In addition, the application landscape is changing dramatically. Applications are moving to public or private clouds to promote efficiencies and tools such as Microsoft Office 365, Google Docs, and WebEx are becoming part of Software as a Services (SaaS) delivery model. Furthermore, the proliferation of mobile devices, adoption of BYOD (Bring-Your- Own-Device) and high-bandwidth video applications put growing demands on WAN usage. Customers who are using premium WAN connections are looking for ways to reduce recurring WAN costs by migrating their WAN to the Internet. For large deployments of hundreds of branch offices, these savings can be significant. For example, migrating 100 branches in 3 cities to Internet connections can save approximately $2.5M+ annually (estimated by Telegeography). While the Internet is quickly becoming a more stable platform with better price-performance and improved reliability, it still falls short of meeting standards for many businesses. Businesses are primarily deploying Internet as WAN in their smaller sites or as a backup path because of the risks. Yet, with Cisco Intelligent IWAN, Internet connections can be managed as a cost-effective, performance-enhancing, reliable and secure alternative 3

4 to realize these financial benefits. Solution Overview Cisco Intelligent WAN is a solution that enables enterprises to realize significant cost savings by moving to less expensive transport options without compromising performance, reliability, and security. The savings from IWAN not only pays for the branch infrastructure investments, but can also free up resources for new, innovative business services. IT can quickly roll out bandwidth intensive applications like video, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and guest Wi-Fi with lower costs and a great user experience. LiveAction is application-aware network management software with QoS control, designed to simplify network management. LiveAction features an innovative visual display, real-time big data analytics and deep control of routers and switches for unparalleled ease of network administration. At a high level, LiveAction has the See-Point-Click-Fix features below: See Visualization Visualize real-time end-to-end network traffic Examine historical QoS, Flow, routing and IP SLA data Point Decision Making Analyze hop-by-hop path, devices, interfaces, and queues Locate and troubleshoot problems Click-Fix -- Control Set up NBAR, FnF, AVC, Medianet, MSI endpoints Edit QoS policies, ACL, PBR, IP SLA For Cisco IWAN, LiveAction provides GUI-based management and situational awareness for intelligent path control and application performance optimization. Specifically, LiveAction offers the following IWAN management functions: Real-time and historical graphical displays of Performance Routing (PfR) intelligent path changes AVC Visualization, Reporting, and Configuration QoS Monitoring and Control using NBAR2 to optimize application performance Overall Network Health and Status The diagram below depicts Cisco IWAN and LiveAction IWAN management solution components: 4

5 Figure 1 - Cisco IWAN and LiveAction IWAN Management Solution Benefits In addition to the financial benefits of moving from premium connections to lower cost Internet links, LiveAction-Cisco IWAN solution provides the following unique benefits to customers: Save Time and Money o Faster IWAN troubleshooting through visual display and situational awareness o Faster, more intuitive and less error-prone configuration and provisioning Facilitate IWAN Adoption o Demonstrate Cisco IWAN value to customers with visualization o Bridge the management gap for an end-to-end IWAN solution Increased Productivity o Deep understanding of application traffic with end-to-end flow visibility o Find and fix problems faster with graphical QoS control o Robust IWAN reporting Ease of Operations o Clear visualization of path changes o Intuitive GUI for faster deployment, configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting System Requirements LiveAction Server Specifications LiveAction is a Windows-based application that comprises of a LiveAction Server and a LiveAction Client. The LiveAction Client software can be run on a standard 32-bit/64-bit Windows-based PC or Mac, accessed via supported web browsers. The LiveAction Server has the following minimum requirements, 5

6 outline below: Number of Devices (routers/switches) Recommended Server Specifications Monitoring Less than 100K (less than 100K flows/sec) 4 Core, 2+ GHz 8 GB RAM 1.5 TB, 7200 RPM* Windows 64-bit Operating System Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 (Professional or Ultimate) K (greater than 100K flows/sec) 6 Core, 2+ GHz 12 GB RAM 3 TB, 7200 RPM* Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows 64-bit Operating System Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 (Professional or Ultimate) K (greater than 200K flows/sec) X2-6 Core, 2+ GHz 16 GB RAM 6 TB, 7200 RPM* Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows 64-bit Operating System Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 (Professional or Ultimate) *For higher performance use RAID 10 or RAID 0, if redundancy is not required Estimated Disk Utilization per flow rate for 30 days: Flow Rate 10K flows/sec 50K flows/sec 100K flows/sec Disk Usage 900 GB 4.5 TB 9 TB LiveAction IWAN Management Licenses LiveAction is a SolutionPlus partner, and LiveAction IWAN Management software is available on the Cisco Global Price List (GPL) as listed below. Multiple licenses can be combined to reach the desired number of devices to be managed. For example, to manage 700 devices, purchase a 500-device license and two 100-device licenses. LiveAction Enterprise - o LiveAction multi-server, multi-user, unlimited historical data, full-function features with Flow, QoS Monitor, QoS Configure, Routing, IP SLA, and LAN modules o In this configuration, Routing includes PBR (Policy-Based Routing), visualization of VRF/ routing/adjacency tables, and next-hop route tracing. IP SLA includes IP SLA dashboard, GUI-based IP SLA test generation, visualization of IP SLA test status, and all IP SLA reports. LAN functionality includes Layer 2 QoS monitoring, LAN path visualization, and STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) visualization. LiveAction WAN LiveAction multi-server, multi-user, rolling 14 days of historical data with Flow, QoS Monitor, QoS Configure, and Routing. 6

7 LiveAction Professional LiveAction for SMBs, single-server, single-user, 5 days of historical data with Flow, QoS Monitor, QoS Configure, Routing, IP SLA, and LAN modules. Up to 200 devices can be managed for this single-server LiveAction Professional version. For more than 200 devices on a single server, please use the multi-server licenses above. Solution Use Cases Use Case 1: Visualizing Application Path Changes IWAN can be enabled on the Cisco ISR-AX and ASR1000-AX platforms, which offer intelligent path control (PfR), security (firewall, IPsec, SSL VPN), and application services (AVC, NBAR2, QoS) at a lower cost. The PfR component of an IWAN can select the best path for each application based upon advanced criteria such as, reachability, delay, loss, jitter, and mean opinion score (MOS). PfR improves application availability by dynamically detecting and routing around network problems like black holes and brownouts that traditional IP routing may not detect. Furthermore, the intelligent load balancing capability of PfR can optimize path selection based on link usage or circuit pricing. To complement IWAN, LiveAction visualizes application before and after path changes from PfR, so customers can verify that key application paths are being adjusted as needed. In particular, when PfR makes a path change to protect the applications due to an Out-Of-Policy (OOP) condition, LiveAction renders the end-to-end path changes graphically from the branch Master Controller (MC)/Border Router (BR) through the service provider(s) to the data center where the applications reside, providing more meaningful and actionable information than the standard PfR CLI outputs. In the example below, a brown-out caused an Unreachable Criteria OOP condition, which prompted PfR to select an alternate path. You can easily see how the green flow for the application was moved from the upper (AT&T) path to the lower (Verizon) path. Before Brown-Out (Northern Path) After Brown-Out (Southern Path) Figure 2 LiveAction s Visualization of PfR path changes In addition to visually displaying the path changes, LiveAction generates TCAs (Threshold Crossing Alert) for the Unreachable Criteria OOP condition that triggered the above path changes, and for easy troubleshooting, color codes these alerts Red based on pre-configured thresholds that have been 7

8 exceeded. In this example, the diagram below shows the OOP events in the alert and device views. Figure 3 Out-of-Policy Threshold Crossing Alerts Another important point that customers want to understand is what applications were moved by the PfR-managed traffic. LiveAction can provide application traffic usage per interface. With an option to filter traffic by applications, classes, or prefixes, LiveAction can report that after the path change, the associated application traffic going through ATT is now shown going through Verizon as shown below: Before Path Change After Path Change Application Traffic To ATT Application Traffic To Verizon Figure 4 Application Traffic Being Moved 8

9 Use Case 2 Leveraging NBAR2 and QoS Control LiveAction provides AVC flow visualization, robust AVC reporting, and full NBAR2 QoS control to optimize application performance. The diagram below shows LiveAction display of NBAR2 applications and associated AVC metrics such as application, server, and network response times. This graphical representation can greatly assist in troubleshooting efforts. NBAR2 application names Figure 5 - LiveAction AVC Flow Visualization LiveAction NBAR Comparison report enables network administrators to understand what application traffic is incoming to/outgoing from an interface and how much bandwidth, thus providing useful knowledge for QoS shaping and trending. In the example below, LiveAction recognizes the NBAR2 applications both entering and leaving the same interface, enabling users to understand what applications traverse various devices in the network. NBAR applications inbound an interface NBAR applications outbound the same interface Figure 6 NBAR Application Traffic Comparison LiveAction allows full NBAR2 QoS control on Cisco routers both on a per-application level and also at the higher group level. Thus, network engineers can take advantage of Cisco s NBAR2 grouping feature and LiveAction QoS graphical configurator to vastly reduce the complexity and verbosity of the router 9

10 configuration. In the example below, simply selecting the browsing category enables the user to include applications such as flash-video, flashmyspace, flashyahoo, http, shockwave and others. Figure 7 NBAR QoS Control Use Case 3 - QoS Monitoring and Configuration Part of understanding and improving application performance is the ability to efficiently monitor and configure QoS. Via AVC flow and CBQoS monitoring, LiveAction tracks NBAR2 application and QoS perclass performance and provides extensive analyses, making it easy for IT engineers to fully understand QoS behaviors on their networks. With congestion indicator visualization and color-coded status, LiveAction offers proactive QoS monitoring that detects and alerts on critical policy drops before problems are reported by end users as shown in Figure 8. Congestion Indicator (amber color) QoS Marking Figure 8 QoS Monitoring & Visualization LiveAction s real-time QoS graphical reporting at intervals as short as 10-seconds enables quick validation of policy changes. For example, in Figure 9, once a policy is applied to police the Interactive Video traffic to 512 Kbps, LiveAction s graphical display of QoS information allows network administrators to monitor the class and see how the policy has taken effect. It can be seen that the 10

11 traffic was throttled down as intended. Figure 9 QoS Policy Impact In the example below, LiveAction QoS control feature resolves an issue where Bittorrent slows down MS Office 365 performance. By policing Bittorrent traffic through LiveAction QoS GUI interface, one can instantly validate the performance of MS Office 365 which was restored to a favorable level as shown: MS-Office 365 BitTorrent Figure 10 BitTorrent Traffic Throttled Down For increased MS Office 365 Performance LiveAction graphical QoS configurator and management empowers IT engineers of all experience levels to create, edit, and implement highly effective QoS policies on live networks with complete ease and confidence. LiveAction has deep QoS expertise built-in based on extensive research of the features, functions, and idiosyncrasies of Cisco devices. With LiveAction, QoS configurations can be created from scratch or using Cisco best practice templates with hundreds of device specific rules and guidelines. Once QoS policies have been created, they can be immediately deployed or scheduled on multiple devices or interfaces. Below is an example of LiveAction s graphical QoS configurator. 11

12 Create Hierarchical Policy Copy Policy Add Policy Edit QoS Statements Figure 11 QoS Graphical Configurator For example, LiveAction can create and manage QoS policies for Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Network (DMVPN) tunnel endpoints and then apply them to tunnel interfaces. Each policy can then be assigned to the desired next hop routing protocol (NHRP) tunnel interface. 12

13 Figure 12 DMVPN QoS Configuration Use Case 4: ASA and ASR 1K Security Event Reporting ASA Network Security Event Logging (NSEL) Processing ASA NSEL event information indicates when flows are created, deleted, or denied by an ACL. Combined with GEO IP information, LiveAction provides real-time views of flows going through an ASA with country information. The flows are graphically traced from specific inside, outside and DMZ interfaces for easier response and understanding. ASR 1K High Speed Logging (HSL) Event Processing The ASR1K zone-based firewall writes HSL records through NetFlow Version 9 when sessions are created and torn down. Capturing these HSL flows, LiveAction visualizes Audit, Alert, Drop, and event notifications. LiveAction also provides network visualization of HSL events on the topology map, device views, and historical playback. This interactive view allows ACLs to be directly created from the HSL flow. Figure 13 Session creation/removal flows from ASR1K HSL 13

14 Use Case 5 - Network Health and Status LiveAction provides additional Network Health and Status reporting for IWAN Management, including but not limited to: Network discovery and network topology LiveAction discovers devices and draws them on the topology map. This topology is also interactive in that network administrators can perform commands or take actions (like creating ACL off a flow) by right-clicking on that topology. This interactive topology is at the core of LiveAction s intuitive See Point Click-Fix user interface model. End-to-end flow visualization - LiveAction visualizes the end-to-end flows and imposes them on the network topology to help network administrators graphically understand traffic pattern, bandwidth consumption, priority setting, and other performance conditions. Figure 14 LiveAction Interactive Topology Network-wide audits of QoS policies With a single click of a button, LiveAction generates a policy and performance audit report analyzing QoS configurations for errors and performance issues and details this information in an easy-to-navigate report. This report will show everything you need to know about your QoS policies in great detail including configuration settings, performance issues, drops, and policy errors. 14

15 Figure 15 Network-wide QoS Audit Report Network monitoring using NetFlow, IPFIX, SNMP, IP SLA, routing and LAN statistics Threshold crossing alert processing User-defined thresholds can be configured such that Threshold Crossing Alerts (TCAs) are generated by LiveAction to warn network administrators of impending performance issues Dashboard LiveAction features System, Flow, QoS, and IP SLA dashboards to provide at-aglance status for top application performance, site performance, networking device CPU/memory usage, link utilization, interface up/down, top QoS conditions on interfaces, links, and Layer 2 devices (drops, congestions) Routing visualization - LiveAction provides real-time routing layer visualizations and path debugging tools for Cisco networks. In addition, the module s policy-based routing editor provides a high degree of traffic engineering for managing policy-specific forwarding paths. Getting Started Enable Cisco Intelligent WAN Figure 15 shows a typical IWAN environment with dual transport paths between the branch and the corporate data center, a Cisco integrated service router at the branch and dual Cisco routers at the data center. Though one Internet and one MPLS VPN transport path are shown here, the transport can be provided by any combination of transport services (MPLS VPN, Business Internet or Broadband). 15

16 Figure 16 Typical IWAN Environment Please refer to and for more specific platform, connectivity, and configuration requirements. In general, Cisco IWAN requirements include the following: 1. WAN connections Dual MPLS-VPN service, or a primary MPLS-VPN and a secondary DMVPN over the public Internet, or dual DMVPN over the public Internet 2. Cisco Application Experience platforms provides increasing performance and module slot density that include licenses for Data (DATA), Security (SEC) and Wide Area Application Services (WAAS). CSR1000V ASR 1000 AX - Cisco ASR 1001 (5G) and ASR 1002-X (5G, 10G, 20G and 36G) ISR AX - Cisco 4400-AX, 3900-AX, 2900-AX, 1900-AX Series Application Experience Routers and an AX Feature Set software licensing option for 800 Series. If you buy the new AX hardware bundle, security license is part of the bundle. If you buy generic ISR, ASR platforms and add AX licenses, the Security license has to be purchased separately. Note: Ensure you refresh Access Routing installed base (ISR G1 and older) to AX, or upgrade ISR G2 to AX 3. Router Configurations a. Configure ACL or Firewall for security on Internet connections for threat defense and secure Internet access. 16

17 Install LiveAction b. Configure DMVPN - The IWAN independent transport solution requires a DMVPN dualcloud design, each with a single hub router. The DMVPN routers use tunnel interfaces that support IP unicast as well as IP multicast and broadcast traffic, including the use of dynamic routing protocols. c. Enable Cisco Performance Routing (PfR) in both the branch office and headquarters ISR- AX devices if you are using more than one WAN link. To do this, you ll need to define the criteria for routing the mission-critical protocols across the WAN. Configure the branchoffice hub master controller and all branch master controllers, which will then configure their corresponding border routers. d. Enable any desired Application Visibility and Control (AVC) components to provide application visibility. The NBAR2 Custom Protocol feature enables the administrator to create custom application signatures for application protocols not pre-defined in the standard Cisco protocols packs. This process identifies all traffic traversing the ISR-AX by application. It can be trained to recognize new protocols or encrypted protocols. Note that this step can be performed with LiveAction (for ISR-AX) through simple point-andclick operations instead of coding hundreds of CLI commands. e. Enable WAAS to improve network responsiveness and provide LAN-like performance on the WAN. This process reduces application latency through application-specific optimizations. It also reduces the WAN usage through advanced caching techniques, and optimizes the TCP performance over high-latency WANs. To install LiveAction, follow the steps below and refer to the LiveAction User Guide for more information 1. Download LiveAction to the server 2. Run the LiveAction server installer 3. Load your LiveAction permanent license 4. Activate your permanent license 5. Install your LiveAction client on end-user Windows PCs or Mac s Add Devices to the Topology Map The first step when using LiveAction is to add your network devices to the topology. You can add multiple devices in one operation using the device discovery function ( Discover Device icon) or add devices one at a time ( Add Device icon). Please refer to LiveAction User Guide, Chapter 4, Add Devices To Topology for more detailed instructions. Provision NetFlow and QoS Monitoring After any supported Cisco devices are added to the topology they need to be configured for NetFlow and QoS (basic SNMP, NBAR and CBQoS) and NetFlow. LiveAction uses basic NetFlow to draw the end-to-end flows across the topology and to show the before and after PfR path changes. In addition, LiveAction also leverages PfR and AVC NetFlow records to provide OOP conditions and application response time statistics respectively, among other things. Once the devices are added, the Device Discovery wizard will prompt you to configure the devices you have just added. Click Yes to configure them with the device setup wizard. Please refer to LiveAction User Guide, Chapter 4, Configure Cisco Devices for QoS, Flow and IP SLA for more detailed instructions. This step allows for basic NetFlow and SNMP to be collected. PfR and AVC flows are also needed for 17

18 IWAN management and that will be separately configured in the next few steps. Create Network Objects for Devices This step is to change the IP address box to device icon on the topology map. Right-click in the system topology and select Create Network Object to add a network object with descriptive text. To edit or delete a network object, right-click on the object and select Edit Network Object. Objects may be connected using the Connect icon in the topology view toolbar. Three types of Network Objects are available: Annotation only, IP Address End Point or Merged clouds. Please refer to LiveAction User Guide, Chapter 4, Adding Generic Network Objects and Annotations for more detailed instructions. Enable PfR Flows For IOS provisioning of the MC/BRs, please refer to PfR Configuration Guide and In addition to basic NetFlow above, you will need to enable PfR NetFlow V9 export. The PfR NetFlow records enable LiveAction to report on OOP conditions that triggered the path changes. Enter the following CLI on the PfR Master Controller Enable AVC Flows flow exporter PFR_EXPORT destination <LIVEACTION S IP Address> source <SOURCE INTERFACE> transport udp 2055 template data timeout 60 option interface-table timeout 60 option exporter-stats timeout 60 option vrf-table timeout 60 option sampler-table timeout 60 option application-table timeout 60 option metadata-version-table timeout 60! pfr master exporter PFR_EXPORT LiveAction uses FNF and NBAR for traffic statistics, PA (Performance Agent on ISR-AX) and MMA (Metric Mediation Agent for ASR1K) for application response time (ART) measurements, and PerfMon for Medianet. For ISR-AX platforms, AVC can be enabled by LiveAction through the Flow Configuration wizard where users select the AVC metrics to collect rather than having to code a series of CLIs. For ASR platforms, AVC NetFlow needs to be configured via CLI as shown in Appendix A. LiveAction inventories the ISR-AX devices and provide a list of capabilities as shown below: 18

19 Figure 17 - Enabling AVC Flows with LiveAction By selecting this option for the interfaces, LiveAction generates the CLIs in the back-end and push them to the devices to enable these flows for analysis. 19

20 Validate traditional, PfR and AVC Flow lows Select the appropriate NetFlow types (basic, AVC, PfR) under the drop down in the device view to ensure you can see flows coming in and going out of the interface as shown below. 20

21 Figure 18- Validating Basic, PfR and AVC Flows Set Alert Thresholds Under Tools, Configure Alerts, and Flow Triggers Tab, click on PfR to enable Alerts to be generated by LiveAction when an OOP condition occurs as shown in Figure

22 Figure 19 Setting PfR TCA Filter Traffic to Visualize Path Changes To see the before and after application path changes between different locations as shown in Figure 2, filter the traffic by clicking on the Configure Flow Display Filters option from the Flow tab. From here, you can add an entry and select Match IP, Range, Subnet or Match Device Interface to specify device end points you want to see the traversed path. 22

23 Figure 20 Filter Traffic To Visualize Path Changes Conclusion Cisco IWAN enables businesses to deliver an uncompromised experience over any connection. With Cisco IWAN, traffic is dynamically routed based on application, endpoint, and network conditions to deliver the best-quality experience. The realized savings from IWAN not only pays for the infrastructure upgrades, but also frees resources for business innovation. LiveAction for IWAN management increases Cisco IWAN value to customers by providing unparalleled visualization that bridges the management gap for an end-to-end IWAN solution, resulting in faster IWAN troubleshooting and easier justification of IWAN ROI. For More Information LiveAction is available to be resold on the Cisco Global Price List (GPL) as shown in the LiveAction IWAN Management Licenses section.
