    Maintaining the M40e PCGs

    Purpose

    For optimal performance, verify the condition of the Packet Forwarding Engine Clock Generators (PCGs).

    Action

    The router has two PCGs installed in the slots labeled PCG 0 and PCG 1 on the rear of the chassis, as shown in M40e Chassis Description. To maintain the PCGs, regularly:

    • Check the LEDs on the PCG faceplates. The green LED labeled OK lights steadily when the PCG is functioning normally. The blue LED labeled MASTER lights steadily on the master PCG. For more information, see M40e PCG LEDs.
    • Issue the CLI show chassis environment pcg command to check the status of the PCGs. As shown in the sample output, the master PCG is designated Online -  Master clock and the standby PCG Online - Standby:
