Manage global QoE settings

You can control how Packet Analysis Sensors behave by changing the settings on Manage Global QoE Settings page. Settings are distributed to sensors regularly when the agent is updated. You can manually update an agent from the Manage Agents page.

QoE applications

Control how you monitor QoE applications for both Network Packet Analysis Sensors and Server Packet Analysis Sensors.

Auto-detect QoE applications

Use this to detect and monitor traffic associated with all applications that fulfill the auto-detection rules defined on this page. This is active by default. You must select applications manually when this option is disabled.

If you automatically detect nodes, you should also automatically detect applications to receive all metrics.

HTTP application domain detection level

Choose how QoE breaks up monitored http traffic.

  • Top level (http://*) - Monitor all http traffic.
  • Second level (http://hostname/*) - Separate and monitor http traffic based on domains.
  • Third level (http://hostname/path1/*) - Separate and monitor http traffic based on the domain and first level directory within each domain.

Add auto-detected applications

Refine the monitored applications by choosing to monitor all application traffic sources, traffic destinations, or all application traffic. Packet sources and destinations are based on the source or destination IP address included in the packet.

  • Transaction destinations (servers) - Monitor applications that receive traffic based on the destination IP address of the packet.
  • Transaction sources (client) - Monitor applications that generate traffic based on the source IP address of the packet.
  • Either a source or destination - Monitor all application traffic.

For each node, include top X application that have at least Y% of total QoE traffic.

Filter the number of monitored applications to applications that generate a certain amount of network traffic.

Nodes with QoE traffic

Control how you monitor QoE nodes for Network Packet Analysis Sensor.

Auto-detect QoE nodes

Use this to detect and monitor the first 50 nodes with network traffic. This is active by default. You must select nodes manually when this option is disabled.

If you automatically detect nodes, you should also automatically detect applications to receive all metrics.

Add auto-detected monitored nodes

Further refine the nodes that are monitored by choosing to monitor all nodes that are traffic sources, traffic destinations, or all nodes that generate or receive network traffic. Packet sources and destinations are based on the source or destination IP address included in the packet.

  • Transaction destinations (servers) - Monitor nodes that receive traffic based on the destination IP address of the packet.
  • Transaction sources (client) - Monitor nodes that generate traffic based on the source IP address of the packet.
  • Either a source or destination - Monitor all traffic.
