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 definition, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.

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 as necessary.

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

1. A253 Change the PM Display—Complete as needed to change the displayed PM counts.

2. A122 Monitor Electrical Performance—Complete as needed to monitor electrical performance.

3. A198 Monitor Ethernet Performance—Complete as needed to monitor Ethernet performance.

4. A279 Create or Delete Ethernet RMON Thresholds—Complete as needed to create or delete Ethernet remote monitoring (RMON) thresholds.

5. A250 Monitor OC-N Performance—Complete as needed to monitor optical (OC-N) performance.

6. A285 Monitor FC_MR-4 Performance—Complete as needed to monitor FC_MR-4 performance.

7. A289 Create or Delete FC_MR-4 RMON Thresholds—Complete as needed to create or delete FC_MR-4 RMON thresholds.


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


NTP-A253 Change the PM Display

Purpose

This procedure enables you to change 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 VT Tunnels" and Chapter 11 "Change Node Settings."

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-A60 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, or optical (OC-N) cards 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:

A124 Refresh PM Counts at 15-Minute Intervals

A125 Refresh PM Counts at One-Day Intervals

A347 Refresh E-Series and G-Series Ethernet PM Counts

A126 View Near-End PM Counts

A127 View Far-End PM Counts

A348 Monitor PM Counts for a Selected Signal

A129 Reset Current PM Counts

A349 Clear Selected PM Counts

A260 Set Auto-Refresh Interval for Displayed PM Counts

A259 Refresh Ethernet PM Counts at a Different Time Interval

A261 Refresh PM Counts for a Different Port

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-A122 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.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-A60 Log into CTC" task at the node that you want to monitor. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 3.

Step 2 For DS3XM-12 cards complete the following procedures:

A394 View DS-N/SONET PM Parameters for the DS3XM-12 Card

A395 View BFDL PM Parameters for the DS3XM-12 Card

For EC-1 cards, complete the "DLP-A122 Enable/Disable Intermediate Path Performance Monitoring" task as needed to enable or disable monitoring of STS traffic through intermediate nodes.

For all other electrical cards continue with Step 3.

Step 3 In node view, double-click the electrical card where you want to view PM counts. The card view appears.

Step 4 Click the Performance tab (Figure 9-1).

Step 5 In the signal type drop-down lists, click one of the following options:

DSn (card port)

VTn (VT path)

STSn (STS within the VT path)

Step 6 Click Refresh.

Step 7 View the PM parameter names that appear in the Param column. The PM parameter values appear in the Curr (current) and Prev-n (previous) columns. For PM parameter definitions, refer to the "Performance Monitoring" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.

To refresh, reset, or clear PM counts, see the "NTP-A253 Change the PM Display" procedure.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-A198 Monitor Ethernet Performance

Purpose

This procedure enables you to view node transmit and receive performance during selected time intervals on an Ethernet card and port to detect possible performance problems.
