Understanding Y.1731 Performance Monitoring

When service providers sell connectivity services to a subscriber, a Service Level Agreement (SLA) is reached between the buyer and seller of the service. The SLA defines the attributes offered by a provider and serves as a legal obligation on the service provider. As the level of performance required by subscribers increases, service providers need to monitor the performance parameters being offered. To capture the needs of the service providers, organizations have defined various standards such as IEEE 802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731 that define the methods and frame formats used to measure performance parameters.

Y.1731 Performance Monitoring (PM) provides a standard ethernet PM function that includes measurement of ethernet frame delay, frame delay variation, frame loss, and frame throughput measurements specified by the ITU-T Y-1731 standard and interpreted by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) standards group. As per recommendations, the ME 3400 switches should be able to send, receive and process PM frames in intervals of 1000ms (1000 frames per second) with the maximum recommended transmission period being 1000ms (1000 frames per second) for any given service.

To measure SLA parameters such as frame delay or frame delay variation, a small number of synthetic frames are transmitted along with the service to the end point of the maintenance region, where the Maintenance End Point (MEP) responds to the synthetic frame. For a function such as connectivity fault management, the messages are sent less frequently, while performance monitoring frames are sent more frequently.

Figure 45-1 illustrates Maintenance Entities (ME) and Maintenance End Points (MEP) typically involved in a point-to-point metro ethernet deployment for the Y.1731 standard.

Frame Loss Ratio and Availability

Connectivity

The first step to performance monitoring is verifying the connectivity. Continuity check messages (CCM) are best suited for connectivity verification. Since they are optimized for fault recovery operation, they are not usually accepted as a component of an SLA due to the timescale difference between SLA and fault recovery. Instead, Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) and Continuity Check Database (CCDB) are used to verify connectivity. For more information on CFM see, Configuring Ethernet OAM, CFM, and E-LMI.

Frame Delay and Frame Delay Variation

Ethernet frame delay measurement (ETH-DM) is used for on-demand ethernet Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) to measure frame delay and frame delay variation.

Ethernet frame delay and frame delay variation are measured by sending periodic frames with ETH-DM information to the peer MEP and receiving frames with ETH-DM information from the peer MEP. During the interval, each MEP measures the frame delay and frame delay variation.

ETH-DM also collects information, such as worst and best case delays, average delay, and average delay variation. It provides a runtime display of delay statistics during a two-way delay measurement. ETH-DM records the last 100 samples collected per remote Maintenance End Point (MEP) or per CFM session.

These are the two methods of delay measurement, as defined by the ITU-T Y.1731 standard: One-way ETH-DM and Two-way ETH-DM. However, only Two-way ETH-DM is supported.

Two-way ETH-DM:

Each MEP transmits frames with ETH-DM request information to its peer MEP and receives frames with ETH-DM reply information from its peer MEP. Two way frame delay and frame delay variation are measured using delay measurement message (DMM) and delay measurement reply (DMR) frames.

Synthetic Loss Measurement

Synthetic Loss Measurement (ETH-SLM) is a mechanism to measure frame loss using synthetic frames, rather than data traffic. A number of synthetic frames are sent and received, and the number that are lost is calculated between a pair of MEPs. This number is used as a statistical sample to approximate the frame loss ratio of data traffic.

ETH-SLM transmits synthetic frames with ETH-SLM information to a peer MEP and similarly receives synthetic frames with ETH-SLM information from the peer MEP. Each MEP performs frame loss measurements which contribute to unavailable time.

A near-end frame loss refers to frame loss associated with ingress data frames. Far-end frame loss refers to frame loss associated with egress data frames. Both near-end and far-end frame loss measurements contribute to near-end severely errored seconds and far end severely errored seconds which together contribute to unavailable time.

ETH-SLM is measured using SLM and SLR frames. Although ITU-T Y.1731 defines two methods of frame loss measure, only Single-ended ETH-SLM is supported.

With Single-ended ETH-SLM, each MEP transmits frames with the ETH-SLM request information to its peer MEP and receives frames with ETH-SLM reply information from its peer MEP to complete synthetic loss measurements.

Supported Interfaces

Y.1731 PM supports these interfaces:

SLM and DMM on Switchport on OFM

SLM and DMM on Switchport on IFM

SLM and DMM on PC Switchport OFM

Restrictions and Usage Guidelines

Follow these restrictions and usage guidelines when you configure Y.1731 PM on the switch:

Y.1731 PM is not supported on these interfaces:

Y.1731 PM is not supported on customer VLANs (C-VLANs). PM is only supported on service provider VLANs (S-VLANs).

PM does not support SNMP, although CLI and system-logging is supported.

Frame throughput measurements are not supported.

Clock synchronization is not mandatory for Two-way delay measurement.

For PM support on port-channels. adding or deleting a member link renders the session invalid.

SLM supports the following modes for sending frames:

Continues Mode

Burst Mode

SLM supports frame interval of 1 sec and 100 ms.

Troubleshooting

These troubleshooting scenarios apply to the Y.1731 performance monitoring configurations:

Problem
Solution

When the IP SLA sessions do not come up.

Use the debug commands:

debug ethernet cfm pm events [session <session id>]

debug ethernet cfm pm error [session <session id>]

debug ethernet cfm pm diagnostic

debug ethernet cfm pm ipc [session <session id>]

debug ethernet cfm pm packet [session <session id>]
