    Check the Router Craft Interface

    Purpose

    To confirm that the craft interface is functioning properly by checking the alarm indicator status or by checking the craft interface physically.

    Action

    To check the router craft interface, do one of the following:

    • Use the following command:
      user@host> show chassis craft-interface

      The command output displays the router alarm indicator status, the LCD display information (router name, router uptime, and status message that rotates at 2-second intervals), and the major component LED status. Table 1 describes the command output for each router type. For more detailed information about the craft interface, see Checklist for Monitoring the Craft Interface .

      Table 1: show chassis craft-interface Command Output for Router Types

      Router

      Command Output

      M5/M10

      Red alarm, Yellow alarm, Routing Engine OK, Routing Engine Fail, FPCs, and LCD screen. Note: Even though there is no LCD screen on the M5/M10 routers, there is still output from this command for the LCD.

      M7i/M10i

      Red alarm, Yellow alarm, Routing Engine OK, Routing Engine Fail, FPCs, and LCD screen. Note: Even though there is no LCD screen on the M7i/M10i routers, there is still output from this command for the LCD.

      M20

      Red alarm, Yellow alarm, Routing Engine OK, Routing Engine Fail, FPCs, and LCD screen.

      M40

      Red alarm, Yellow alarm, Routing Engine OK, Routing Engine Fail, FPCs, and LCD screen.

      M40e/M160

      FPM Display contents, Front Panel System LEDs (Routing Engine OK, Fail, Master), Front Panel Alarm Indicators (Red LED, Yellow LED, Major relay, Minor relay), Front Panel FPC LEDs, MCS LEDs, PCG LEDs, and SFM LEDs.

      M120

      Routing Engine OK, Fail, Routing Master; Front Panel Alarm Indicators (Red LED, Yellow LED, Major relay, Minor relay), Front Panel FPC LEDs, CB LEDs, power supply (PS) LEDs, and FEB LEDs

      M320

      FPM Display contents, Front Panel System LEDs (Routing Engine OK, Fail, Master), Front Panel Alarm Indicators (Red LED, Yellow LED, Major relay, Minor relay) Front Panel FPC LEDs, Control Board LEDs, SIB LEDs, and power supply (PS) LEDs.

      T320/T640/
      T1600/TX Matrix/TX Matrix Plus

      FPM Display contents, Front Panel System LEDs (Routing Engine OK, Fail, Master), Front Panel Alarm Indicators (Red LED, Yellow LED, Major relay, Minor relay), Front Panel FPC LEDs, Control Board LEDs, SCG LEDs, and SIB LEDs.

    • Physically look at the router craft interface.Table 2 and Table 3 shows the component characteristics of each router craft interface.
