Release Information

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 10.0 for EX Series switches.

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2X50-D15 for the QFX Series.

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D20 for the OCX Series.

Description

Display diagnostics data and alarms for Gigabit Ethernet optical transceivers (SFP, SFP+, XFP, QSFP+, or CFP) installed in EX Series or QFX Series switches. The information provided by this command is known as digital optical monitoring (DOM) information.

Thresholds that trigger a high alarm, low alarm, high warning, or low warning are set by the transponder vendors. Generally, a high alarm or low alarm indicates that the optics module is not operating properly. This information can be used to diagnose why a transceiver is not working.

Options

interface-nameName of the interface associated with the port in which the transceiver is installed: ge-fpc/pic/port, xe-fpc/pic/port, or et-fpc/pic/port.

Output Fields

Table 1 lists the output fields for the show interfaces diagnostics optics command. Output fields are listed in the approximate order in which they appear.

Transceivers generate monitoring data such as power supply voltage, transceiver temperature, TEC current, receive optical power, laser output power, laser temperature, and laser bias current by digitization of internal analog signals. Each supported analog to digital conversion value has a high alarm, low alarm, high warning, and low warning threshold. These values are configured by the transceiver manufacturer and allow the user to determine when a value is outside the normal limits.

Warning flags associated with power supply voltage, transceiver temperature, TEC current, receive optical power, laser output power, laser temperature, and laser bias current indicate conditions outside the normal limits; however, that need not cause immediate link failures.

Alarm flags associated with power supply voltage, transceiver temperature, TEC current, receive optical power, laser output power, laser temperature, and laser bias current indicate conditions likely, but not necessarily, to be associated with an operational failure of the transceiver and cause for immediate action.

Checksum fault alarm

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, XFP, and QSFP+ transceivers)

Displays whether the checksum fault alarm is On or Off.

To protect against degradation in the non-volatile storage and potential errors in transfer, the module management interface defines a few registers to let module manufacturers save checksums or check codes. Each checksum or check code is assigned for a small-sized datum derived from a block of digital data. The algorithms of calculation for checksums or check codes are defined by management interface specifications of form factors. For example, the checksum or check code shall be the low order 8 bits of the sum of the contents of that small-sized datum. Prior to using the stored information, module users calculate the checksums or check codes again using the same algorithm. If the results are different from those saved in checksum bytes by module manufacturers, checksum fault alarm is triggered. A Checksum fault means that the content of the small-sized datum covered by this checksum is corrupted or changed.

Some transceivers have Clock and Data Recovery (CDR) circuits at the transmit side. The CDR has its own oscillator and uses a phase locked loop (PLL) to calibrate the oscillator and match it to the phase and frequency of the incoming signal. The feedback circuit of PLL eventually locks the local oscillator on to the phase and frequency of the incoming signal. The PLL maintains that lock by continuously monitoring the received signal. If the lock cannot be maintained, the Loss of Lock (LOL) alarm is generated.

Alarm flags associated with receive optical power indicate conditions likely, but not necessarily, to be associated with an operational failure of the transceiver and cause for immediate action.

Displays the vendor-specified threshold for the laser rx power high warning.

Transceivers generate monitoring data such as receive optical power by digitization of internal analog signals.

These values are configured by the transceiver manufacturer and allow the user to determine when a value is outside the normal limits.

Warning flags associated with receive optical power indicate conditions outside the normal limits; however, that need not cause immediate link failures.

Laser receiver power high alarm

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Displays whether the laser receiver power high alarm is On or Off.

This alarm is triggered when the receive optical power is higher than the high alarm threshold.

Laser receiver power low alarm

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Displays whether the laser receiver power low alarm is On or Off.

This alarm is triggered when the receive optical power is lower than the high alarm threshold.

Laser receiver power high warning

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Displays whether the laser receiver power high warning is On or Off.

This warning is triggered when the receive optical power is higher than the high warning threshold.

Laser receiver power low warning

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Displays whether the laser receiver power low warning is On or Off.

This warning is triggered when the receive optical power is lower than the high warning threshold.

Laser receiver power

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Displays the laser receiver power, in milliwatts (mW) and decibels referred to 1.0 mW (dBm).

Tx loss of signal functionality alarm

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Displays whether the Tx loss of signal functionality alarm is On or Off.

This alarm is generated if the high-speed electrical signal amplitude of Tx input is below a threshold.

APD supply fault alarm

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, XFP, and QSFP+ transceivers)

Displays whether the APD supply fault alarm is On or Off.

Some transceivers have Avalanche Photodiode (APD) receiver to improve receiver sensitivity. APD requires a bias voltage. If there is a disruption in the bias voltage supply, the APD supply fault alarm is generated.

TEC fault alarm

(Not available for SFP, SFP+, XFP, and QSFP+ transceivers)

Displays whether the TEC fault alarm is On or Off.

Some transceivers have an internal temperature controller—Thermoelectric Cooler (TEC). If the TEC is faulty, the TEC fault alarm is generated.

Displays whether the Wavelength unlocked alarm is On or Off.

The transmitter wavelengths of some transceivers must be maintained at greater accuracy over operational lifetimes. Wavelength locker is used to stabilize the wavelength of the laser diode. If the wavelength is out of the specified range, the wavelength unlocked alarm is generated.
