Viewing a Graphical Image of Optical Inline Amplifier

The Chassis View provides a pictorial representation of the optical inline amplifier (ILA) of a PTX Series router. The optical ILA is used in conjunction with the integrated photonic line card (IPLC) that is installed in the PTX3000 routers. The optical ILA operates with redundant hot-swappable pluggable power supplies, which are either AC or DC.

The purpose of this view is to try and provide a comprehensive monitoring view of the health and status of deployed devices across the network. In this view all the managed devices are shown with their appropriate status and health based on the services and device settings applied. This view helps the operator to know the health and status across the network, it provides with the operator to quickly see the macro level information, which allows the operator to further analyze the information provided and quickly navigate to individual devices and take any further corrective measure required. It provides a cohesive tool for the operator to quickly see the micro-level information and take any further remediation action required.

To view a graphical image of the optical ILA of PTX Series routers, 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 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.

  • Description—Configured textual description of the component.

  • Manufacturer—Name of the company that built and shipped the device.

  • Model—Model of the FRU component.

  • Name—Name of the chassis component.

  • Part number—Part number of the chassis component.

  • Serial number—Serial number of the chassis component. The serial number of the backplane is also the serial number of the router or switch chassis. Use this serial number when you need to contact Juniper Networks Customer Support about the router or switch chassis.

The Component Info pane and the Active Alarms monitor are displayed in the lower portion of the page.

The Active Alarms monitor shows any active alarm that has not yet been cleared. You can view the alarm name, the unique identifier assigned to the alarm, the person to which the alarm is assigned for corrective action, and the severity of the alarm. Click the Launch Alarm Mgmt icon (right upward-slanting arrow enclosed in a square) to navigate to the Fault mode and view the four standard alarm monitors available in Fault mode.

Active Alarms for the respective components are displayed when the component is clicked in the image of the chassis displayed. The components for which the alarms are displayed are Flexible Port Concentrator (FPC), Dense Port Concentrator (DPC), Physical Interface Card (PIC), Modular Interface Card (MIC), Routing Engine, Control Boards, fan trays, Switch Interface Board (SIB), and power supply module (PSM).

The following fields are displayed in the Active Alarms pane:

Table 1: Active Alarms Monitor

Table Column



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.


The alarm name.


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.

Last Updated

The date and time that the information for the alarm was last modified.

From the Chassis View window, click the Details icon (arrow enclosed in a square) at the top-right corner of the window to open the Chassis View Details page that lists the configured devices and their parameters in the form of a table.

Click the Apply Configlet button (pencil icon displayed beside the button) and use the links shown on the components in Chassis View to select the context and apply configlets.
