Working with Traffic Management diagnostic tools

Traffic Management diagnostic tools are available for Performance properties, and are intended to:
  • Provide a way to diagnose traffic changes for properties
  • Understand mapping decisions made by Traffic Management
  • Gain insight into the composition of your traffic

Table 1 describes the available diagnostic tools for Global Traffic Management.

Traffic Management diagnostic tools
Tool Description
Data Center Diagnostics Using performance properties, this tool displays the top five autonomous systems and the top five countries mapped to each data center at a point in time, as a percentage of total estimated traffic mapped to the given data center in the selected domain.

After making your report selections, click Run Report to view results.

For detailed information about how to configure Data Center Diagnostics, see Data Center Diagnostics.

Get Domain Information (DIG) Enables you to perform a DNS look-up of a GTM property from an edge server.
The following query tools are available:
  • Get Domain Information (GTMDIG)
  • Network Connectivity Test (GTMMTR)

For detailed information about how to configure Get Domain Information (DIG), see Get Domain Information (DIG) .

IP Diagnostics Lets you find out how and why a particular name server is mapped for any of your performance properties, at any time.

For detailed information about how to configure IP Diagnostics, see IP Diagnostics .

Map Diff Diagnostics Provides an analysis of the differences in name server-to-data center maps for two points in time, and reports the top differences between them for each data center, in terms of AS (autonomous systems) and country of origin. This information is useful if you notice a traffic shift and want to understand what shifted.

After making your report selections, click Compare Maps to view results.

For detailed information about how to configure Map Diff Diagnostics, see Map Diff Diagnostics .

Network Connectivity Test (MTR) Lets you run a network connectivity test from a GTM servermonitor to an origin server. Any server specified in a Traffic Target may be selected for testing.

Use this tool when diagnosing individual liveness test failures.

The following query tools are available:
  • Get Domain Information (GTMDIG)
  • Network Connectivity Test (GTMMTR)

For detailed information about how to configure Network Connectivity Test (MTR), see Network Connectivity Test (MTR) .
