Monitor Performance


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


Note Unless otherwise specified, "ONS 15454" refers to both ANSI and ETSI shelf assemblies.


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 or Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.

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

1. G73 Change the PM Display—Complete as needed to change the displayed PM counts.

2. G74 Monitor DWDM Card Performance—Complete as needed to monitor dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) performance.

3. G75 Monitor Transponder and Muxponder Performance—Complete as needed to monitor transponder (TXP) and muxponder (MXP) card performance.


Note For additional information regarding PM parameters, refer to Telcordia's GR-1230-CORE, GR-499-CORE, and GR-253-CORE documents and GR-820-CORE document titled Generic Digital Transmission Surveillance, and in the ANSI T1.231 document entitled Digital Hierarchy - Layer 1 In-Service Digital Transmission Performance Monitoring.

Step 2 Click the Performance tab.

Step 3 Click to any of the tabs, subtabs, and ports (found in the Ports: drop-down list where available) for that card where you want to change the PM count interval.


Note You cannot change the PM count interval on the TXP or MXP cards' Current Values tab.


Step 4 Click the 15 min radio button.

Step 5 Click Refresh. Performance monitoring parameters appear in 15-minute intervals synchronized with the time of day.

Step 6 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 7 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 the node timing settings, changing the time zone settings, replacing a card, resetting a card, or changing port service states. When the problem is corrected, the subsequent 15-minute interval appears with a white background.

Variable
Definition

iflnOctets

Total number of octets received on the interface, including framing octets

ifInDiscards

The number of inbound packets that were chosen to be discarded even though no errors had been detected to prevent their being deliverable to a higher-layer protocol

iflnErrors

Number of inbound packets discarded because they contain errors

ifOutOctets

Total number of transmitted octets, including framing packets

ifOutDiscards

The number of outbound packets that were chosen to be discarded even though no errors had been detected to prevent their being transmitted

txTotalPkts

Total number of transmit packets

rxTotalPkts

Total number of receive packets

mediaIndStatsRxFramesTooLong

Number of packets transmitted that are greater than 1548 bytes

mediaIndStatsRxFramesTruncated

Total number of frames received that are less than 5 bytes

mediaIndStatsRxFramesBadCRC

Total number of frames received with a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) error

mediaIndStatsTxFramesBadCRC

Total number of frames transmitted with a CRC error

8b10bInvalidOrderedSets

Total number of ordered sets not complaint to GE/FC (Gigabit Ethernet/Fibre Channel) standard

8b10bStatsEncodingDispErrors

Total number of code groups that violate GE/FC disparity errors


Step 7 From the Alarm Type drop-down list, indicate whether the rising threshold, falling threshold, or both the rising and falling thresholds will trigger the event.

Step 8 From the Sample Type drop-down list, choose either Relative or Absolute. Relative restricts the threshold to use the number of occurrences in the user-set sample period. Absolute sets the threshold to use the total number of occurrences, regardless of time period.

Step 9 Enter the appropriate number of seconds for the Sample Period.

Step 10 Enter the appropriate number of occurrences for the Rising Threshold.


Note For a rising type of alarm, the measured value must move from below the falling threshold to above the rising threshold. For example, if a network is running below a rising threshold of 1000 collisions every 15 seconds and a problem causes 1001 collisions in 15 seconds, the excess occurrences trigger an alarm.


Step 11 Enter the appropriate number of occurrences in the Falling Threshold field. In most cases, a falling threshold is set lower than the rising threshold.


Note A falling threshold is the counterpart to a rising threshold. When the number of occurrences is above the rising threshold and then drops below a falling threshold, it resets the rising threshold. For example, when the network problem that caused 1001 collisions in 15 minutes subsides and creates only 799 collisions in 15 minutes, occurrences fall below a falling threshold of 800 collisions. This resets the rising threshold so that if network collisions again spike over a 1000 per 15-minute period, an event again triggers when the rising threshold is crossed. An event is triggered only the first time a rising threshold is exceeded (otherwise, a single network problem might cause a rising threshold to be exceeded multiple times and cause a flood of events).


Step 12 Click OK to complete the procedure.
