ONS 15454 Procedure Guide R8.5.1 -- Monitor Performance

From DocWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This chapter explains how to enable and view performance monitoring statistics for the Cisco ONS 15454. Performance monitoring (PM) parameters are used by service providers to gather, store, and set thresholds and report performance data for early detection of problems. For more PM information, details, and definition, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.
