Configure an Iterator Profile on a Switch (CLI Procedure)

Ethernet frame delay measurement provides fine control to operators for triggering delay measurement on a given service and can be used to monitor service-level agreements (SLAs). You can create an iterator profile with its parameters to periodically transmit SLA measurement packets in the form of ITU-Y.1731-compliant frames for two-way delay measurement.

To create an iterator profile:

  1. Specify a name for an SLA iterator profile—for example, i1:
  2. (Optional) Configure the cycle time, which is the time (in milliseconds) between back-to-back transmissions of SLA frames.
  3. (Optional) Configure the iteration period, which indicates the maximum number of cycles per iteration (the number of connections registered to an iterator cannot exceed this value).
  4. Configure the measurement type as two-way delay measurement.
  5. (Optional) Configure the calculation weight for delay.
  6. (Optional) Configure the calculation weight for delay variation.
  7. Configure a remote MEP with the iterator profile.
