Displaying BERT Status and Counters for CTP Bundles (CTPView)

 

This topic describes how to display BERT status and counters.

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 change the status of the bundles.

To view BERT status and counters:

  1. In the side pane, select Bundle > Diagnostics.
  2. Click Bit Error Rate Tester.
  3. Run your mouse over the MouseOver to Select a Port to Display bar.

    A list of bundles configured on the CTP device appears.

  4. In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to view.

    The BERT configuration and counters page appears. Table 1 describes the status and the counter fields.
