Techniques are provided to measure and analyze the “health” of a cloud-based professional media application. In particular, described are (1) a (media) probing infrastructure, based on a mix of virtual and physical measurement probes or collectors; and (2) a set of techniques that allow an orchestration system to control the probing infrastructure, to deploy and/or configure measurement probes, and/or to divert or mirror traffic to be “measured” through such probes. This approach not only uses virtual or physical probes, but also the automatic and policy-driven orchestration of such probing infrastructure and leverages Internet Protocol (IP) probing and measurement mechanisms for the media space.
