SD-WAN Overlay - Viptela VPN Peer tunnels and performance tests supported BETA

In 22.11 Highlight announce further support for Cisco Viptela SD-WAN integration.

Highlight seamlessly integrates with the Viptela vManage API to collect stability, load and health data on the SD-WAN environment, presenting this data alongside the networks underlay connectivity and LAN components to provide an easy to use single-pane-of-glass.

Adding Highlight to Viptela SD-WAN improves the alerting, reporting and transparency of the SD-WAN overlay. If the service provider or enterprise are managing multiple SD-WAN vendors, Highlight can provide the same easy to use single-pane-of-glass over multiple vendors, thus simplifying the technology.

In 22.11, it's possible to discover Cisco Viptela bearers, VPN peers/tunnels and performance tests. These are available throughout Highlight in:

  • SD-WAN admin and edit
  • Strip charts and dedicated Details pages
  • Alerting
  • Reporting

Having both tunnels and tests in Highlight enables a service provider to offer a more comprehensive managed service, alerting when thresholds are breached and providing historic reports on service performance to customers.

Blips indicate API call failures (ongoing and recovered) or tunnel down.

It's possible to create "Tunnel-Availability" alerts and run reports specifically for tunnels which can include the parent device. It's also possible to create alerts on SD-WAN performance tests and run reports specifically for these tests which can include the parent tunnel. Highlight reporting on SD-WAN performance tests can identify trends with problem tunnels.
