Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.3 for EX Series switches.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2 for PTX Packet Series Transport routers.

Support at the [edit services rpm twamp client control-connection control-client-name] hierarchy level introduced in Junos OS Release 15.1 for MX Series routers.


Specify thresholds used for the probes. A system log message is generated when the configured threshold is exceeded. Likewise, an SNMP trap (if configured) is generated when a threshold is exceeded.


If you configure a value of zero using the thresholds option for a certain probe parameter, the generation of SNMP traps is disabled for the corresponding probe attribute. For example, if you specify the set thresholds jitter-egress 0 statement, it denotes that traps are not triggered when the jitter in egress time threshold is met or exceeded.


thresholds—Specify one or more threshold measurements. The following options are supported:

  • egress-time—Measures maximum source-to-destination time per probe.

  • ingress-time—Measures maximum destination-to-source time per probe.

  • jitter-egress—Measures maximum source-to-destination jitter per test.

  • jitter-ingress—Measures maximum destination-to- source jitter per test.

  • jitter-rtt—Measures maximum jitter per test, from 0 through 60,000,000 microseconds.

  • rtt—Measures maximum round-trip time per probe, in microseconds.

  • std-dev-egress—Measures maximum source-to-destination standard deviation per test.

  • std-dev-ingress—Measures maximum destination-to-source standard deviation per test.

  • std-dev-rtt—Measures maximum standard deviation per test, in microseconds.

  • successive-loss—Measures successive probe loss count, indicating probe failure.

  • total-loss—Measures total probe loss count indicating test failure, from 0 through 15.
