Configuring Circuit Restart Parameters for CESoPSN Bundles on CTP150 Devices (CTPView)


This topic describes how to configure advanced options that are related to circuit restart. 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 missing packet fill pattern for CESoPSN 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, place a check mark in the Advanced Options show check box to display advanced parameters, and configure the parameters described inTable 19, and click Click to Submit Bundle AND Port Changes.

FieldFunctionYour Action

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.
