Custom performance classes for Internet traffic

According to what i have read, we can do Custom performance classes and apply for VPN Traffic under SD-WAN Policies. (https://documentation.meraki.com/MX/Firewall_and_Traffic_Shaping/MX_Load_Balancing_and_Flow_Preferen...)

 

Do you know if there is a way to do the same on Internet traffic when selecting Uplinks?

Or maybe in Beta versions? 

 

This would be useful to identity ISP issues or when a cloud application works better in another ISP than the other.

Re: Custom performance classes for Internet traffic

It can't be done for Internet traffic.

 

Performance classes over AutoVPN are done by generating articifial test traffic, which is easy to do when you have an MX at each end to generate and measure the data.

 

With an Internet circuit there is nothing to send simulated data to and get a measurement.  Consequently it can not be done.

Re: Custom performance classes for Internet traffic

If you had non critical VPN traffic over WAN2 (ADSL) and a performance class to fail this over to WAN1 (MPLS) should it hit 5%packet loss. 

 

Would your internet traffic continue to go out of WAN2?

 

  1. Active/Active VPN with no default route selected on hubs. 
  2. No internet flow preferences. 
  3. Primary uplink set to WAN2.

Re: Custom performance classes for Internet traffic

Sorry to necro this thread, but why can the same test they use for uplink historical data not be used to do this? Meraki claims to have the latency and packet loss on every MX uplink page. Perhaps you cannot determine jitter, but that is not as important as making sure the site fails to backup on the internet side and not just VPN when there is 20% packet loss on WAN 1.
