If outages in your network tend to be longer. To return to the default carrier delay value. On the other hand. use the no form of this command. In most environments a lower carrier delay is better than a higher one. If data links in your network are subject to short outages. a large carrier delay timer results in fewer link-up/link-down events being detected. the down state is effectively filtered. Command Modes Interface configuration Command History Release 10. setting the carrier delay time to 0 means that every link-up/link-down event is detected. use the carrier-delay command in interface configuration mode. especially if those outages last less than the time it takes for your IP routing to converge. The exact value that you choose depends on the nature of the link outages that you expect to see in your network and how long you expect those outages to last. The default is 2. to wait for the system to change states. and the IP route convergence begins and ends sooner. you should set a relatively long carrier delay value to prevent these short outages from causing unnecessary churn in your routing tables. Usage Guidelines If a link goes down and comes back up before the carrier delay timer expires. and the rest of the software on the switch is not aware that a link-down event occurred. (Optional) Time in milliseconds. you might want to set a shorter carrier delay so that the outages are detected sooner.1 Modification This command was introduced. Therefore.

None Software compression makes heavy demands on the router’s processor. These maximums also assume that there is very little processor load on the router aside from compression. When using hardware compression on Cisco 7200 series routers with multiple CSAs. Compression Type to Use Predictor Bottleneck is the result of line bandwidth or hardware compression on the Stacker CSA is available. you can optionally specify which CSA is used by the interface to perform compression. you can specify a Stacker compression algorithm by using the stac keyword. Table 3 Compression Guidelines Situation Bottleneck is caused by the load on the router. Cisco 7200 and 7500 Series Using CSA hardware compression on Cisco 7200 series routers and Cisco 7500 series routers removes the compression and decompression responsibilities from the VIP2 or the main processor installed in the router. If no CSA is specified. setting the ignore-pfc option may remedy the problem.Interface Commands compress asynchronous driver devices that use an uncompressed protocol field (0x0021). If the files are already compressed. Table 4 shows a summary of the compressed serial line rates for software compression. a Cisco 4000 series router could handle four 64-kbps lines using Stacker compression or one 256-kbps line. Lower these numbers when the router is required to do other processor-intensive tasks. HDLC Encapsulations For HDLC encapsulations. the router determines which CSA is used. the router determines the fastest compression method available on the router. By using the compress stac command. Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-43 . The maximum compressed serial line rate depends on the type of Cisco router that you are using and which compression algorithm you specify. use the show process cpu EXEC command. We recommend that you disable compression if the CPU load exceeds 40 percent. Most files are already compressed. For example. it might affect system performance significantly. Table 3 provides general guidelines for deciding which compression type to select. even though the pfc is negotiated between peers. Public Data Network Connections Compression requires that both ends of the serial link be configured to use compression. To display the CPU load. If the majority of your traffic is already compressed files. the additional processing time spent in attempting unsuccessfully to compress them again will slow system performance. the router uses the CSA on the same VIP2 as the interface. PPP and LAPB encapsulations support both predictor and Stacker compression algorithms. You should never enable compression for connections to a public data network. The maximums shown in Table 4 apply to the “combined” serial compressed load on the router. we recommend that you not use compression. System Performance Caution When compression is performed in software installed in the router’s main processor. On Cisco 7500 series routers. If protocol rejects are displayed when the debug ppp negotiation command is enabled.

This is the default for asynchronous interfaces only.535. Defaults The default input hold-queue limit is 75 packets. For asynchronous interfaces. For asynchronous interfaces the default is 10 packets.0 11. To restore the default values for an interface. use the hold-queue command in interface configuration mode. The range of allowed values is 0 to 65. Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-92 . Specifies the input queue.1 Modification This command was introduced. The default is 75 packets. the default is 10 packets. queue length should not exceed 100. These limits prevent a malfunctioning interface from consuming an excessive amount of memory. It is recommended that the queue size not exceed ten packets on asynchronous interfaces.Interface Commands hold-queue hold-queue To limit the size of the IP output queue on an interface. The input hold queue prevents a single interface from flooding the network server with too many input packets. The no hold-queue command was added. other media types have different defaults. For most other interfaces. Hold Queues and Priority Queueing The hold queue stores packets received from the network that are waiting to be sent to the client. For asynchronous interfaces. hold-queue length {in | out} no hold-queue {in | out} Syntax Description length in out Integer that specifies the maximum number of packets in the queue. There is no fixed upper limit to a queue size. Specifies the output queue. Further input packets are discarded if the interface has too many input packets outstanding in the system. the default is 10 packets. use the no form of this command with the appropriate keyword. The default is 40 packets. The default output hold-queue limit is 40 packets. Command Modes Interface configuration Command History Release 10. Usage Guidelines Back-to-Back Routing Updates The default of 10 packets allows the Cisco IOS software to queue a number of back-to-back routing updates.

For slow links. the length of the four output queues is set using the priority-list global configuration command. Dropping packets instead informs hosts to slow down transmissions to match available bandwidth. This approach prevents storing packets at a rate that exceeds the transmission capability of the link. but can empty the output hold queue quickly when capacity returns. Examples The following example sets a small input queue on a slow serial line: Router(config)# interface serial 0 Router(config-if)# hold-queue 30 i Related Commands Command priority-list show interfaces Description Assigns a priority queue for those packets that do not match any other rule in the priority list. use a large output hold-queue limit.Interface Commands hold-queue If priority output queueing is being used. A fast link may be busy for a short time (and thus require the hold queue). use the show interfaces command in EXEC mode. This is generally better than having duplicate copies of the same packet within the network (which can happen with large hold queues). Displays statistics for all interfaces configured on the router or access server. do not increase the output queue. For protocols that use seq/ack packets to determine round trip times. To display the current hold queue setting and the number of packets discarded because of hold queue overflows. The hold-queue command cannot be used to set an output hold queue length in this situation. Caution Increasing the hold queue can have detrimental effects on network routing and response times. For fast links. use a small output hold-queue limit. Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-93 .

The default value for the retries argument was increased to 5. the default of 5 is used. specifies the number of times that the device will continue to send keepalive packets without response before bringing the tunnel interface protocol down. Setting the keepalive timer to a low value is very useful for rapidly detecting Ethernet interface failures (transceiver cable disconnecting. or before bringing the tunnel protocol down for a specific interface. and so on). The default is 10 seconds. The interval is adjustable in 1-second increments down to 1 second. To turn off keepalive packets entirely.2(8)T 12. a keepalive packet is sent at the specified time interval to keep the interface active.Interface Commands keepalive keepalive To enable keepalive packets and to specify the number of times that the Cisco IOS software tries to send keepalive packets without a response before bringing down the interface. which is the frequency at which the Cisco IOS software sends messages to itself (Ethernet and Token Ring) or to the other end (serial and tunnel). if no value had been specified previously. to ensure that a network interface is alive. An interface is declared down after three update intervals have passed without receiving a keepalive packet unless the retry value is set higher. Usage Guidelines Keepalive Time Interval You can configure the keepalive time interval. If omitted. use the keepalive command in interface configuration mode. Integer value greater than 1 and less than 255. keepalive [period [retries]] no keepalive [period [retries]] Syntax Description period retries (Optional) Integer value in seconds greater than 0.

GRE Tunnels with IPsec When using GRE with IPsec. so it is possible that they will be dropped.Interface Commands keepalive Line Failure A typical serial line failure involves losing Carrier Detect (CD) signal. From the receiving side of the tunnel. Default Behaviors If you enter only the keepalive command with no arguments. Keepalive Packets with Tunnel Interfaces GRE keepalive packets may be sent from both sides of a tunnel. To reduce the chance that dropped keepalive packets will cause the tunnel interface to be taken down. If you configure keepalives on only one side of the tunnel. If you enter the no keepalive command. the first GRE keepalive packet will trigger IKE/IPsec initialization. the tunnel interface on the sending side might perceive the tunnel interface on the receiving side to be down because the sending interface is not receiving keepalives. large datagrams can delay the smaller keepalive packets long enough to cause the line protocol to go down. if the IKE and IPsec security associations are not already active on the GRE tunnel. increase the number of retries. keepalive packets are disabled on the interface. the default number of retries (3) is used. Because this sort of failure is typically noticed within a few milliseconds. Examples The following example sets the keepalive interval to 3 seconds: Router(config)# interface ethernet 0 Router(config-if)# keepalive 3 The following example sets the keepalive interval to 3 seconds and the retry value to 7: Router(config)# interface tunnel 1 Router(config-if)# keepalive 3 7 Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-122 . defaults for both arguments are used. If they are sent from both sides. As with user data packets. the period and retry parameters can be different at each side of the link. the keepalives are encrypted like any other traffic. You may need to experiment to determine the best values to use for the timeout and the number of retry attempts. Dropped Packets Keepalive packets are treated as ordinary packets. Note When adjusting the keepalive timer for a very low bandwidth serial interface. If you enter only the keepalive command and the timeout parameter. or from just one side.

Description Indicates whether the interface hardware is currently active and if it has been taken down by an administrator. Indicates whether the software processes that handle the line protocol consider the line usable or if it has been taken down by an administrator. Hardware type (for example, MCI Ethernet, SCI, cBus Ethernet) and address. Internet address followed by subnet mask. Maximum transmission unit of the interface. Bandwidth of the interface in kilobits per second. Delay of the interface in microseconds. Reliability of the interface as a fraction of 255 (255/255 is 100 percent reliability), calculated as an exponential average over 5 minutes. Load on the interface as a fraction of 255 (255/255 is completely saturated), calculated as an exponential average over 5 minutes. Encapsulation method assigned to interface. Type of Address Resolution Protocol assigned. Indicates whether loopback is set or not. Indicates whether keepalives are set or not. Number of hours, minutes, and seconds since the last packet was successfully received by an interface and processed locally on the router. Useful for knowing when a dead interface failed. This counter is updated only when packets are process switched, not when packets are fast switched. Number of hours, minutes, and seconds since the last packet was successfully transmitted by the interface. Useful for knowing when a dead interface failed. This counter is updated only when packets are process switched, not when packets are fast switched. Number of hours, minutes, and seconds (or never) since the interface was last reset because of a transmission that took too long. When the number of hours in any of the “last” fields exceeds 24 hours, the number of days and hours is printed. If that field overflows, asterisks are printed.

Field Last clearing

Description Time at which the counters that measure cumulative statistics (such as number of bytes transmitted and received) shown in this report were last reset to zero. Note that variables that might affect routing (for example, load and reliability) are not cleared when the counters are cleared. *** indicates the elapsed time is too large to be displayed. 0:00:00 indicates the counters were cleared more than 231 ms (and less than 232 ms) ago.

Output queue, input queue, Number of packets in output and input queues. Each number is followed drops by a slash, the maximum size of the queue, and the number of packets dropped because of a full queue. 5 minute input rate, 5 minute output rate Average number of bits and packets transmitted per second in the last 5 minutes. If the interface is not in promiscuous mode, it senses network traffic it sends and receives (rather than all network traffic). The 5-minute input and output rates should be used only as an approximation of traffic per second during a given 5-minute period. These rates are exponentially weighted averages with a time constant of 5 minutes. A period of four time constants must pass before the average will be within two percent of the instantaneous rate of a uniform stream of traffic over that period. packets input bytes no buffer Total number of error-free packets received by the system. Total number of bytes, including data and MAC encapsulation, in the error-free packets received by the system. Number of received packets discarded because there was no buffer space in the main system. Compare with ignored count. Broadcast storms on Ethernets and bursts of noise on serial lines are often responsible for no input buffer events. Total number of broadcast or multicast packets received by the interface. Number of packets that are discarded because they are smaller than the minimum packet size of the medium. For instance, any Ethernet packet that is less than 64 bytes is considered a runt. Number of packets that are discarded because they exceed the maximum packet size of the medium. For example, any Ethernet packet that is greater than 1518 bytes is considered a giant. Includes runts, giants, no buffer, CRC, frame, overrun, and ignored counts. Other input-related errors can also cause the input errors count to be increased, and some datagrams may have more than one error; therefore, this sum may not balance with the sum of enumerated input error counts. Cyclic redundancy checksum generated by the originating LAN station or far-end device does not match the checksum calculated from the data received. On a LAN, this usually indicates noise or transmission problems on the LAN interface or the LAN bus itself. A high number of CRCs is usually the result of collisions or a station transmitting bad data.

Description Number of packets received incorrectly having a CRC error and a noninteger number of octets. On a LAN, this is usually the result of collisions or a malfunctioning Ethernet device. Number of times the receiver hardware was unable to hand received data to a hardware buffer because the input rate exceeded the receiver’s ability to handle the data.

Dribble bit error indicates that a frame is slightly too long. This frame error counter is incremented just for informational purposes; the router accepts the frame. Total number of messages transmitted by the system. Total number of bytes, including data and MAC encapsulation, transmitted by the system. Number of times that the transmitter has been running faster than the router can handle. This may never be reported on some interfaces.

Note that this may not balance with the sum of the enumerated output errors, as some datagrams may have more than one error, and others may have errors that do not fall into any of the specifically tabulated categories. Number of messages retransmitted because of an Ethernet collision. A packet that collides is counted only once in output packets. Number of times an interface has been completely reset. This can happen if packets queued for transmission were not sent within several seconds. On a serial line, this can be caused by a malfunctioning modem that is not supplying the transmit clock signal, or by a cable problem. If the system notices that the carrier detect line of a serial interface is up, but the line protocol is down, it periodically resets the interface in an effort to restart it. Interface resets can also occur when an interface is looped back or shut down. Number of times a Type 2 Ethernet controller was restarted because of errors. The transmit jabber timer expired.

Description Average number of bits and packets transmitted per second in the last 5 minutes. If the interface is not in promiscuous mode, it senses network traffic it sends and receives (rather than all network traffic). The 5-minute input and output rates should be used only as an approximation of traffic per second during a given 5-minute period. These rates are exponentially weighted averages with a time constant of 5 minutes. A period of four time constants must pass before the average will be within two percent of the instantaneous rate of a uniform stream of traffic over that period.

packets input bytes no buffer

Total number of error-free packets received by the system. Total number of bytes, including data and MAC encapsulation, in the error-free packets received by the system. Number of received packets discarded because there was no buffer space in the main system. Compare with ignored count. Broadcast storms on Ethernets and bursts of noise on serial lines are often responsible for no input buffer events. Total number of broadcast or multicast packets received by the interface. Number of packets that are discarded because they are smaller than the minimum packet size of the medium. For instance, any Ethernet packet that is less than 64 bytes is considered a runt.

Description Number of received packets ignored by the interface because the interface hardware ran low on internal buffers. These buffers are different than the system buffers mentioned previously in the buffer description. Broadcast storms and bursts of noise can cause the ignored count to be increased. Number of packets whose receipt was aborted. Dribble bit error indicates that a frame is slightly too long. This frame error counter is incremented for informational purposes; the router accepts the frame. Total number of messages transmitted by the system. Total number of bytes, including data and MAC encapsulation, transmitted by the system. Number of times that the transmitter has been running faster than the router can handle. This may never be reported on some interfaces. Sum of all errors that prevented the final transmission of datagrams out of the interface being examined. Note that this may not balance with the sum of the enumerated output errors, as some datagrams may have more than one error, and others may have errors that do not fall into any of the specifically tabulated categories.

This can happen if packets queued for transmission were not sent within several seconds. On a serial line, this can be caused by a malfunctioning modem that is not supplying the transmit clock signal, or by a cable problem. If the system notices that the carrier detect line of a serial interface is up, but the line protocol is down, it periodically resets the interface in an effort to restart it.

Values are: not supported or supported. When the value is supported, the display indicates whether full-duplex is enabled or disabled. When enabled, the state of the FDX negotiation process is displayed. The negotiation states only relate to the full-duplex negotiation process. You must also ensure that the interface is up and working by looking at other fields in the show interfaces fddi command such as line protocol and RMT. Negotiation states are:

idle—Interface is working but not in full-duplex mode yet. If persistent, it could mean that the interface did not meet all negotiation conditions (for example, there are more than two stations in the ring). request—Interface is working but not in full-duplex mode yet. If persistent, it could mean that the remote interface does not support full-duplex or full-duplex is not enabled on the interface. confirm—Transient state. operation—Negotiations completed successfully, and both stations are operating in full-duplex mode.

It is computed as the ratio of the “comp paks in” statistic to the “seconds since last clear” statistic. The “Comp bytes out” statistic gives the resulting number of compressed bytes output by the CAIM. A time average of the number of packets per second containing uncompressed data which were successfully compressed by the CAIM. The “comp bytes in / uncomp bytes out” and “uncomp bytes in / comp bytes out” statistics do not include this header. The “uncomp bytes out” statistic gives the resulting number of uncompressed bytes output by the CAIM. Note that each packet submitted for compression or decompression has a small header at the front which is always clear data and hence never compressed nor decompressed. comp paks/sec out comp paks/sec in Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-271 . uncomp paks/sec in A time average of the number of packets per second containing uncompressed data submitted as input to the CAIM for compression.

It is computed as the ratio of the “comp paks out” statistic to the “seconds since last clear” compressed by the CAIM. comp bytes in / uncomp bytes out Summarizes the decompression performance of the CAIM. If one forms the ratio of “uncomp bytes in” to “comp bytes out”. A time average of the number of packets per second containing compressed data submitted as input to the CAIM for decompression. The average decompression ratio achieved can be computed as the ratio of “uncomp bytes out” to “comp bytes in”. The “comp bytes in” statistic gives the total number of compressed bytes submitted to the CAIM for decompression. It is computed as the ratio of the “comp paks out” statistic to the “seconds since last clear” statistic. The “uncomp bytes in” statistic gives the total number of uncompressed bytes submitted to the CAIM for compression.

It is therefore recommend that one issue a “clear count” command before sampling these statistics. the “bits/sec” statistics become inaccurate. “comp paks/sec in”. It is computed as the ratio of the “uncomp bytes in” statistic. “comp paks/sec out”. to the “seconds since last clear” statistic. It is again recommended that one issue the “clear count” command before sampling the “bits/sec” statistics. Also. It is computed as the ratio of the “comp bytes in” statistic. “comp paks in”.

this statistic should always read zero. In normal operation. This statistic counts the number of times this encapsulation adjustment failed. for packets to be processed by the CAIM. Normally. It can be reenabled by issuing the clear aim element-number command.

A nonzero value indicates that we are short in a specific memory resource referred to as “paktypes”. Hence. there is plenty of memory available for holding CAIM results. In normal operation. This statistic indicates that the CAIM is being overloaded with requests for compression/decompression. Each interface configured for compression opens two contexts. if nonzero. This statistic. Flag indicating if the CAIM is disabled or not. or perhaps a memory leak. this statistic should be zero. Counts the total number of times in which the CAIM was forced to drop a packet it was asked to compress or decompress. and the remaining statistics summarize these reasons.

In normal operation. and so normally this statistic should show zero. Counts the total number of times the CAIM needed to allocate memory for buffers but could not obtain memory. Note that the normal mode of operation is “non-source limited”. Zero implies disabled. and the output data length was reported with a length of zero. In non source limited mode. In source limited mode. Gives the number of “contexts” which are currently open on the CAIM. Flag indicating if the CAIM is in “source limited” mode. this statistic should always read zero. This can happen for a number of reasons. Each packet compressed or decompressed involves an adjustment of the encapsulation of the packet between the LZS-DCP. Counts the number of times in which the CAIM performed either a compress or decompression operation.

was no longer around. it is an indication of a software bug. only to find that the software “context”. A nonzero value in this statistic indicates a serious malfunction in the CAIM. This statistic can be incremented at times when a serial interface is administratively disabled. A nonzero value for this statistic is thus a serious indication of a memory leak or other backup in buffer usage somewhere in the system. A nonzero value indicates a software bug. Incremented when the CAIM reports error in a compression or decompression operation. This statistic is incremented when the CAIM produces results in a different order than that in which the requests were submitted. no replace num seq errs num desc errs cmds complete bad reqs dead cntxts Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-274 . This is a normal and tolerable. Each time a compression or decompression operation is completed and the resultant data fill up a buffer. the CAIM software allocates a new buffer to replace the buffer filled. This occurs only if a severely scattered packet (with more than 64 “particles”. Reports the number of compression/decompression commands completed. Reports the number of compression/decompression requests that the CAIM software determined it could not possibly handle. then the packet involved in this operation is dropped and the old buffer reused. In such a case the packet is dropped. If no buffers are available. If the timing is right. Another situation in which this can occur is when a Frame Relay DLC goes down. the CAIM may be right in the middle of operating on a packet from that interface when the disable takes effect. Such errors are most likely bus errors. When the CAIM operation completes. Packets involved in such errors are dropped. If this statistic is not steadily increasing or decreasing when a steady stream of compression/decompression is expected.Interface Commands show pas caim Table 45 show pas caim Output Values and Descriptions (continued) Value fallbacks Description Number of times the data compression AIM card could not use its pre-allocated buffers to store compression results and had to “fallback” to using a common buffer pool. This statistic should steadily increase in normal operation (assuming that the CAIM is continuously being asked to perform compression or decompression). or separate buffers of data) is handed to the CAIM to compress or decompress. or stream sourcing the packet. In normal operation there is plenty of memory available for these buffers. and they indicate a serious malfunction in the CAIM. This statistic thus represents the number of times such an allocation failure occurred. Number of times a packet was successfully compressed or decompressed. This statistic should not increment during normal operation. this is an indication of a malfunctioning CAIM. it finds that the interface has been disabled and all “compression contexts” pertaining to that interface have been deleted. If this statistic is incrementing when no such situations exist.

This involves the allocation of a “paktype” structure for the packet. that is. This can indicate that the CAIM is being overtaxed or that the serial interface is overtaxed and being forced to drop output packets. no further packets may be placed on it. Such packets are requeued onto the hold queue. A nonzero value of this statistic indicates that the CAIM is being overtaxed. If this statistic is not incremented when expected. enq errors rx pkt drops tx pkt drops dequeues requeues drops disabled clears # ints # purges Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-275 . then it must undergo an operation called “reparenting”. Thereafter. any increase in this statistic is an indication that the other side of the serial link detected bad data or gaps in the compressed packets being passed to it. If no paktype structures are available. A nonzero value of this statistic therefore also indicates that the CAIM is being overtaxed. it is being asked to compress/decompress at a rate exceeding its capabilities. then the packet is dropped and this statistic is incremented. Indicates the number of interrupts serviced by the CAIM software. Closely related to the “no paks” statistic. This statistic is incremented a couple of times at startup. Indicates the total number of packets which were submitted for compression or decompression. which were destined to be decompressed. it indicates a severe CAIM malfunction. Indicates the number of times the CAIM was reset using the clear aim element-number command. Indicates the total number of packets that were removed from the hold queue. The hold queue for the CAIM is limited in length. and hence signalled a request to purge compression history in order to get back in synchronization.

Usage Guidelines This command helps ensure that routers keep track of FDDI upstream and downstream neighbors. The default value is equal to the number of FDDI interfaces installed in the router. particularly when a router includes more than one FDDI interface. use the smt-queue-threshold command in global configuration mode. Command Modes Global configuration Command History Release 10. the queue is decreased by one: Router(Config)# smt-queue-threshold 10 Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference IR-305 . Defaults The default threshold value is equal to the number of FDDI interfaces installed in the router. Caution Use this command carefully because the SMT buffer is charged to the inbound interface (input hold queue) until the frame is completely processed by the system. As SMT frames are processed by the system. In FDDI. To restore the queue to the default. Discarding SMT NIF frames can cause the router to lose its upstream or downstream neighbor.0 Modification This command was introduced. Acceptable values are positive integers. upstream and downstream neighbors are determined by transmitting and receiving SMT Neighbor Information Frames (NIFs). Setting this value to a high limit can impact buffer usage and the ability of the router to receive routable packets or routing updates. smt-queue-threshold number no smt-queue-threshold Syntax Description number Number of buffers used to store unprocessed SMT messages that are to be queued for processing. use the no form of this command.Interface Commands smt-queue-threshold smt-queue-threshold To set the maximum number of unprocessed FDDI station management (SMT) frames that will be held for processing. Examples The following example specifies that the SMT queue can hold ten messages. This occurs because the router discards incoming SMT frames if the queue is full. The router can appear to lose track of neighbors when it receives an SMT frame and the queue currently contains an unprocessed frame.

Transmitter delay is 0 microseconds Delay between outgoing frames.

Note

The interface type is only queried at startup. If the hardware changes subsequent to initial startup, the wrong type is reported. This has no adverse effect on the operation of the software. For instance, if a DCE cable is connected to a dual-mode V.35 applique after the unit has been booted, the display presented for the show interfaces command incorrectly reports attachment to a DTE device although the software recognizes the DCE interface and behaves accordingly.

show controllers pos
To display information about the POS (Packet-Over-SONET) controllers, use the show controllers pos command in privileged EXEC mode. show controllers pos [slot-number] [details]

Syntax Description

slot-number

(Optional) The chassis slot that contains the POS interface. For the Cisco 7500 series routers, use slot/port adapter/port (for example, 2/0/0). For the Cisco 12000 series routers, use slot/port (for example, 4/0). The “/” is required. If you do not specify a slot number, information for all the installed POS controllers is displayed. (Optional) In addition to the normal information displayed by the show controllers pos command, the details keyword provides a hexadecimal and ASCII “dump” of the path trace buffer.

Field POS2/0/0 LOF LOS

Description Slot number of the POS interface. Section loss of frame is detected when a severely error framing (SEF) defect on the incoming SONET signal persist for 3 milliseconds. Section loss of signal is detected when an all-zeros pattern on the incoming SONET signal lasts 19 plus or minus 3 microseconds or longer. This defect might also be reported if the received signal level drops below the specified threshold. Bit interleaved parity error reported. For B1, the bit interleaved parity error report is calculated by comparing the BIP-8 code with the BIP-8 code extracted from the B1 byte of the following frame. Differences indicate that section level bit errors have occurred. For B2, the bit interleaved parity error report is calculated by comparing the BIP-8/24 code with the BIP-8 code extracted from the B2 byte of the following frame. Differences indicate that line level bit errors have occurred. For B3, the bit interleaved parity error report is calculated by comparing the BIP-8 code with the BIP-8 code extracted from the B3 byte of the following frame. Differences indicate that path level bit errors have occurred.

BIP(B1)/BIP(B2)/BIP(B3)

AIS

Alarm indication signal. Line alarm indication signal is sent by the section terminating equipment (STE) to alert the downstream line terminating equipment (LTE) that a LOS or LOF defect has been detected on the incoming SONET section. Path alarm indication signal is sent by the LTE to alert the downstream path terminating equipment (PTE) that it has detected a defect on its incoming line signal.

RDI

Remote defect indication. Line remote defect indication is reported by the downstream LTE when it detects LOF, LOS, or AIS. Path remote defect indication is reported by the downstream PTE when it detects a defect on the incoming signal.

Field FEBE

Description Far end block errors. Line far end block error (accumulated from the M0 or M1 byte) is reported when the downstream LTE detects BIP(B2) errors. Path far end block error (accumulated from the G1 byte) is reported when the downstream PTE detects BIP(B3) errors.

LOP NEWPTR PSE NSE Active Defects Active Alarms Alarm reporting enabled for APS COAPS PSBF

Path loss of pointer is reported as a result of an invalid pointer (H1, H2) or an excess number of new data flag (NDF) enabled indications. Inexact count of the number of times the SONET framer has validated a new SONET pointer value (H1, H2). Inexact count of the number of times the SONET framer has detected a positive stuff event in the received pointer (H1, H2). Inexact count of the number of times the SONET framer has detected a negative stuff event in the received pointer (H1, H2). List of all currently active SONET defects. List of current Alarms as enforced by Sonet Alarm Hierarchy. List of alarms that you enabled reporting for with the pos report interface command. Automatic protection switching. An inexact count of the number of times a new APS value has been detected in the K1, K2 bytes. An inexact count of the number of times a protection switching byte failure has been detected (no three consecutive SONET frames contain identical K1 bytes). Protection switching byte failure state. Contents of the received and transmitted K1 and K2 bytes. The two S bits received in the last H1 byte. The value extracted from the SONET path signal label byte (C2). SONET clock is recovered using information in the SONET overhead. RDOOL is an inexact count of the number of times Receive Data Out Of Lock has been detected which indicates the clock recovery phased lock loop is unable to lock to the receive stream. SONET path trace buffer is used to communicate information regarding the remote hostname, interface name/number and IP address. This is a Cisco-proprietary use of the J1 (path trace) byte. List of the bit-error rate (BER) thresholds you configured with the pos threshold interface command. List of threshold crossing alarms (TCA) you configured with the pos threshold interface command.

Dial Shelf Management Commands dial-tdm-clock

dial-tdm-clock
To configure the clock source and priority of the clock source used by the time-division multiplexing (TDM) bus on the dial shelf of the Cisco AS5800, use the dial-tdm-clock global configuration command. To return the clock source and priority to the default values, use the no form of the command. dial-tdm-clock priority number {external {e1 | t1} [120ohm] | freerun | trunk-slot slot port port} no dial-tdm-clock priority number {external {e1 | t1} [120ohm] | freerun | trunk-slot slot port port}

Syntax Description

priority number external {e1 | t1} [120ohm]

Specify the priority of the clock source. The range is 1 to 50. Priority 1 is the highest priority and 50 is the lowest. Specify the priority of an external clock source. The external clock source is connected to the front panel of the dial shelf controller (DSC) card. Specify priority of the E1 (2.048 MHz) or T1 (1.54 MHz) external clock source. The default value of the external coaxial cable impedance is 75 ohm. Specify the 120ohm option if a 120 ohm coaxial cable is connected. Specify the priority of the local oscillator clock source. Specify the priority of the trunk card to provide the clock source. The slot number is from 0 to 5 (these are the only slots capable of providing clock sources). Specify the controller number on the trunk used to provide the clock source. The port number is from 0 to 28. The T1 and E1 trunk cards each have 12 ports. The T3 trunk card has 28 ports.

freerun trunk-slot slot

port port

Defaults

If no clock sources are specified, the software selects the first available good clock source on a trunk port.

Command Modes

Global configuration

Command History

Release 11.3(2)AA

Modification This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

The TDM bus in the backplane on the dial shelf must be synchronized to the T1/E1 clocks on the trunk cards. The Dial Shelf Controller (DSC) card on the dial shelf provides hardware logic to accept multiple clock sources as input and use one of them as the primary source to generate a stable, PPL synchronized output clock. The input clock can be any of the following sources:
• • •

Trunk port in slots 0 through 5 (up to 12 can be selected (two per slot) An external T1 or E1 clock source fed directly through a connector on the DSC card A free running clock from an oscillator in the clocking hardware on the DSC card

Cisco IOS Interface and Hardware Management Command Reference

IR-583

Dial Shelf Management Commands dial-tdm-clock

The clock commands are listed in the configuration file with the highest priority listed first. If the current primary clock source is good, specifying another clock source of higher priority does not cause the clock source to switch to the higher priority clock source. The new higher priority clock source is used as a backup clock source. This prevents switching of the clock source as you enter multiple dial-tdm-clock priority configuration commands in random order. Also, it is important not to disturb the existing clock source as long as it is good. To force the new higher priority clock source to take over from a currently good primary clock source, configure the new clock source and use the no dial-tdm-clock priority command to remove the current primary clock source. To display the current primary and backup clocks along with their priorities, use the show dial-shelf clocks EXEC commands.

Examples

In the following example, an external clock source is set at priority 1 and the trunk card in slot 4 port 1 is set at priority 5:
router(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 1 external t1 router(config)# dial-tdm-clock priority 5 trunk-slot 4 port 1 router(config)# exit
