TCX1000-ILA Performance Monitoring Metrics

 

Table 1 lists the performance monitoring metrics supported on the TCX1000-ILA. All performance monitoring metrics support 15 minute and 24 hour binning.

Note

The TCX1000-ILA performance monitoring metrics are not associated with a specific line (Line A or Line B) port. All TCX1000-ILA performance monitors are shown regardless of which line port is selected in the proNX Optical Director.
