Performance Troubleshooting

P7 Networks uCPE management portal enables customers to rapidly identify the uCPE and VNF performance trends. This makes it simple to compare current performance with a reference baseline as well as to identify when a new uCPE or VNF behaviors first appeared. With an extremely complex IT infrastructure and fast-changing technologies, obtaining answers to simple questions such as “who is using what?”, “what is connected to what?”, “at what level of performance?” is not an easy task. P7 Networks uCPE management portal helps users understand the configuration of their network and data stream flows, identifying where data volumes are high, response times long, and errors frequent. The portal gives you the right amount of information to document the root cause and the method of remediation used.

Isolate VNFs from network performance degradation

The data is summarized in dashboards for analysts to understand each of the four Ws:

  • Which VNFs were affected?

Affected VNF can be isolated, once the topology detail is analyzed.

  • When did performance degradation take place?

The when aspect is important for predictive analysis. In addition to finding when the problem occurred,
P7 Networks uCPE management portal generates a baseline to understand what the “normal” behavior of the application is, and when its performance was degraded.

  • Which users were impacted?

With a single click, users can view which servers and end-users have experienced degraded performance and where to look for the root cause.

  • Which application transactions were involved?

Users can easily identify the specific transactions impacted so that they can precisely understand the root cause.

Notifications center

Logs are available for all the transactions that take place in each uCPE and their respective VNFs are shown in the notification center. Any changes or updates are reflected here. These changes can range from link creation, starting and stopping the VNFs, port configuration to the status of uCPE and VNFs.
