This section provides an example how you can create an HTTP IP SLA Operation on your devices and add it to VNQM for monitoring.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) IP SLA operations measure distributed web services response times. These operations ensure that your HTTP servers are operational and performing as expected.

You cannot add operations that have been previously created with SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager. If you have already created an operation with the same operation number, you must manually remove the operation from the device.

To add HTTP IP SLA operations to your network devices:

  1. Log in to your SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager server as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings > VoIP & Quality Settings.
  3. Click Add new operations in the Manage IP SLA Operations section.
  4. Select Create new operations, and click Next.
  5. Select HTTP, and click Next.
  6. Select the nodes you want to add to your new HTTP operations, and click Next.

    If you do not see your IP SLA routers in the list, you must add the devices before you can continue. For more information, see Adding Devices for Monitoring in the Web Console.

  7. Enter the URL of the HTTP server, and click Next.
  8. Enter the frequency for the operation to be performed.
  9. Define your warning, critical, and maximum threshold values.
  10. To assign a type of service (ToS) or Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) name for this path, expand Advanced, and enter the type of service number and VRF name in the appropriate fields.

    • The ToS octet is a decimal value (0‑255) that sets the precedence for VoIP traffic monitored with Cisco IP SLA operations. The default ToS value used by SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager is 184, corresponding to Expedited Forwarding (EF) per hop behavior (PHB) and a Differentiated Service Code Point (DSCP) value of 46. For more information about the ToS octet, see Setting traffic precedence.
    • VRFs only exist on provider edge routers (PE). A VRF is a routing and forwarding table instance, and you can have more than one VRF per PE. The VRF includes routes that are available to a certain set of sites. A VRF is named based on the VPNs it services and on the role of the CE in the topology.
  11. Click Next.
  12. To rename operations or edit any other operation properties, select the operations you want to modify, and click Edit.
  13. Review the operations you want to create, and click Create Operations.

    Depending on the number of operations that are being created, this process can take several minutes.
