Monitor Performance


Performance monitoring (PM) parameters are used by service providers to gather, store, threshold, and report performance data for early detection of problems. For more PM information, details, and definitions refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual. This chapter explains how to enable and view performance monitoring statistics for the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH.

Before You Begin

Before performing any of the following procedures, investigate all alarms and clear any trouble conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.

This section lists the chapter procedures (NTPs). Turn to a procedure for applicable tasks (DLPs).

1. D73 Enable Performance Monitoring—Complete as needed.

2. D195 Monitor Electrical or Optical Performance—Complete this procedure as needed to monitor electrical or optical performance.

3. D198 Monitor Ethernet Performance—Complete this procedure as needed to monitor Ethernet performance.


Note For additional information regarding PM parameters, refer to ITU G.826, Telcordia GR-820-CORE, Telcordia GR-499-CORE, and Telcordia GR-253-CORE.

Step 1 Log into CTC at the node that you want to monitor. See the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task on page 3-23 for instructions. If you are already logged in, proceed to Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-D121 Enable Pointer Justification Count Performance Monitoring" task if you need to monitor clock synchronization.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-D122 Enable Intermediate Path Performance Monitoring" task if you need to monitor large amounts of VC4 traffic through intermediate nodes.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


DLP-D121 Enable Pointer Justification Count Performance Monitoring

Purpose

This task enables pointer justification counts, which provide a way to align the phase variations in VC4 payloads and to monitor the clock synchronization between nodes. A consistent, large pointer justification count indicates clock synchronization problems between nodes.

Step 3 Click the 15 min radio button.

Step 4 Click the Refresh button. Performance monitoring parameters display in 15-minute intervals synchronized with the time of day.

Step 5 View the Curr column to find PM counts for the current 15-minute interval.

Each monitored performance parameter has corresponding threshold values for the current time period. If the value of the counter exceeds the threshold value for a particular 15-minute interval, a threshold crossing alert (TCA) is raised. The number represents the counter value for each specific performance monitoring parameter.

Step 6 View the Prev-n columns to find PM counts for the previous 15-minute intervals.


Note If a complete 15-minute interval count is not possible, the value appears with a yellow background. An incomplete or incorrect count can be caused by monitoring for less than 15 minutes after the counter started, changing node timing settings, changing the time zone settings, replacing a card, resetting a card, or changing port states. When the problem is corrected, the subsequent 15-minute interval appears with a white background.
