Displaying Running VComp Bundle Configuration, State, and Counters (CTPView)

This topic describes how to display the running configuration of your bundle along with the state and counters.

Before you begin:

  • Log in to the CTPView software at least at the Net_Admin level.

  • Connect the CTPView server to the CTP device for which you want to configure bundles.

  • Disable the bundle before you modify the bundle options.

To view the configuration of a bundle:

  1. In the side pane, select Bundle > Runtime Query.
  2. Run your mouse over the Display and Select an Existing Bundle bar.
  3. In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to view.
  4. Click Display Selected Bundles.

    The running configuration of the bundle appears along with the bundle state and counters. Table 20 on page 34 describes the fields in the bundle state and counters sections.

Field Name

Field Description

Runtime State


DSP Info(dsp/bndl)

Indicates which voice compression module (DSP) the bundle is built on, as well as the bundle allocation ID on the voice compression module.

Voice Channel Signaling

Current voice signaling. This field is displayed for VComp bundles that carry analog voice interfaces as well as VComp bundles that transport T1/E1 ports with signaling enabled. This information is not displayed for VComp bundles transporting channels from T1/E1 interfaces with signaling disabled.

Under Chan Src, the XX: prefix indicates the channel number.

I/F bound packets

Number of packets received from the IP network destined for the bundle.

NET bound packets

Number of packets created by the bundle and sent to the IP network.

Missing pkts

Number of packets destined for the bundle that were not available at the time when that data was needed. This unavailability may be due to a dropped packet in the IP network or to a packet that arrived too late at the CTP device to be processed out the interface. Both dropped and late packets cause the missing packet counter to increment.

Buffer underflows

Number of times the buffer reached the minimum set threshold.

Buffer overflows

Number of times the buffer reached the maximum set threshold.

Buffer starves

Indicates an exceeded threshold. The CTP device is designed to tolerate strings of consecutive missing packets without the loss of bit count integrity. The number of packets is configurable; the default is five (5). Exceeding this threshold is called a starvation, and a counter is incremented each time this event occurs.

Buffer average

Average buffer size in ms.
