    Configuring Circuit Startup Parameters for CTP Bundles (CTPView)

    This topic describes how to configure advanced options that are related to circuit startup. Set these parameters to the same values on the local and remote CTP devices.

    Before you begin:

    • Log in to the CTPView software at least at the Net_Admin level.
    • Connect the CTPView server to the CTP device for which you want to configure bundles.

    To configure circuit startup parameters for CTP bundles using CTPView:

    1. In the side pane, select Bundle > Configuration.
    2. Run your mouse over the Display and Select an Existing Bundle bar.
    3. In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to modify.
    4. Under Bundle Options, select Advanced Options Show to display advanced parameters and configure the parameters as described in Table 1.
    5. Click Click to Submit Bundle AND Port Changes.

    Table 1: CTP Bundle Advanced Options Parameter Settings for Circuit Startup in CTPView

    FieldFunctionYour Action

    OAM Packet Spacing

    Specifies the number of OAM packets per second that the circuit sends to the remote CTP device.

    Enter a number from 1 through 255.

    OAM Packets for Sync

    Specifies the number of OAM packets that the circuit must receive before the state moves from no synchronization to in synchronization.

    Enter a number from 1 through 255.

    OAM Packets for Sync Loss

    Specifies the number of received OAM packets that the CTP device misses before the state of the circuit moves from in synchronization to no synchronization.

    Enter a number from 1 through 255.

    Consecutive Pkt Loss To Starvation

    Specifies how many consecutive circuit packets the IP network must drop before the CTP device restarts the circuit.

    We recommend that you set the parameter to a larger value when the IP network uses packet-encrypting devices. These devices cause momentary interruption in packet flows when encryption keys are updated.

    Enter a number from 1 through 64.

    InSync Pkts After Starvation

    Specifies the number of in-sequence packets the CTP device must receive after a starvation before the circuit transitions from in-sync to running.

    Enter a number from 1 through 64.
