Monitor Performance


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

Before You Begin

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

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

1. A73 Enable Performance Monitoring—Complete as needed.

2. A197 Monitor Electrical or Optical Performance—Complete this procedure as needed to monitor electrical or optical performance.

3. A198 Monitor Ethernet Performance—Complete this procedure as needed to monitor Ethernet performance.


Note For additional information regarding PM parameters, refer to the Digital transmission surveillance section in Telcordia's GR-1230-CORE, GR-820-CORE, GR-499-CORE, and GR-253-CORE documents, and in the ANSI document entitled Digital Hierarchy - Layer 1 In-Service Digital Transmission Performance Monitoring.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-A121 Enable Pointer Justification Count Performance Monitoring" task if you need to monitor clock synchronization.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-A122 Enable Intermediate Path Performance Monitoring" task if you need to monitor large amounts of STS traffic through intermediate nodes.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


DLP-A121 Enable Pointer Justification Count Performance Monitoring

Purpose

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

Step 1 In node view, double-click the electrical or optical (OC-N) card of choices. The card view appears.

Step 2 Click the Performance tab.

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 by changing port states. When the problem is corrected, the subsequent 15-minute interval appears with a white background.

All statistics on port x: Clearing all statistics on port x erases from the card and the window display all PM counts associated with all combinations of the statistics on the selected port. This means all time intervals, directions, and signal type counts are erased from the card and the window display.

All statistics in current view: Clearing all statistics in the current view erases from the card and the window display all PM counts for all ports.

Step 5 From the Clear Statistics menu, click Yes to clear the selected statistics.
