IPSLA Y1731 On-Demand and Concurrent Operations

This module describes how to configure the IPSLA Y1731 SLM Feature Enhancements feature for enabling real-time Ethernet service troubleshooting for users without configuration privileges. This feature supports on-demand Synthetic Loss Measurement (SLM) operations that can be run by issuing a single command in privileged EXEC mode.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Prerequisites for ITU-T Y.1731 Operations

IEEE-compliant Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) must be configured and enabled for Y.1731 performance monitoring to function.

Restrictions for IP SLAs Y.1731 On-Demand Operations

  • SNMP is not supported for reporting threshold events or collecting performance statistics for on-demand operations.
  • On-demand operation statistics are not stored and are not supported by the statistic history and aggregation functions.

Information About IP SLAs Y.1731 On-Demand and Concurrent Operations

IPSLA Y1731 SLM Feature Enhancements

On-demand IP SLAs Synthetic Loss Measurement (SLM) operations, in the IPSLA Y1731 SLM Feature Enhancements feature, enable users without configuration access to perform real-time troubleshooting of Ethernet services. There are two operational modes for on-demand operations: direct mode that creates and runs an operation immediately and referenced mode that starts and runs a previously configured operation.
  • In the direct mode, a single command can be used to create multiple pseudo operations for a range of class of service (CoS) values to be run, in the background, immediately. A single command in privileged EXEC mode can be used to specify frame size, interval, frequency, and duration for the direct on-demand operation. Direct on-demand operations start and run immediately after the command is issued.
  • In the referenced mode, you can start one or more already-configured operations for different destinations, or for the same destination, with different CoS values. Issuing the privileged EXEC command creates a pseudo version of a proactive operation that starts and runs in the background, even while the proactive operation is running.
  • Once an on-demand operation is completed, statistical output is displayed on the console. On-demand operation statistics are not stored and are not supported by the statistic history and aggregation functions.
  • After an on-demand operation is completed, and the statistics handled, the direct and referenced on-demand operation is deleted. The proactive operations are not deleted and continue to be available to be run in referenced mode, again.

A concurrent operation consists of a group of operations, all configured with the same operation ID number, that run concurrently. Concurrent operations are supported for a given Ethernet Virtual Circuit (EVC), CoS, and remote Maintenance End Point (MEP) combination, or for multiple MEPs for a given multipoint EVC, for delay or loss measurements. A new keyword was added to the appropriate commands to specify that concurrent Ethernet frame Delay Measurement (ETH-DM) synthetic frames are sent during the operation.

The IPSLA Y.1731 SLM Feature Enhancements feature also supports burst mode for concurrent operations, one-way dual-ended, and single-ended delay and delay variation operations, as well as for single-ended loss operations. A new keyword was added to the appropriate commands to support bursts of PDU transmission during an aggregation interval. The maximum number of services monitored is 50 every 30 minutes, with an average of 25 services every 2 hours.

How to Configure IP SLAs Y.1731 On-Demand and Concurrent Operations

Configuring a Direct On-Demand Operation on a Sender MEP

Before You Begin

Class of Service (CoS)-level monitoring must be enabled on MEPs associated to the Ethernet frame loss operation by using the monitor loss counter command on the devices at both ends of the operation. See the Cisco IOS Carrier Ethernet Command Reference for command information. See the “Configuration Examples for IP SLAs Metro-Ethernet 3.0 (ITU-T Y.1731) Operations” section for configuration information.


Note


The Cisco IOS Y.1731 implementation allows monitoring of frame loss on an EVC regardless of the CoS value (any CoS or aggregate CoS cases). See the “Configuration Examples for IP SLAs Metro-Ethernet 3.0 (ITU-T Y.1731) Operations” section for configuration information.


SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    ip sla on-demand ethernet {DMMv1 | SLM} domain domain-name {evc evc-id | vlan vlan-id} {mpid target-mp-id | mac-address target-address} cos cos {source {mpid source-mp-id | mac-address source-address}} {continuous [interval milliseconds] | burst [interval milliseconds] [number number-of-frames] [frequency seconds]} [size bytes] aggregation seconds {duration seconds | max number-of-packets}


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
              
     
    Enables privileged EXEC mode.
    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2ip sla on-demand ethernet {DMMv1 | SLM} domain domain-name {evc evc-id | vlan vlan-id} {mpid target-mp-id | mac-address target-address} cos cos {source {mpid source-mp-id | mac-address source-address}} {continuous [interval milliseconds] | burst [interval milliseconds] [number number-of-frames] [frequency seconds]} [size bytes] aggregation seconds {duration seconds | max number-of-packets}


    Example:
    Device# ip sla on-demand ethernet SLM domain xxx vlan 12 mpid 34 cos 4 source mpid 23 continuous aggregation 10 duration 60 
     
    Creates and runs an on-demand operation in direct mode.
    • To create and run concurrent on-demand operations, configure this command using the DMMv1 keyword.
    • Statistical output is posted on the console after the operation is finished.
    • Repeat this step for each on-demand operation to be run.
    • After an on-demand operation is finished and the statistics handled, the operation is deleted.
     

    Configuring a Referenced On-Demand Operation on a Sender MEP


    Note


    After an on-demand operation is finished and the statistics handled, the on-demand version of the operation is deleted.


    Before You Begin
    • Single-ended and concurrent Ethernet delay, or delay variation, and frame loss operations to be referenced must be configured. See the “Configuring IP SLAs Metro-Ethernet 3.0 (ITU-T Y.1731) Operations” module of the IP SLAs Configuration Guide.
