thresholds (Junos OS)


Hierarchy Level


Specify thresholds used for the probes. A system log message is generated when the configured threshold is exceeded. Likewise, an SNMP trap (if configured) is generated when a threshold is exceeded.


If you configure a value of zero using the thresholds option for a certain probe parameter, the generation of SNMP traps is disabled for the corresponding probe attribute. For example, if you specify the set thresholds jitter-egress 0 statement, it denotes that traps are not triggered when the jitter in egress time threshold is met or exceeded.


thresholds—Specify one or more threshold measurements. The following options are supported:

  • egress-time—Measures maximum source-to-destination time per probe.

  • ingress-time—Measures maximum destination-to-source time per probe.

  • jitter-egress—Measures maximum source-to-destination jitter per test.

  • jitter-ingress—Measures maximum destination-to- source jitter per test.

  • jitter-rtt—Measures maximum jitter per test, from 0 through 60,000,000 microseconds.

  • rtt—Measures maximum round-trip time per probe, in microseconds.

  • std-dev-egress—Measures maximum source-to-destination standard deviation per test.

  • std-dev-ingress—Measures maximum destination-to-source standard deviation per test.

  • std-dev-rtt—Measures maximum standard deviation per test, in microseconds.

  • successive-loss—Measures successive probe loss count, indicating probe failure.

  • total-loss—Measures total probe loss count indicating test failure, from 0 through 15.
