I want to install the IP SLA on dedicated server without other Solarwinds packages, i mean i want to put the IP SLA manager on didicated server, can i do that??
I speak of consequence on my network architecture for IP SLA if written command, behind me I just do not take the risk that my network architecture falls.
So I'd like to know what I risk behind setting up IP SLA?
Hoping to have understood!
there should not be any risk behind setting up IP SLA on your network. IPSLA operations have a minimal impact on network health. The only problem could be when you set up operations to be tested too frequently or you have a lot of overlapping operations on the same paths.
You may take a look into the IPSLA admin guide page 24 - "Understanding the Impact IP SLA Operations" where you may see a model situation.
The question one very important:
I have a question to ask yourself:
What commands exactly as written IPSLA?
And it is the consequence?
The question two very important:
What are the equipment that are supported by IP SLA ?
Just to clarify, we do not support IPSLA inside an MPLS network. You must apply IPSLA to the CPE (MPLS edge). That is where you can specify which VFR to use in the IPSLA manager wizard.
So do you mean by this that the IP SLA statistics can be gotten at the edge of the MPLS network??
I mean from PE router to PE router??

Typically the PE is the edge of the MPLS network. The WAN connection from the CPE to PE is IP. The MPLS provider will only let you set up operations on the CPE, and sometimes they will not allow that if the CPE is provider managed. If this is the case you can setup the operation on the next router or switch in your LAN (as the source) and choose a router or switch on the remote LAN as the target. These should be as close to the CPE routers as possible. Specify the VRF when you setup the operation.
