SD-WAN GUI and monitoring enhancements

The SD-WAN pages in the GUI are updated to simplify SD-WAN configuration. New charts and monitoring capabilities are also added. DNS is now a supported protocol in performance SLA.

SD-WAN interfaces

The SD-WAN interface list shows pie charts at the top of the list, and includes more information about each interface in the table, such as the number of sessions and the bytes sent and received.

The gateway configuration for an SD-WAN interface that is using DHCP is simplified.

SD-WAN rules

In the SD-WAN rules list, the interface that is currently selected by the rule has a checkmark next to its name in the Members column. Hover the cursor over the checkmark to open a tooltip that gives the reason why that member is selected, such as has best measured performance. Even if multiple members are selected, only the highest ranked member is highlighted, unless the mode is Maximize Bandwidth (SLA) (load-balance).

Hit Count and Last Used columns are also added to the table.

Hover over a member name to open the SD-WAN member tooltip. It includes health check and SLA statistics tables.

When editing an SD-WAN rule, the strategies are listed on cards that include a brief description of that strategy. The gutter on the right side of the page includes the hit count for the rule, when it was last used, and a table showing statistics for the currently selected interfaces and SLA targets (depending on the selected strategy).

When Manual mode is selected, multiple members can be selected.

Performance SLA

SLA targets

When configuring a performance SLA, by default, only one SLA target can be configured. Additional targets can be created in the CLI, after which they will also be available from the GUI.

DNS protocol

The IPv4 DNS protocol can be selected, and the system DNS servers can be used.

In the Performance SLA table, the Detect Server column will show that the system DNS servers are used.

Participants

When adding a new performance SLA, by default, all SD-WAN members are included as participants.

In the CLI, member is set to zero to include all participants.

config system virtual-wan-link
    config health-check
        edit "SLA1"
            set system-dns enable
            set members 0
        next
    end
end

Routing monitor

Hit Count and Last Used columns are added to the Network > Policy Routes page and Policy Routing widget.
