Packet Loss graph

This graph shows packets lost during the last second of the scenario run. Packet loss occurs when data packets fail to reach their destination. It can result from gateway overload, signal degradation, channel congestion, or faulty hardware.

Purpose Helps you understand how many data packets were lost over a specific time interval.
X-axis Elapsed time since the start of the run.

The following measurements:

  • The percentage of lost packets from all packets that were sent.
  • The number of data packets that were lost over 60 seconds.
  • The total number of packets that were lost.
Note You cannot change the granularity of the x-axis to a value that is less than the web granularity you defined in the General tab of the Options dialog box.

For Analysis (not applicable to monitoring graphs):

To view information for a specific location:

  1. Click within the graph.
  2. Select Set Filter/ Sort By from the right-click menu to open the Graph Settings dialog box.
  3. In the Filter condition section, select the Location Name row, and select the desired location from the drop-down list.

Example - Network Virtualization Per Group

The following example shows how the total of packet loss for the USA group increased as the scenario progressed.

Example - Network Virtualization per Load Generator

In the following example, you can see that the packet loss is grouped by load generator. This was the mode selected when you enabled Network Virtualization for the scenario.
