Devices Configuration

About the Devices Configuration Page

To access this page, click the Devices tab and select Configuration in the left-nav bar.

The Devices Configuration page is the top level page where you manage sites and devices in your network. It consists of a mini-left-nav bar that displays the device tree and a main pane that is in context with the selection in the device tree. The device tree is a hierarchical representation of the device’s component model.

The device tree can be categorized by device type or by site. When you categorize the device tree by site, the Devices Configuration (Sites) page appears. When you categorize the device tree by device type, the Devices Configuration (Device Types) page appears.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

Field Descriptions

Table 12 and Table 13 describe the fields in the Devices Configuration (Sites) page and the Devices Configuration (Device Types) page. To switch between these two pages, see Navigating the Device Tree.

Table 12: Fields in the Devices Configuration (Sites) Page

Field

Description

Site Name

The name of the site. You configure the name when you create the site.

Description

The description of the site. You add the description when you create the site.

Devices

The number of devices at that site. Passive equipment such as a multiplexer/demultiplexer is not included in this count. Passive equipment is modeled as a circuit pack on an active device.

Table 13: Fields in the Devices Configuration (Device Types) Page

Field

Description

Model Name

The model name of the device. This information is retrieved from the device.

Manufacturer

The manufacturer of the device. This information is retrieved from the device.

Devices

The number of devices for that device type. Passive equipment such as a multiplexer/demultiplexer is not associated with a device type and is therefore not included in this count. Passive equipment is modeled as a circuit pack on an active device.

Procedure

Use this procedure to navigate the device tree. When you go to the Devices Configuration page, the mini-left-nav bar shows a collapsed device tree categorized by either device type or site depending on how it was last categorized.

The tree is arranged hierarchically as follows:

  • Device type or site (highest level)

  • Device

  • Shelf

  • Circuit pack (one or more levels)

  • Port (lowest level)

In order to provide a consistent look-and-feel, the proNX Optical Director maps all devices into the above hierarchy.

Where needed, the hierarchy is extended to include additional levels. For example, an MX Series router has a chassis that contains FPCs that in turn contain MICs that in turn contain transceivers and ports. The proNX Optical Director represents this as a device containing a shelf containing an FPC circuit pack containing a MIC circuit pack containing a transceiver circuit pack containing a port.

In contrast, TCX Series devices do not have shelves or circuit packs, so the proNX Optical Director represents TCX Series devices as devices containing a single shelf that contains a single circuit pack.

  1. To view the device tree categorized by site, click the Sort icon below the device tree and select Site. To view the device tree categorized by device type, click the Sort icon and select Device Type.
  2. To expand an entry in the device tree, click the expansion arrow to the left of the entry. Only entries that contain branches have expansion arrows. To collapse an entry, click the expansion arrow again.
  3. To select an entry, expand the device tree and click the entry you want to select., The main pane shows information in context with the selected entry.
  4. To select multiple entries, press the Ctrl key (or Cmd key in Mac OS X) before selecting each entry.
  5. To search for an entry by name or IP address, click the Search icon beneath the device tree and type the search string in the search box. As you type, a list of matching entries is shown. Continue typing to narrow down the list or move your mouse over the desired entry to highlight it. Once the desired entry is highlighted, click or press Enter to select it.

    The device tree expands and highlights the selected entry.

    To close the search box, click the Search icon again.

  6. To collapse the entire tree, click the Collapse icon below the device tree.

Component Naming

The proNX Optical Director displays components in the device tree and elsewhere using names that are native to the device being managed. For example, pic:2/0/0 represents a PIC in FPC 2, MIC 0, and PIC 0.

For the TCX Series devices, see Table 14 to Table 17.
