This article provides the formula used to calculate packet loss.


  • VNQM
  • Orion IP SLA Manager 3.0 or later


Packet loss is calculated using the following formula.

Packet loss = (SD + DS + MIA) / (SD + DS + MIA + LA + OOS + N)


SD = rttMonLatestJitterOperPacketLossSD (<op_num/>)
DS = rttMonLatestJitterOperPacketLossDS (<op_num/>)
OOS = rttMonLatestJitterOperPacketOutOfSequence (<op_num/>)
MIA = rttMonLatestJitterOperPacketMIA (<op_num/>)
LA = rttMonLatestJitterOperPacketLateArrival (<op_num/>)
N = rttMonLatestJitterOperNumOfRTT (<op_num/>)
<op_num/> = The operation number of your VoIP Jitter operation.
