    Checklist for Monitoring the FIC

    Purpose

    You monitor the Fixed Interface Card (FIC), which receives incoming packets from the network and transmits outgoing packets to the network, providing support for Fast Ethernet ports or Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, depending on which version of the FIC is installed in the M7i router. You also monitor the FIC to view alarm status, and to perform some system control functions, such as taking PICs online and offline. (See Table 1.)
