Traffic monitoring is an important function for managing network resources.
Data collected for IP trunk groups are available to network management systems. The sonusGlobalMIB files are used to report IP trunk group traffic data (call performance statistics). For IP trunk groups, the MIB also includes bandwidth and media performance statistics as defined below.
Call performance statistics for IP trunk groups is measured using a logical call leg resource. Statistics are reported for every trunk group, for the current interval and also for a number of past intervals. The number of intervals and the time period of each interval are configurable.
This data, along with other data reported by SBC and other systems in the network, is analyzed by traffic managers to identify trouble spots or congestion issues in the network to determine facility needs. Traffic managers can then react to this information and implement appropriate traffic controls.
