Hi All I will be logging a support case about this tomorrow, but thought I would ask the community, we have VNQM 4.1 and are running a number of IPSLA's. It appears that the jitter and Latency values of the IPSLA's have swapped, in that we are seeing latency of 4 milliseconds at sites completely on the other side of the country (Australia) and are seeing supposedly consistent jitter of 40ms everywhere, which makes no sense.
Has anyone had this issue before?
For us this turned out to be due to a Cisco Bug on 15.x IOS routers, it was not a Solarwinds issue. That might be the cause for you as well.
After 42 days the graphs would swap due to the cisco bug
The bug contents:
For things like this, I usually try a couple of additional steps:
1. Restart all Orion services via the OrionServiceManager, and retest
2. If step 1 doesn't work, re-run the Config Wizard
The idea is that some settings are only checked when services start, and other settings may depend on the Wizard.
Finally, if all else fails, open a Support Case. There's a million ways for something to fail, and only a few ways for it to work properly.
Best of luck
I opened a case on this, and SW engineer, Jeremy, gave me a simple fix.
Go to Settings > Manage Accounts
- Edit the account you are using
- Scroll down
- Click the + to expand Voip and Network Quality Manager settings
- Check the settings for IP SLA Operations Summary View
- Set it to "default"
- Click Submit
I noticed my Admin account had them all set to "default", whereas AD groups I had created had the name of the the setting, e.g. IP SLA Web Summary View said IP SLA Web Summary View. I set all of the IP SLA Views to "default".
I check 2 other Orion servers, and they were all set to "default" for the AD groups, so I suspect these got changed when I was troubleshooting a migration problem of IP SLA from one server to another. We had to do some SQL queries to fix some DB errors, and that may have changed the settings, or multiple impatient reinstalls may have affected it.
Thanks for the info, but it looks like all of mine are default, so I don't think this is the issue. We are trying some different things, but may need to log a support case.
On one of my servers, it looks ok - ICMP Path Echo web page is indeed ICMP Path Echo, and ICMP Path Jitter web page is ICMP Path Jitter.
On another Orion install, the ICMP Path Echo web page has a web page title (that shows up on the FFox tab) that says IP SLA UDP Jitter, the text in the web page says ICMP Path Echo Operation Details.
Clicking Customize Page shows IP SLA UDP Jitter Operation Details View, and the resources would seem to UDP Jitter.
On the same failing Orion install, the ICMP Path Jitter shows IP SLA UDP Jitter in the FFox tab, the page itself says ICMP Path Jitter, and Customize Page shows SLA UDP Jitter.
I tried doing a repair on VNQM with no luck.
So I rolled the dice again, and did an uninstall. I expected the config wizard to pop up, but it didn't. So I did a re-install ... and the config wizard popped up in the middle of that (5-10 minute delay from the uninstall). I guess our system is getting big, but I'll bet other people have stumbled due to the lack of apparent activity.
So I cancelled the config wizard, finished the install (I hate to cancel installs - almost guaranteed corruption), and ran the config wizard manually, then I rebooted.
Any clues would be appreciated, or we'll punt to SolarWinds support within a few days.
