Monitor Performance


Performance monitoring (PM) parameters are used by service providers to gather, store, and report performance data for early detection of problems. For more PM information, details, and definitions refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-CL Troubleshooting Guide. This chapter explains how to enable and view performance monitoring statistics for the Cisco ONS 15310-CL.

Before You Begin

Before performing any of the following procedures investigate all alarms and clear any trouble conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-CL Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.

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

1. C64 Change the PM Display—Complete as needed.

2. C65 Monitor Electrical Performance—Complete as needed.

3. C66 Monitor Optical Performance—Complete as needed

4. C67 Monitor Ethernet Performance—Complete as needed.

5. C68 Create or Delete Ethernet RMON Thresholds—Complete as needed.


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.


NTP-C64 Change the PM Display

Purpose

This procedure enables you to change 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 5, "Create Circuits and VT Tunnels" and Chapter 9, "Change Port Settings."

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-C29 Log into CTC" task on page 15-49 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 15310-CL-CTX, CE-100T-8, or ML-100T-8 card, depending on 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:

DLP-C89 Refresh PM Counts for a Different Port, page 15-115

DLP-C90 Refresh Electrical or Optical PM Counts at Fifteen-Minute Intervals, page 15-116

DLP-C91 Refresh Electrical or Optical PM Counts at One-Day Intervals, page 15-117

DLP-C92 Monitor Near-End PM Counts, page 15-117

DLP-C93 Monitor Far-End PM Counts, page 15-118

DLP-C94 Reset Current PM Counts, page 15-119

DLP-C95 Clear Selected PM Counts, page 15-119

DLP-C96 Set Auto Refresh Interval for Displayed PM Counts, page 15-120

DLP-C97 Monitor PM Counts for Selected Signal Types, page 15-121

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-C65 Monitor Electrical Performance

Purpose

This procedure allows you to view node near-end or far-end performance on electrical port at specified time intervals to detect possible performance problems.

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 5, "Create Circuits and VT Tunnels" and Chapter 9, "Change Port Settings."

Step 4 Click the DS1 tab, DS3 tab or EC1 tab to view the desired PM parameters.

The PM parameter names appear on the left portion of the window in the Param column. The PM values appear on the right portion of the window in the Curr (current) and Prev-n (previous) columns. For PM parameter definitions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15310-CL Troubleshooting Guide.


Note To refresh, reset, or clear PM counts, see the "C64 Change the PM Display" procedure.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-C66 Monitor Optical Performance

Purpose

This procedure allows you to view node near-end or far-end performance on an optical card and port at specified time intervals to detect possible performance problems.

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 5, "Create Circuits and VT Tunnels" and Chapter 9, "Change Port Settings."

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-C98 Enable Pointer Justification Count Performance Monitoring" task on page 15-122 if you need to monitor clock synchronization.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-C99 Enable Intermediate-Path Performance Monitoring" task on page 15-124 if you need to monitor large amounts of STS traffic through intermediate nodes.

Step 4 Complete the "DLP-C100 View Optical OC-N PM Parameters" task on page 16-1 as needed.


Note To refresh, reset, or clear PM counts, see the "C64 Change the PM Display" procedure.
