Edge Service and Virtual Circuit Traffic Summary

Khryssee

Hello everyone,

We're using Virtual circuits between Fabric ports & Edge virtual devices, it works fine but still it's impossible to get the link usage statistics as for other circuits.
Any news about that option that is missing?

Thanks 🙂

Khryssee,

My name is Tom, I am a Product Manager for Interconnection at Equinix. Happy to provide some context:

Unfortunately, usage statistics for virtual circuits between Fabric Ports and Network Edge virtual devices aren't currently available. The product team is aware of the desire to have these and is working on a cross product solution. They are working on this solution now and hope to deliver it in beta during the first half of 2023.

Best Regards,

Tom

Many thanks Tom,

I believe that we (the community) will be very excited to get this new fonctionnality when it will be ready.

Hello,
Now that we can have traffic statistics from the interfaces of Virtual devices perhaps could we link that with the Virtual Circuit statistics? 
Is it planned as a future release/change?

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,

Hi Khryssee,

 

My name's Michael and I'm a product manager for Fabric. To make sure I understand your question, are you asking if it's possible to get connection statistics for all connections on a virtual device?

 

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your message.

To clarify the topic, we are able now to see some bandwidth statistics directly from the Interface of a Virtual device, that's really great.

My question was about a potential next improvement that could be to provide the same kind of statistics but from the Virtual Circuits.

Khryssee,

Thanks for the clarification.

Are there statistics you're looking for that aren't currently available in the "Connection Utilization" tab when looking at a virtual connection in the connections inventory?

Hello Michael,

Indeed we are missing the information of the traffic in the section 'Connection Utilization', when accessing this section we got the message below.

'Statistics for Connections originating from Virtual Devices are not available at this time.'
We are talking there about a Virtual Circuit built between a Fabric Port and a Virtual Edge device.

Thanks for your help,

Regards,

Khrys

Hi Khrysse,

I checked with the team and we're hoping to work on statistics for virtual connections from virtual devices in the second half of 2024. Hope this helps.

Best,
