Monitor Performance


This chapter explains how to enable and view performance monitoring statistics for the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH. 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.

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. D257 Change the PM Display—Complete as needed to change the displayed PM counts.

2. D195 Monitor Electrical Performance—Complete as needed to monitor electrical performance.

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

4. D254 Monitor STM-N Performance—Complete as needed to monitor optical (STM-N) performance.

5. D255 Monitor Multirate Transport Performance—Complete as needed to monitor multirate transport performance.

6. D256 Monitor DWDM Performance—Complete as needed to monitor DWDM 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.


NTP-D257 Change the PM Display

Purpose

This procedure changes the display of PM counts by selecting drop-down menu or radio button options in the Performance window.

Tools/Equipment

None

Prerequisite Procedures

Before you monitor performance, be sure you have created the appropriate circuits and provisioned the card according to your specifications. For more information, see Chapter 8, "Create Circuits and Low-Order Tunnels" and Chapter 13, "Change Card Settings."

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

Step 2 In node view, double-click the electrical, Ethernet, optical (STM-N), multirate transport, or DWDM card where you want to view PM counts. The card view appears.

Step 3 As needed, use the following tasks to change the display of PM counts:

D124 Refresh PM Counts at 15-Minute Intervals

D125 Refresh PM Counts at One-Day Intervals

D126 View Near-End PM Counts

D127 View Far-End PM Counts

D128 View PM Counts for a Selected Signal

D129 Reset Current PM Counts

D130 Clear Selected PM Counts

D260 Set Auto-Refresh Interval for Displayed PM Counts

D261 Refresh PM Counts for a Different Port

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


DLP-D124 Refresh PM Counts at 15-Minute Intervals

Step 1 In node view, double-click the card where you want to view PM counts. The card view appears.

Step 2 Click the Performance tab.

Step 3 Click the 15 min radio button.

Step 4 Click Refresh. Performance monitoring parameters appear 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.


Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D125 Refresh PM Counts at One-Day Intervals

Step 1 In node view, double-click the card where you want to view PM counts. The card view appears.

Step 2 Click the Performance tab.

Step 3 Click the 1 day radio button.

Step 4 Click Refresh. Performance monitoring appears in 1-day intervals synchronized with the time of day.

Step 5 View the Curr column to find PM counts for the current 1-day 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 1-day 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 1-day intervals.


Note If a complete count over a 1-day interval is not possible, the value appears with a yellow background. An incomplete or incorrect count can be caused by monitoring for less than 24 hours 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 1-day interval appears with a white background.
