service path-monitor policy <name> requires type ping jitter <policy-settings>

Sets the jitter attribute for a ping policy. Configure this to add the jitter metric to the acceptable round-trip time for ping-based probes.

Use the set form of this command to add the jitter attribute to a ping path monitor policy.

Use the delete form of this command to delete the jitter attribute from a ping path monitor policy.

policy <name>
The alphanumeric name of the policy.
jitter <policy settings>

The maximum variation in round-trip packet latency.

The <policy-settings> variable refers to keyword parameters; one is mandatory and the rest are optional. For the mandatory parameter, if you do not specify a threshold, an error is triggered when you commit. In contrast, if you do not specify an optional parameter, its default applies.

Note: Make each keyword specification a unique command; specify one keyword per iteration.
  • ... jitter threshold <ms>
  • ... jitter tolerance <ms>
  • ... jitter robustness <integer>
  • threshold (mandatory) Range: 1 to 1000 milliseconds
  • tolerance (optional) Range: 0 to 1000 milliseconds Default: 5
  • robustness (optional) Range: 1 to 10 Default 1
