      comparison to SLA early indications of under-provisioning signs of poor management by ISP/WAN provider identification of hidden performance issues as well as others. I do not have a particular reference handy for you unfortunately.

Some form of network or device management system would be appropriate to support these tasks. Typically each system has its own framework that defines the various deployment and operational procedures. The framework itself requires regular maintenance to ensure it can accommodate your needs.

So unless you were planning on doing these tasks manually (OK for smaller WANs), the procedures that you can apply may well be defined by the choice of management system and the requirements of your network.
