To enable round-trip time tests, configure the tests using the Data Aggregator REST API. CA Performance Management supports the following test types:
The following diagram shows how the various components participate in the RTT test feature:
To configure RTT tests, complete the following steps:
The following information is required to configure a test:
Note: To determine the IpDomainId, use the Data Aggregator REST API.
Create an SNMP profile and specify Yes for Use in SNMP SET.
For more information, see SNMP Profiles.
Apply a monitoring profile with the IPSLA-related metric families that you want to monitor to the target devices. Then, run discovery for those devices.
For each device, associate the SET profile to the device item.
Through the UI:
Through the Data Aggregator API:
http://DA_HOST:8581/rest/devices/manageable/<device item id>
Tip: To find the Item ID of an SNMP profile, go to the following REST URL:
This example associates the SNMP Profile identified by Item ID 736 with device 1144:
Use a REST client to create RTT profiles. CA Performance Management uses the RTT profiles to configure the tests on the target devices. Each profile initiates the specified action type to create, update, or delete a test on the device. The profile is not used again after CA Performance Management performs the specified action. Old RTT profiles are deleted.
