I am using Orion NPM to monitor the MPLS WAN links. For each MPLS interface on Cisco 3845, 2 entries come up. For example, 'G0/1.2077' is the configured interface, and 'G0/1.2077-mpls layer' is the second entry shown the NFM. There are huge statistics differences between these 2 entries. In my case, the vlan 2077 is allocated 2M bandwidth. Traffic shaping is configured. The second entry(with MPLS layer) always shows over 400% link utiliztion; while the first one shows only 30% link utilization. The shaping is never seen active.
Is this link really congested? How to understand the 'mpls layer' statistics?
Any response is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
did you end up getting a response to this ?
