Note If a single-rate PPM is installed, the PPM screen will autoprovision and no further steps are necessary.



Note The hardware device that plugs into a TXP or MXP card faceplate to provide a fiber interface to the card is called a Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP or XFP). In Cisco Transport Controller (CTC), SFPs and XFPs are called PPMs. SFPs/XFPs are hot-swappable input/output devices that plug into a TXP, MXP, or line card port to link the port with the fiber-optic network. For more information about SFPs and XFPs, refer "Hardware Specifications" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual, or the Installing GBIC, SFP and XFP Optics Modules in Cisco ONS 15454, 15454 SDH, 15327, 15600, and 15310-CL Platforms document available in the ONS 15454 production documentation website on www.cisco.com.

You can delete the last client port only if the trunk port is in a OOS-MA,DSBLD (ANSI) or Locked-enabled,disabled (ETSI) service state for all cards except the MXP_MR_2.5G, MXPP_MR_2.5G, MXP_MR_10DME_C, and MXP_MR_10DME_L cards. For more information about port states, refer to "DWDM Administrative and Service States" appendix in the Cisco DWDM Reference Manual.


a. In the Pluggable Port Modules area, click the PPM that you want to delete. The highlight changes to dark blue.

b. Click Delete. The Delete PPM dialog box appears.

c. Click Yes. The PPM provisioning is removed from the Pluggable Port Modules area and the Pluggable Ports area.

Step 4 Verify that the PPM provisioning is deleted:

In the TXP/MXP card view, CTC shows an empty port after the PPM is deleted.

If the SFP or XFP is physically present when you delete the PPM provisioning, CTC transitions to the deleted state, the ports (if any) are deleted, and the PPM is represented as a gray graphic in CTC. The SFP or XFP can be provisioned again in CTC, or the equipment can be removed, in which case the removal causes the graphic to disappear.

Step 5 If you need to remove the PPM hardware (the SFP or XFP), complete the "DLP-G64 Remove an SFP or XFP" task.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


NTP-G33 Create a Y-Cable Protection Group

Note For SONET or SDH payloads, Loss of Pointer Path (LOP-P) alarms can occur on a split signal if the ports are not in a Y-cable protection group.



Step 1 View the Cisco MetroPlanner Traffic Matrix (see Table 3-1) for your site. Verify the TXP or MXP cards that need Y-cable protection groups. (Cards requiring Y-cable protection are indicated with "Y-Cable" in the Traffic Matrix table Protection Type column. Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner DWDM Operations Guide for more information.)

Step 2 Verify that the TXP or MXP cards are installed according to the requirements specified in Table 3-3. Table 5-4 lists the protection types available in the ONS 15454 for DWDM client cards.

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 pluggable ports are provisioned for the same payload and payload rate on the TXP and MXP cards where you will create the Y-cable protection group:

a. Display the TXP or MXP card in card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Pluggable Port Module tabs.

c. Verify that a pluggable port is provisioned in the Pluggable Port Module area, and the payload type and rate is provisioned for it in the Pluggable Ports area. If they are not the same, for example, if the pluggable port and rate are not the same, you must either delete the provisioned rate and create a new rate to match using the "DLP-G273 Preprovision an SFP or XFP Slot" task or replace the pluggable port (SFP or XFP). using the "DLP-G64 Remove an SFP or XFP" task.

Step 4 In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf 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 "DLP-G353 Preprovision a Single Slot" procedure.

Figure 5-5 Creating a Y-Cable Protection Group

Step 7 From the Available Ports list, select 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.


Note The Bidirectional switching option is available only for SONET and SDH 1+1 protection groups. It is not available for Y-cable protection groups.


Step 9 Click OK.

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

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

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, the 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 6 From the Alarm Type drop-down list, indicate whether the event will be triggered by the rising threshold, the 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.

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.

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, the 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).

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