This document discusses how long a BPX Broadband Controller Card (BCC)
has been active.
There are no specific requirements for this document.

The most accurate method is to locate the
switchcc in the event log, or examine a
StrataView Plus (SV+) log, if available. If these are not available, there is a
service-level command that you can use to calculate how long the BCC has been
The arbstats command displays information
about the arbiter in the BCC. While it is possible to clear these statistics
(with the arbstats c command), most nodes have never
had their arbiter statistics cleared unless a serious arbiter problem was
suspected at some time.
The Sample count field displays the
number of seconds that the arbiter has been operational.

To calculate the number of days, divide the count by 86400 seconds per
To calculate the number hours, divide the count by 3600 seconds per
Thus, the example BCC has been operational for ~1.017 days (~24.399
