Pairs a working transponder or muxponder card/port with a protect transponder or muxponder card/port. The protect port must be on a different card than the working port and it must be the same card type as the working port. The working and protect port numbers must be the same, that is, Port 1 can only protect Port 1, Port 2 can only protect Port 2, etc.

Splitter

TXPP_MR_2.5G

MXPP_MR_2.5G

A splitter protection group is automatically created when a TXPP_MR_2.5G or MXPP_MR_2.5G card is installed. You can edit the splitter protection group name.


Step 3 Verify that PPMs are provisioned for the same payload and payload rate on the TXP and MXP cards where you will create the Y-cable protection group.

Display the TXP or MXP card in card view. Click the Provisioning > Pluggable Port Module tabs. Verify that a PPM is provisioned in the Pluggable Port Module area, and the payload type and rate is provisioned for it in the Selected PPM area.

The PPM payload and payload rate must be the same for both TXP or MXP cards. If they are not the same, for example, if the PPM payload and payload rate are not the same, you must either change the provisioned payload rate to match, or replace the PPM (SFP or XFP).

Step 4 In node view, click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 5 In the Protection Groups area, click Create.

Step 6 In the Create Protection Group dialog box, enter the following:

Name—Type a name for the protection group. The name can have up to 32 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) characters. Special characters are permitted. For TL1 compatibility, do not use question mark (?), backslash (\), or double quote (") characters.

Type—Choose Y Cable from the drop-down list.

Protect Port—From the drop-down list, choose the port that will be the standby or protection port to the active port. The list displays the available transponder or muxponder ports. If transponder or muxponder cards are not installed, no ports appear in the drop-down list.

After you choose the protect port, a list of available working ports appear in the Available Ports list, as shown in Figure 5-5. If no cards are available, no ports appear. If this occurs, you can not complete this task until you install the physical cards or preprovision the ONS 15454 slots using the "NTP-G29 Preprovision a Slot" procedure.

Figure 5-5 Creating a Y-Cable Protection Group

Step 7 From the Available Ports list, choose the port that will be protected by the port you selected in Protect Ports. Click the top arrow button to move the port to the Working Ports list.

Step 8 Complete the remaining fields:

Revertive—Check this check box if you want traffic to revert to the working port after failure conditions remain corrected for the amount of time entered in the Reversion Time field.

Reversion time—If Revertive is checked, select a reversion time from the drop-down list. The range is 0.5 to 12.0 minutes. The default is 5.0 minutes. Reversion time is the amount of time that will elapse before the traffic reverts to the working card. The reversion timer starts after conditions causing the switch are cleared.

Step 9 Click OK.

Step 10 Repeat this procedure for every protection indicated in the Cisco MetroPlanner Traffic Matrix.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Step 6 From the Alarm Type drop-down list, indicate whether the event will be triggered by the rising threshold, falling threshold, or both the rising and falling thresholds.

Step 7 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 8 Type in an appropriate number of seconds for the Sample Period.

Step 9 Type in the appropriate number of occurrences for the Rising Threshold.

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

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 seconds subsides and creates only 799 collisions in 15 seconds, 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-second 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 11 Click OK.

Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Description
Options

Termination Mode

Sets the mode of operation. Options that do not apply to a card do not display.

The MXP_2.5G_10G card is based on SONET/SDH multiplexing. The transparent mode terminates and rebuilds the B1 byte (as well as other bytes) of the incoming OC-48/STM-16 signal. The B2 byte is not touched.

The MXP_2.5G_10E card is fully transparent in transparent mode based on the OTN/ITU-T G.709 multiplexing scheme. It does not terminate the B1 byte or other bytes.

It encapsulates OC-48/STM-16 bytes into ODU1 first, then multiplexes them into an OTU2.

See the "Termination Modes" section for more information.

Number of received packets containing idle ordered sets.

8b10bNonIdleOrderedSets

Number of received packets containing non-idle ordered sets.

8b10bDataOrderedSets

Number of received packets containing data ordered sets.


Step 6 From the Alarm Type drop-down list, indicate whether the event will be triggered by the rising threshold, falling threshold, or both the rising and falling thresholds.

Step 7 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 8 Type in an appropriate number of seconds for the Sample Period.

Step 9 Type in the appropriate number of occurrences for the Rising Threshold.

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

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 seconds subsides and creates only 799 collisions in 15 seconds, 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-second 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 11 Click OK.

Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

This task changes the distance extension settings for MXP_MR_2.5G and MXPP_MR_2.5G muxponder cards. Distance extension should be enabled when the distance between the MXP_MR_2.5G/ MXPP_MR_2.5G source and destination cards is greater than 5 km and/or when the Fibre Channel switch buffer is set to 128 bytes or less.

Note Distance extension settings can be changed only if the facilities are out of service (OOS).



Note If distance extension is enabled for one MXP_MR_2.5G/MXPP_MR_2.5G card, it must be enabled on the MXP_MR_2.5G/MXPP_MR_2.5G card at the other end. A GFP-DE-MISMATCH alarm is raised if distance extension is enabled for a card at only one end.



Note The MXP_MR_2.5G/MXPP_MR_2.5G cards can operate with different Fibre Channel switch buffers at each end. However, the traffic flow will be unequal.



Note The distance extension parameters only apply to client ports (Ports 1 to 8) and not to the trunk ports (Port 9 for MXP_MR_2.5G card or Ports 9 and 10 for the MXPP_MR_2.5G card).



Step 1 In node view, double-click the MXP_MR_2.5G or MXPP_MR_2.5G card where you want to change the distance extension settings.

Enable Distance Extension

If checked, allows end-to-end distances up to 1600 km for FC1G and up to 800 km for FC2G through a flow control scheme based on the transparent-mode Generic Framing Protocol (GFP-T). GFP-T flow control enables the node to be part of a storage area network (SAN) with long-distance remote nodes. Cisco recommends that you enable distance extension when one or both of the following conditions exist:

The distance between the source and destination MXP_MR_2.5G/ MXPP_MR_2.5G cards is greater than 5 km.

The FC switch buffer at either end is less than 128 bytes.

If distance extension is enabled, the Fibre Channel switch must be set to Interop or Open Fabric mode, depending on the switch. By default, the MXP_MR_2.5G/ MXPP_MR_2.5G card interoperates with the Cisco Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) storage products.

Checked or unchecked

Auto Detect Credits

(Available only when distance extension is enabled). If checked, enables the node to detect the transmit credits from a remote node. Credits are used for link flow control and for Extended Link Protocol (ELP) login frames between Fibre Channel/FICON switch E ports. If distance extension is enabled, Cisco recommends that you enable Auto Detect Credits.

Checked or unchecked

Credits Available

If Auto Detect Credits is not enabled, sets the number of credits when an ELP login frame setting is missing or if the ELP login frame cannot be detected.

Numeric. Values are 2 through 256 in multiples of 2.

Autoadjust GFP Buffer Threshold

If checked, the threshold of the GFP buffer between two MXP_MR_2.5G or two MXPP_MR_2.5G cards is automatically adjusted. This guarantees the best utilization of the SONET/SDH transport by balancing bandwidth and latency.

Checked or unchecked

GFP Buffers Available

If Autoadjust GFP Buffer Threshold is not checked, sets the GFP buffer depth. For shorter SONET transport distances, Cisco recommends lower values to decrease latency. For longer SONET transport distances, Cisco recommends higher values to provide higher bandwidth.

Numeric. Possible values are 16 through 1200 in multiples of 16.

Table 5-47 MXP_MR_2.5G and MXPP_MR 2.5G Card 1G Ethernet or 1G FC/FICON
Variables 

Variable
Description

ifInOctets

Number of bytes received since the last counter reset.

rxTotalPkts

Total number of receive packets.

ifInDiscards

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.

ifInErrors

Total number of receive errors.

ifOutOctets

The total number of octets transmitted out of the interface, including framing characters.

txTotalPkts

Total number of transmitted packets.

ifOutDiscards

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

mediaIndStatsRxFramesTruncated

Total number of frames received that are less than 5 bytes. This value is a part of high-level data link control (HDLC) and GFP port statistics.

mediaIndStatsRxFramesTooLong

Number of received frames that exceed the maximum transmission unit (MTU). This value is part of HDLC and GFP port statistics.

mediaIndStatsRxFramesBadCRC

Number of receive data frames with payload cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors when HDLC framing is used.

mediaIndStatsTxFramesBadCRC

Number of transmitted data frames with payload CRC errors when HDLC framing is used.

fcStatsLinkRecoveries

Number of link recoveries.

fcStatsZeroTxCredits

Number of transmit attempts that failed because of unavailable credits.

8b10bInvalidOrderedSets

Number of 8b10b disparity violations on the Fibre Channel line side.

8b10bStatsEncodingDispErrors

Number of 8b10b disparity violations on the Fibre Channel line side.


Step 6 From the Alarm Type drop-down list, indicate whether the event will be triggered by the rising threshold, falling threshold, or both the rising and falling thresholds.

Step 7 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 8 Type in an appropriate number of seconds for the Sample Period.

Step 9 Type in the appropriate number of occurrences for the Rising Threshold.

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

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 seconds subsides and creates only 799 collisions in 15 seconds, 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-second 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 11 Click OK.

Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
