Enabling the Hardware-Assisted Timestamping Option

By default, Ethernet frame delay measurement uses software for timestamping transmitted and received ETH-DM frames. For Ethernet interfaces on Enhanced Dense Port Concentrators (DPCs) and Enhanced Queuing DPCs only, you can optionally use hardware timing to assist in the timestamping of received ETH-DM frames to increase the accuracy of delay measurements.

Enabling hardware-assisted timestamping of received frames can increase the accuracy of ETH-DM calculations when the DPC is loaded with heavy traffic in the receive direction.

To enable Ethernet frame delay measurement hardware assistance on the reception path, include the hardware-assisted-timestamping statement at the [edit protocols oam ethernet connectivity-fault-management performance-monitoring] hierarchy level:
