Real Time Status

 

The IP/MPLSView main window has a Performance menu used to display live traffic, aggregated traffic, real-time status and usage, device and network performance, and diagnostics. It is also used to manage the traffic collector.

Select Performance>Real Time Status to display the Real Time Status window. From the Live Status to Monitor menu, select: Link Status, Tunnel Status, BGP Neighbor Status, OSPF Neighbor Status, or ISIS Adjacency Status. Figure 1 shows the Live Link Status window.

Each column head has a menu. From the menu within each column, the element information can be sorted in ascending or descending order. You can select which columns are displayed or hidden. Columns can also be resized and the order can be rearranged.

Table 1 describes the Live Link Status table columns.

Column Name

Description

Name

Name of the link.

NodeA

Name of node A at one end of the link.

Interface A

Physical and logical interface on node A at one end of the link.

IP_A

IP address of node A at one end of the link.

NodeZ

Name of node Z at one end of the link.

InterfaceZ

Physical and logical interface on node Z at one end of the link.

IP_Z

IP address of node Z at one end of the link.

Admin Status

The administrative status of the link (up, down, or unknown).

Oper Status

The operational status of the link (up, down, testing, unknown, dormant, notPresent, or lowerLayerDown).

From the Live Status to Monitor menu, select Tunnel Status. The system prompts you to filter the list. Select the node you want to display and click Apply Filter. Figure 2 shows the Live Tunnel Status window.

Table 2 describes the Tunnel Status table columns.

Table 2: Real Time Tunnel Status Table Columns

Column Name

Description

Name

Name of the tunnel.

Node A

Name of node A at one end of the tunnel.

IP_A

IP address of node A at one end of the tunnel.

Node Z

Name of node Z at one end of the tunnel.

IP_Z

IP address of node Z at one end of the tunnel.

Role

The MPLS-TE tunnel role (head, transit, tail, or headTail).

Admin Status

Current status of the tunnel (up, down, or testing).

Oper Status

The operational status of the tunnel (up, down, testing, unknown, dormant, notPresent, or lowerLayerDown) .

Tunnel Up Time

The elapsed time since the tunnel came up.

From the Live Status to Monitor menu, select BGP Neighbor Status. Figure 3 shows the Live BGP Neighbor Status window.

Table 3 describes the BGP Neighbor Status columns.

Table 3: BGP Neighbor Status Table Columns

Column Name

Description

Node

Name of the node that is a BGP speaker.

Interface

Interface used to establish the neighbor peer session.

AS

Autonomous system number of the node.

Neighbor Node

Name of the node that is the BGP neighbor peer.

Neighbor Address

IP address of the node that is the BGP neighbor peer.

Neighbor AS

Autonomous system number of the node that is the BGP neighbor peer.

BGP Peer Status

The status of the peer relationship (connect, active, opensent, openconfirm, unknown, or established). Established is the key state which indicates peers are operationally up and BGP route updates are freely exchanged. BGP Peering Operation Status = Up only if peering state = Established. Any other peering state collected (idle, connect, active, opensent, or openconfirm) implies BGP Peering Operational Status = Down.

bgpPeerFsmEstablishedTime

How long this peer has been in the Established state or how long since this peer was last in the Established state. It is set to zero when a new peer is configured or the router is booted.

Table 4 describes the Live OSPF Neighbor Status table columns.

Table 4: Live OSPF Neighbor Status Table Columns

Column Name

Description

Node A

Name of the node.

RouterIdA

OSPF router ID of the node.

InterfaceA

Interface used to establish the OSPF neighbor adjacency.

IP_A

IP address of node A used to establish the OSPF neighbor adjacency (not shown).

Node Z

Name of the node that is the OSPF neighbor.

RouterIdZ

OSPF router ID of the neighbor node.

InterfaceZ

Interface on the neighbor node used to establish the OSPF neighbor adjacency.

IP_Z

IP address of the neighbor node used to establish the OSPF neighbor adjacency (not shown).

Priority

The OSPF priority used to determine which router is selected as the designated router (DR) or backup designated router (BDR) of the area.

State

The state of the OSPF neighbor adjacency (down, attempt, init, twoWay, exchangeStart, exchange, loading, full, or unknown).
