TCX1000-RDM20 and TCX1000-ILA Real-Time Telemetry Metrics


This topic describes the real-time telemetry metrics supported on the TCX1000-RDM20 and TCX1000-ILA.

You can view and graph real-time telemetry metrics for the optical ports and services running on the TCX1000-RDM20. The proNX Optical Director receives streams of telemetry data from optical devices in the network. This data is used by the proNX Optical Director Optical Control Layer to manage the optical controls of the optical ports on the devices. A subset of this data is available for viewing.

You can view telemetry data in the proNX Optical Director within the Services panel and within the Telemetry panel under Metrics for each port on the TCX1000-RDM20.

For services running on the TCX1000-RDM20, you can define the duration, in seconds, make a selection of A-Z or Z-A end points and view the corresponding telemetry data, by selecting the start button. As each data point is received from the telemetry stream, a chart is updated.

You can view telemetry data for the optical ports on the TCX1000-RDM20 including the universal ports, line ports, and OSC ports. To view the telemetry data, select an optical port, select the Telemetry option under Metrics, select a duration, in seconds and select the metric you want to view, and select start. As each data point is received from the telemetry stream, a chart is updated. You can view and graph the following telemetry metrics for the TCX1000-RDM20:

  • Line and universal port telemetry metrics — OMS POWER IN/OUT

  • OSC0/OSC1 port telemetry metrics — OSC POWER IN/OUT

OMS power is the combined total power of all the C-band channel powers. OSC power is the power of the 1510 nm optical service channel. The Line port power in/out is a combination of the OMS and OSC powers. The universal port power in/out is only the OMS power. OSC in is only between the Line ports.

On the TCX1000-ILA optical ports, you can view and graph: Rx OMS Power In, Rx Total Power In, Tx OMS Power Out, and Tx Total Power Out.
