Best Practice/Advice - Monitoring over load balanced WAN's

stuartwhyte

Hi,

 

We have a full mesh MPLS between our worldwide offices, with a mesh VPN over the internet working active/active.  Traffic is load balanced using Juniper WXC WAN accelerators, based on application definitions.

 

Orion servers are based in our London and Hong Kong datacentres.

 

I'm looking for ideas/advice/best practice on how best to monitor the WAN circuits, the accelerators, and then the equipment behind to give the best mix of availability, whilst reducing false positives in the event of a circuit failing.  I'm expecting that I should use a certain amount of dependencies.

 

Clean sheet/open forum - everything considered.  Discuss!
