ICND2 – IP SLA Questions

Question 1


The ICMP Echo operation measures end-to-end response time between a Cisco router and any devices using IP. Response time is computed by measuring the time taken between sending an ICMP Echo request message to the destination and receiving an ICMP Echo reply. Many customers use IP SLAs ICMP-based operations, in-house ping testing, or ping-based dedicated probes for response time measurements.

    for Q2:
    An IP LSA ICMP-Echo operation can measure 2 facts:
    1. success/failure of the Echo
    2. the RTT

    RTT(round trip time) measures the DELAY from sending the ICMP Echo request until receiving the matching ICMP Echo reply.

    that’s all. only two questions

    What IP SLA ICMP Echo measures?
    A. Packet loss
    B. Congestion
    C. Hop-by-hop “something”
    Dumps says a

    QUESTION 628
    Which function does IP SLA ICMP ECHO operation perform to assist with troubleshooting?
    A. one way jitter measurement
    B. packet-loss detection
    C. hop-by-hop response time
    D. congestion detection

    dumps says c

    Cisco says: An ICMP Path Echo operation measures end-to-end and hop-by-hop response time between a Cisco device and other devices using IP

    Is the answer in first question wrong?

    Question 2, Answer is not B because:

    Cisco clearly states that:
    ICMP Echo –> Measures round-trip delay for the full path.

    One side Delay = RRT/2
