Software Monitoring Points

Note that Native Monitoring Points (NMPs) and Container-based Monitoring Points (CMPs) can be deployed with different capabilities:

  • An n10 is an NMP with a “Workstation (n10)” license applied.
  • An n35 is a NMP with a “Strategic (m50/c50) / Legacy Small Office” license applied.
  • A c50 is a CMP with a “Strategic (m50/c50) / Legacy Small Office” license applied.
  • A cpe5 is a CMP with a “Customer Premises Equipment (cpe5)” license applied.
  • A cpe40 is a CMP with a “Customer Premises Equipment (cpe40)” license applied.

Footnotes:
1. For the CMP, the configuration of network features normally done on the Monitoring Point are done as part of the container configuration in Docker. See the Docker documentation for details.
2. The Azure D1 v2 VM instance supports a network bandwidth of up to 750Mbps.
3. The v35 (KVM) can support up to four ports. Up to three of these can be 10Gbps. Only Intel 82599 and X500 series 10Gbps NICs are supported.
4. The VLAN is configured on the Docker host.
5. IPv6 is not supported when using AKS orchestration.
