Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The VLAN/interfaces stats do not include PVA stats. PVA stats are reported on a per-virtual-server including virtual server plus pool and pool members.

Impact

Interfaces stats only count TMM software traffic stats, and do not include PVA traffic stats. Although this is by design, it makes it difficult to monitor per-VLAN throughput on their devices.

Conditions

Viewing PVA stats.

Workaround

Retrieve pool member PVA stats for server-side PVA stats on the associated VLANs. Also look at PVA stats in the virtual server stats for client-side PVA stats. Note: On the client side, the virtual server might be configured to run on multiple VLANs, so the client-side details are not included in the stats.

Fix Information

The system now reports per-device PVA traffic stats in VLAN and interface stats.
