What is Cisco IP SLA?
Cisco IP Service Level Agreement (Cisco IP SLA), originally developed by Cisco Systems, is a network measurement technology. It enables the generation of synthetic network traffic between different network devices, such as routers or switches. By continuously testing this traffic, Cisco IP SLA provides valuable insights into network performance, latency, jitter, packet loss, and other metrics, offering an objective evaluation to assess the network's service quality. It supports a wide range of network performance metrics and can simulate various types of network services.
How to monitor Cisco IP SLA?
ServicePilot makes it very easy to monitor Cisco IP SLA. Simply configure the SNMP interface of the Cisco IP SLA enabled device. Then use the ServicePilot web interface to add a resource from the ServicePilot network-cisco-ip-sla package.
How to install a cisco-ip-sla resource?
- Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
- Add a new cisco-ip-sla resource via the web interface (
/prmresources) or via API (
/prmpackagespage), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.
Details of the cisco-ip-sla package are located in the

ServicePilot enables you to deliver IT services faster and more securely with automated discovery and advanced monitoring features.
By correlating the technology CISCO IP SLA with APM and infrastructure monitoring, ServicePilot is able to provide a more comprehensive view of an organization's IT environment.
This allows IT teams to quickly identify and diagnose issues that may be impacting application performance, and take corrective action before end-users are affected.
