Hello guys, I got a quesiont when testing the NQA and the ping result.

Below is sample configuration

[HQ-6720]dis cu

#

nqa test-instance 1065635Mumdc_to_Ashok_Andheri_TCL

test-type icmp

destination-address ipv4 192.168.1.5

source-address ipv4 192.168.1.6

frequency 300

probe-count 15

datasize 56

start now

#

return


We have configured NQA for some the major links. But as checked there is lot of variations in the latency for results of NQA.

Please find below Screen Shot captured.

NQA entry(1065635,Mumdc_to_Ashok_Andheri_TCL) history:

Above showing as the latecy value to be 29 ms. But actually checked the latency by ping is much less.

@sim_157 hi,

Ping And NQA is the difference task. and the timestamp is not same.

Ping time is the icmp packet send out the and received at the physical interface.

NQA time is Ping time + CPU process time, Because NQA participate in processing with CPU, And CPU need time to deal with those packets.

For easy understanding please reference:
