About the Dashboard

To access this page, click the Dashboard tab.

This is the first page you see when you log in to the proNX Optical Director. The dashboard is user-configurable and offers you a customized view of the health of your network through its widgets. You can add, remove, and rearrange widgets to meet your needs. The dashboard automatically adjusts the placement of the widgets to dynamically fit in your browser window.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can view the health of your network from this page. Additionally, you can customize the dashboard by adding, removing, and rearranging the widgets on a per user basis.

Field Descriptions

Table 3 describes the available widgets in the dashboard.

Description

Available Ports - Optical

View the number of available optical ports in your network as a percentage of the total number of optical ports. This gives an approximate indication of client port usage. A high percentage usually indicates that you need to add more multiplexer/demultiplexers to your network.

The total number of optical ports at each ROADM node is the number of universal ports on the ROADM(s), plus the number of client ports on attached multiplexer/demultiplexers, less the number of multiplexers/demultiplexers. For example, a ROADM node consisting of a single TCX1000-RDM20 and a single FMD96 has 20 universal ports plus 96 multiplexer/demultiplexer client ports less 1 port used to connect to the multiplexer/demultiplexer, which results in 115 optical ports. The total number of optical ports in the network is the sum of the total number of optical ports at each ROADM node in the network.

The number of available optical ports at each ROADM node is the total number of optical ports less the number of channels added/dropped at that node. For example, if the above ROADM node has 15 channels added/dropped (regardless of whether the channels are added/dropped directly on the universal ports or through the FMD96), then the number of available optical ports is the 115 total ports less the 15 channels, which results in 100 available ports. The number of available ports in the network is the sum of the number of available ports at each ROADM node in the network.

See Topology Overview for an explanation of ROADM nodes.

Available Ports - Packet

View the number of supported tail facility ports available as a percentage of the total number of supported tail facility ports. A tail facility port is considered available if its operational status is Down.

See Services Overview for an explanation of tail facilities.

Current Alarms

View the number of current alarms in your network categorized by severity.

Click a severity to bring up the Current Alarms table filtered for the string “Critical”, “Major”, or “Minor” depending on the severity selected.

This widget is updated automatically as alarms are raised, cleared, or acknowledged.

Device Types

View the number of devices in your network categorized by device type.

Select the device types to display by toggling the selection boxes in the legend.

This widget is a snapshot. To refresh the counts, click the icon.

Historical Alarms

View the top ten devices with the highest historical alarm counts.

Select the devices to display by toggling the selection boxes in the legend. If a device has a count that is much higher than the others, the scale on the graph might not provide sufficient resolution for you to see the counts for the other devices. In this case, simply uncheck the devices with the higher counts to see the counts for the other devices on a more useful scale.

Historical Events

View the top ten devices with the highest historical event counts.

Select the devices to display by toggling the selection boxes in the legend. If a device has a count that is much higher than the others, the scale on the graph might not provide sufficient resolution for you to see the counts for the other devices. In this case, simply uncheck the devices with the higher counts to see the counts for the other devices on a more useful scale.

This widget is a snapshot. To refresh the counts, click the icon.

Hourly Event Count

View the number of events that have occurred in the network over each of the last 24 hours.

This widget is a snapshot. To refresh the counts, click the icon.

Site Alarms

View the alarm counts by severity by site.

Select the site to display from the drop-down list.

This widget is updated automatically as alarms occur.

Software Versions

View software versions running on devices in the network (including supported devices at the tail facility endpoint).

Select the software versions to display by toggling the selection boxes in the legend.

System Details

See Table 4.

Task Statistics

View the counts of successful (green) and failed (red) tasks launched by the proNX Optical Director. The failed task count includes tasks with a status of Failure or Finished. (A Finished task is a task where one or more subtasks have failed.)

Click a status inside the graph to bring up the Administration Tasks table filtered for the Success status or the Failure or Finished status depending on the status selected.

Note: This widget is applicable for counts of tasks and not subtasks.

This widget is a snapshot. To refresh the counts, click the icon.

Unreachable Devices

View the list of unreachable devices in your network. These are the devices that are discovered but are no longer reachable. The proNX Optical Director rediscovers all devices periodically. If the proNX Optical Director does not receive a response from a device after a number of tries, the proNX Optical Director declares the device unreachable. You will not be able to configure or create links or services on unreachable devices.

This widget is a snapshot. To refresh the list, click the icon.

Note: You can refresh all widgets simultaneously by clicking the icon in the top right corner of the page.
