    Configuring Adaptive Clocking for SAToP Bundles (CTP Menu)

    If you specify that the SAToP bundle uses the CTP as the clock source with the CTP as the adaptive end, you can modify attributes that affect the adaptive clocking algorithm. However, the default settings are acceptable for most applications. We recommend that you change these settings only with the assistance of JTAC.

    To configure adaptive clocking for SAToP bundles using the CTP Menu:

    1. From the Main Menu, select 1) Bundle Operations.
    2. Select 2) SAToP.
    3. Select a bundle from the list.

      If you select an active bundle, you are prompted to disable the bundle before configuring it.

    4. Select 3) Port Config.
    5. Select 3) Clock Config.
    6. Select 3) CTP is Clock Source (Adaptive End).
    7. Select 4) Set Adaptive Parameters.
    8. Configure the options as described in Table 1.

    Table 1: SAToP Bundle Adaptive Clocking Settings in the CTP Menu

    FieldFunctionYour Action

    Set to Defaults

    Sets the adaptive clocking configuration to the default settings.

    Select Set to Defaults.

    AGGR Seconds/Calc

    Specifies the time period during initial start of adaptive clocking, during which packet samples that are experiencing the least delay through the network are collected. These samples are used for aggressive state calculations.

    Enter a number from 3 through 200 sec.

    MNTN Seconds/Calc

    Specifies the time period during normal adaptive clocking during which packet samples that are experiencing the least delay through the network are collected. These samples are used for maintenance state calculations.

    Enter a number from 3 through 300 sec.

    Slope for MNTN in ppm

    Specifies the number of packets per minute, which when reached, causes the adaptive clocking algorithm to change from aggressive state to maintenance state. Lower values result in longer switchover times with a clock value closer to the remote clock.

    Enter a number from 1 through 100 packets per minute.

    Maintenance Decay in calcs

    Specifies how quickly the clocking corrects to the buffer set point while in maintenance state.

    Enter a number from 2 though 120 sec.

    Max Clock Adjust in ppb

    Specifies a cap for frequency acceleration, which constrains the frequency adjustments to the adaptive clock.

    Enter a number from 1 through 1000 parts per billion.

    Max Clock Offset in ppm

    Specifies a cap for frequency velocity, which constrains the frequency velocity of the adaptive clock.

    Enter a number from 1 through 400 packets per minute.

    Max Buffer Error in usec

    Specifies the buffer error rate required to change the adaptive clocking algorithm state from maintenance to aggressive.

    Enter a number from 100 through 1,000,000 ųsec.
