Viewing Real-time Ethernet PMs and SLAs

 

Use this procedure to enable and view real-time Ethernet PMs and SLAs on BTI7000 Series, BTI700 Series, and BTI800 Series network elements.

PSM supports the following Layer 2 Ethernet PMs for UNIs:

  1. To enable real-time PMs or SLAs, right-click on an Ethernet service in the tree view or in an Ethernet topology view, and choose one of the following:
    • Enable realtime PMs>Detailed

    • Enable realtime PMs>Simple

    • Enable realtime PMs>SLA

    • Enable realtime PMs>Port Utilization

    • Enable realtime PMs>Bandwidth Utilization

    Real-time PM/SLA collection for the Ethernet service is started, and for each PM/SLA collection point in the service, a PM data widget is displayed with the current PMs/SLAs for that collection point (the statistics displayed for a given collection point are the total statistics for that point, and not just the totals for the selected service). Additionally, a graphical view is provided at the bottom of the screen.

    Note

    For SLA PMs, an SLA pair needs to have been created on the service view and applied.

  2. Click the PM data widget title bar to show or hide the PM data.

    PM/SLA absolute values (and their change from the previous collection) are shown.

  4. To change the scale of the graphs, highlight the desired area by left-clicking and dragging the mouse to highlight the area of focus, and release. The scale for both the domain (horizontal) axis and the range (vertical) axis can be changed.

    Repeat until the desired magnification is achieved.

    Note

    You can also change the scales by right-clicking on a graph, and selecting Zoom In>Range Axis, Zoom Out>Range Axis, Zoom In>Domain Axis, and Zoom Out>Domain Axis. This changes the respective scales while keeping the center of the range and/or domain as the area of focus.

  5. To turn off real-time PMs, right-click in the Ethernet topology window and choose Disable Realtime PMs.
