    Viewing the Port Utilization Table

    Use this procedure to view the port utilization table.

    Prerequisites:

    • Historical PMs must be enabled on the network elements you want to view.
    1. Click on the Utilization icon in the left sidebar.

      The port utilization table is displayed:

      By default, the utilization is sorted by the Max utilization.

      The icon next to a network element indicates a LAG port. Click on the icon to see the LAG members.

      The Provisioned column specifies the percent of link bandwidth allocated for provisioned services:

      • For an individual link, this is the ratio of the sum of the Committed Information Rates (CIRs) to the link rate, expressed as a percentage. The CIRs are summed across all services for that port.
      • For a LAG port, this is the ratio of the sum of the Committed Information Rates (CIRs) to the aggregate link rate, expressed as a percentage. The CIRs are summed across all services for that LAG port. The aggregate link rate is the sum of the link rates for all the active LAG members.

      Similar to the port utilization calculations, the CIR that is being summed is the higher of the ingress and egress CIRs for each service.

      For an individual link or LAG member, a row in the table is shown in red font if the Max utilization exceeds a specified percentage of the link rate. For a LAG port, a row is shown in red font if at least one of the following is true:

      • The Max utilization of the LAG port exceeds a specified percentage of the aggregate link rate. The aggregate link rate is the sum of the link rates of all LAG members.
      • One or more of its LAG members is shown in red font.

      To specify the percentage of link rate at which a row is shown in red font, see Changing the proNX Service Manager Dashboard Settings.

    2. Click the UNI or NNI tabs at the top to see the UNI or NNI entries respectively.
    3. To see more detailed information for a port, click on a row for that port.

      You can click on a row for a regular port, a LAG port, or a LAG member port.

      The Port Summary panel appears:

      Figure 1: Port Summary for a Regular Port or a LAG Member Port

      Port Summary for a Regular Port or a LAG Member Port

      Figure 2: Port Summary for a LAG Port

      The port summary shows a maximum utilization meter and a utilization graph for the selected port over the past 7 days.

      Note: To change the scale of the utilization graph, see Changing the scale in line and bar graphs.

      Note: To see information on the network element, click on the network element link. This brings up the network elements table, filtered for the network element. For information on viewing the network elements table, see Viewing the Network Elements Table.

      Tip: When navigating between the different tables, use the browser back button to return to the previous page.

    4. To see details for the selected port, click on the icon in the lower right corner of the pane.

      The Port Details modal panel appears.

      Click anywhere outside the modal panel to close the modal panel.

    5. To sort, filter, copy, print, or save table entries, see Working with tables.
