Viewing a Graphical Image of the Chassis of PTX Series Routers

In the Connectivity Services Director GUI, you can view a graphical representation of a device from Build mode of Device View by selecting the Device Management > View Physical Inventory option from the Tasks pane. The hardware and line module details are displayed with a pictorial view of the slots of the PTX Series routers and the modules installed in these slots. The Chassis View provides a pictorial representation of the chassis or device, and the modules or components that are installed in it, such as the line cards, interfaces, and other hardware elements.

To view a pictorial representation of a device chassis and the configured components, such as interfaces, line cards, and hardware elements, select a managed device listed on the My Network tree in Device View of Connectivity Services Director, and select Device Management > View Physical Inventory from the tasks pane. The right pane displays the device image and the corresponding description of the view selected in a tabular manner. The Chassis View is displayed. The hardware and line module details are displayed with a pictorial view of the slots of the devices and the modules installed in these slots. The device image can be rotated to view the front, rear, top, bottom, right and left planes of the device by clicking the respective arrow buttons on the page.

To view a graphical image of the chassis and its associated components:

  1. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner.

    The workspaces that are applicable to Build mode are displayed on the Tasks pane.

  2. From the View selector, select Device View.

    The functionalities that you can configure in this view are displayed.

  3. From the Device View pane, click the plus sign (+) next to the My Network tree to expand the tree and select the device for which you want to define the optical port settings.

    The network tree is expanded and the selected device is highlighted.

  4. From the Tasks pane, select Device Management > View Physical Inventory.

    An image of the device is displayed on the right pane.

  5. Click a particular component or interface to display the associated details in the lower portion of the page. The Rotate and Perspective buttons enable you to view the images images in required orientation.

  6. Click the View Back (arrows in a square symbol) icon to cause the device image to rotate along the x-axis and display the rear view of the device. Alternatively, click the View Front icon to view the front plane of the device. The View Back and View Front icons are toggle options.

  7. Click the Perspective (cube symbol) icon to display the device image in three-dimensional format. It is a toggle button, which causes the device image to be shown in either three-dimensional or one-dimensional format.

  8. Select the level of magnification of the image by clicking the Zoom (magnifying glass) icon. The image is expanded and displayed.

    Alternatively, use the slider control beneath the Zoom icon to change the level of magnification.

  9. Click the home icon to return to the front view of the chassis. The selected interface is surrounded with a colored outline based on the operational status. An interface that is operationally up is denoted in green and an interface that is operationally down is represented in red. The components are depicted as small colored icons at the top-left corner of the front view of the equipment image.

In the graphical image of the device displayed, you can mouse over the different parts of the device, such as the interfaces, line cards, and slots. When you mouse over the different modules, their corresponding details are displayed as tooltips. On clicking the device components, the corresponding description for the selected component is displayed by default in the Component Info pane and the Equipment tab with the following values.

The Active Alarms monitor shows any active alarm that has not yet been cleared. It is one of the four standard monitors available in Alarm mode. Active Alarms is a table that has four fields and appear by default. However, nine fields are available for selection. View Table 1 for a description of the table.

Table 1: Active Alarms Monitor


A system and sequentially-generated identification number.

The severity of the alarm. Severity levels are:

  • Critical—A critical condition exists; immediate action is necessary.

  • Major—A major error has occurred; escalate or notify as necessary.

  • Minor—A minor error has occurred; notify or monitor the condition.

  • Info—An informational message; no action is necessary.



Entity ID

The identification of the entity responsible for causing this alarm. The Entity ID is the key for correlation of events into an alarm. The Entity ID could be a MAC address of a radio or an IP address of the device.




The IP address of the device or network element that generated the alarm. The SNMP agent is located at the source IP. In most cases, the source IP is the IP address of the switch or controller.



Reporting Device

The hostname or IP address of the reporting device.



Creation Date

The date and time the alarm was first reported.



Last Updated
