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, and set thresholds and to report performance data for early detection of problems. For more PM information, details, and definitions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.

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. D289 Create and Delete Ethernet RMON Thresholds—Complete as needed to monitor Ethernet performance.

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

6. D301 Monitor FC_MR-4 Performance—Complete as needed to monitor FC_MR-4 performance.

7. D302 Create or Delete FC_MR-4 RMON Thresholds—Complete as needed to monitor FC_MR-4 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 list 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 6 "Create Circuits and Low-Order Tunnels" and Chapter 10 "Change Card Settings."

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task 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 dense wavelength division multiplexing (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

D259 Refresh Ethernet PM Counts at a Different Time Interval

D126 View Near-End PM Counts

D127 View Far-End PM Counts

D458 Monitor PM Counts for a Selected Signal

D129 Reset Current PM Counts

D459 Clear Selected PM Counts

D457 Refresh E-Series and G-Series Ethernet 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.


NTP-D195 Monitor Electrical Performance

Purpose

This procedure enables you to view node near-end or far-end performance during selected time intervals on an electrical card and port 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 6 "Create Circuits and Low-Order Tunnels" and Chapter 10 "Change Card Settings."

Step 4 View the PM parameter names that appear on the left portion of the window in the Param column. The PM parameter 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 "Performance Monitoring" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

To refresh, reset, or clear PM counts, see the "NTP-D257 Change the PM Display" procedure.
