General question about using UCM with Cisco Medianet Performance Monitor:
Suppose I have a single Cisco router with three interfaces- gi01, gi02, and gi03.
If I apply the perf-mon service policy to every interface in the input direction, then perf-mon will be able to monitor RTP traffic streams in both directions, as show here:
Caller A --> gi01( X )gi02 --> Caller B
Caller A <-- gi01( X )gi02 <-- Caller B
Question: What would happen in UCM if I were to apply the perf-mon service policy to every interface in both the input and output directions?
I know the router would report each RTP stream twice- for example when the stream from A --> B entered Gi0/1 and again when it exited gi0/2.
Would this cause UCM to count the stream statistics twice, or is UCM intelligent enough to de-duplicate the data it receives from the router?
Answer: UCM is smart enough to de-duplicate the flows. UCM leverages our NFA Harvester code which already supports that.
