Introduction
This chapter provides an overview for managing Optimux-34 using the
RADview/TDM SNMP Optimux-34 management solution. It introduces the
graphical user interface. It is assumed that you are familiar with basic
RADview/TDM operations. For more information about basic RADview-NMS
operations, refer to the RADview/TDM (PC) or (UNIX) User's Manual.
1.1
Optimux-34 Overview
Optimux-34 provides a simple, flexible, and cost-effective solution for
transporting multiple E1 channels, high-speed, and Ethernet traffic over an E3 link
to distances of up to 110 km (68 miles). The E3 link is available with multimode,
single mode fiber, single mode over single fiber, or SFP-based interfaces. It
supports redundant and modular main links and power supplies.
Optimux-34 provides 16 E1 channels, high speed and Ethernet traffic, into one E3
copper or fiber optic link.
Optimux-34 provides optional wide-range modular redundant power supplies. The
optional second main link provides backup using automatic switchover upon link.
The optional second power supply provides power redundancy for fail-safe
operation.
Optimux-34 has various optical interfaces (based on SFP interfaces) available for
both active and backup main link(s).
Optimux-34 transmits the clock of each E1 channel independently.
As a local device, Optimux-34 can be connected to an Optimux-34 device or to
Optimux-XLE1.
1.1
RADview/TDM Optimux-34 Overview

Using the Graphical User Interface (GUI)
From the Optimux-34 View window, you can configure and monitor the entire
Optimux-34 system elements.
Optimux-34 View Window
The RADview/TDM SNMP for Optimux-34 View window displays a dynamic
graphical representation of a local Optimux-34 front panel and a connected
remote Optimux-34 standalone front panel. The view includes the links/ports,
their operational and communication status, and the device’s LED indicators’
status.
Note
• The IP Address of the Remote unit, which appears at the top of the screen, is
shown similar to the address of the Local unit, although each unit has a
different address. You can see different addresses only in the caption under
a SNMPc (PC environment), after you have connected a link between the two
relevant icons on the SNMPc map.
• The remote device display will be according to the far-end type. If the far-end
type is unknown, the NMS will display a box with only the word “Unmanaged”
within it.
• If the remote unit is disconnected, all remote device ports will not be
selectable and the line icon connecting the local and remote devices will be
“broken”, the display is zoomed with an “Unmanaged” message on it.
• If the local unit is a card, then only the local unit appears in the Optimux-34
window.
• If the local unit is a standalone, then the remote unit also appears in the
Optimux-34 window.

Performance Management
5.1
Introduction
This chapter discusses how to monitor the performance of the Optimux-34
system using RADview/TDM Optimux-34.
5.2
Polling the Agent
Polling the agent updates the Optimux-34 device status. You can execute either
manual or automatic polling of the Optimux-34 system. Device components are
automatically polled once every minute. However, you can also manually poll and
update the status of the components.
To manually poll the agent components:
1. In the Optimux-34 View window, select the Optimux-34 system (as described
in Selecting the System in Chapter 2).
2. On the menu bar, click Configuration > Poll Agent.
The components are polled and their status is updated immediately.
Selecting this entry will cause immediate polling of the Agent.

Security Management
This chapter discusses how to manage security through assigning access
authorizations for the Optimux-34 system using RADview/TDM.
The basic tasks involved in security management or access authorization
management are:
•
Configuring SNMP
•
Configuring Management Access.
RADview/OV on Unix supports the Security feature. Security defines different
types of users:
•
Administrator
•
Operator
•
Technician
•
Monitor.
Each user type has different access permission(s) to the product's application
data. Some of them have Read-Write access to all or part of the menus and
dialog boxes; others have only Read-Only access to part of the menus/dialog
boxes. The menu looks the same for all users. If you are a user that has only
Read-Only access and attempts to enter a dialog box, select a menu entry that
you do not have permission to, or to press the <Set> button (or a similar ReadWrite one), a message box will then be displayed stating that you have no access
to the selected entry/dialog box/operation.
When a Read-Write menu entry or a dialog box is allowed (to be <Set>) for a
Technician, the paragraph detailing this entry/dialog box will include (T) at the
end.
When a Read-Write menu entry or dialog box is allowed (to be Set) for a Monitor,
the paragraph detailing this entry/dialog box, will include at the end: (M). In this
case, Technician is also allowed to perform Set.
<Print> and <Refresh> are buttons that are enabled for Monitor users.
6.1
Configuring SNMP
RADview/TDM allows you to view and modify SNMP settings; enabling you to
specify the management station(s) that can transmit or receive Optimux-34

Performing Loopback Tests
Optimux-34 allows you to run local and remote diagnostic loopback testing for
ports.
Monitoring performance in the Optimux-34 consists of performing diagnostics or
loopback tests. You can perform loopback tests on Optimux-34 ports.
The Diagnostics menu provides access to the port level diagnostic test options.
You can run loopback tests for the following types of ports:
•
E1 channel
•
Link
•
V.35.
Figure 7-12. Port Level Diagnostics Menu
The Loopback Test command enables you to:
•
View all loopback tests that are currently running on the local and remote
devices
•
Run a loopback test on a link.
You cannot run:
•
A loopback test on a channel if a loopback test is already running on a link
•
A loopback test on a link if a loopback test is already running on a channel
•
A remote loopback test on a channel if a remote loopback test is already
running at the opposite end of the channel.
To run a loopback test:
1. In the Optimux-34 window, select the relevant (E1. Link, or V.35) port on the
local or remote device.
2. On the menu bar, click Diagnostics > Loopback Test.
The Loopback dialog box appears, showing the current loopback status of
the selected port.

if a loopback test is already running on a specific port, you can select only
No Loopback for this port.
If the Administrative Status of the selected port is down, then no
loopback will be available. A message will be displayed at the status bar
saying “Diagnostics are not available for interface that its Administrative
Status is Down.”
Upon clicking <Apply>, the NMS checks if the value of Test Duration is
within the valid range. If not, the following message will be displayed on
Status Bar: "Test Duration (min.) value should be between 1 and 255"
and the operation will not be performed.
