Introduction to TEAM Core
Overview of TEAM Management
TEAM software is a group of HP OpenView applications that employ the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) to configure and control the operation of a wide variety of GDC
product cards housed in SpectraComm shelves. The TEAM Core applications described in this
manual perform functions that extend beyond the product-specific TEAM applications, enabling
the individual applications to function together in a seamless, integrated manner. Table 1-1 lists the
integrated TEAM applications which employ TEAM Core.
•
The TEAM Core application configures the SCM for the desired functioning as the SNMP
agent for units in its shelf. TEAM Core also controls the shared HP OpenView functions used
by the various TEAM applications to discover and map specific units.
•
The TEAM applications control and communicate with their associated units by means of the
SpectraComm Manager (SCM) card that occupies the shelf with those units.
Specialized TEAM Functions
•
In SC 5000 systems, TEAM Core provides Shelf Configuration which determine the operation
of the data highways and timeslots employed by the SC 5000 system. TEAM applications in an
SC 5000 system control the Multiple Data Set Emulator (DSE) cards. These units perform Data
Terminal Equipment (DTE) interface functions and use the data highways on the SpectraComm
shelf backplane to exchange data with a Line Terminating Unit (LTU) card.
•
In UAS 7000 systems, TEAM Core coordinates backplane functions, while the associated
TEAM 7000 applications use TEAM Core for Discovery and Mapping.

Introduction to TEAM Core
TEAM Core Applications
SpectraComm Manager Card
TEAM Core software manages and communicates with a SpectraComm Manager (SCM) using
SNMP to comprehensively manage the network. The SCM acts as the SNMP agent through which
TEAM management applications communicate with units and other compatible equipment. The
SCM receives SNMP Set and Get commands from the TEAM Core and sends equivalent
commands to the selected unit via the backplane. It also generates Traps, which are unscheduled,
unsolicited messages sent to the management application in response to events occurring at the unit,
especially alarm conditions. Management communications are directed to the SCM card Internet
Protocol (IP) address. From there the SCM card uses a slot addressing scheme to relay commands
and responses between TEAM applications and hardware components over the SpectraComm shelf
backplane. The SCM is transparent to the user since the TEAM applications operate as though they
were communicating directly with the hardware units.
The bus structure of the SpectraComm shelf backplane allows the SCM card to act as a shared
management agent for compatible components installed in the shelf. Daisy chain cables can extend
the backplane bus to a second shelf. This use of the SCM as a staging point for SNMP activity
conserves the number of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses required for management functions.
Network Topography with TEAM Core
TEAM Core integrates with the OpenView IP node discovery application to discover and map
system and equipment objects. TEAM Core employs the SCM to perform both of these functions
within the HP OpenView framework. Through Discovery and Mapping, an OpenView Windows
(OVW) database is built which defines the topology of the network (see Chapter 2 for details).
TEAM Core Applications
TEAM Core software is several separate applications which may be grouped by their TEAM Core
function and what menus provide access to them. Note that some applications are available via any
menu. Detailed information and procedures are provided in the chapters referenced in Table 1-2.

Chapter 2:
Discovery & Mapping
Discovery
The Discovery function searches for devices on the network and is integrated with the OpenView
IP node discovery application. Once an SCM card is discovered, the SCM is polled using the Simple
Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The information gathered is used to build objects in the
OpenView Windows (OVW) database. The objects represent cards in the shelf being monitored by
the SCM.
Once devices are discovered, the network topology is displayed in hierarchical object maps that
proceed from general to specific: Root Map, Universe Map, Shelf Map, Element Map, Connection
Map and Circuit Map. Each map reveals a more detailed view of a smaller part of the
communications system.
Auto-Discovery
TEAM Core uses the Auto-discovery as the default Discovery process. In this process, TEAM Core
polls each new device it encounters in order to identify SCM devices. Once an SCM card is
detected, Auto-discovery conducts further polling through the SCM using SNMP to build objects
and construct maps in the OpenView Windows (OVW) database. The objects represent the SCMmanaged cards and devices in the system.
Manual Discover
There can be situations where the size of the network or the data traffic required for auto-discovery
becomes a burden on the communication network, reducing the throughput of payload data. In such
situations, the user can disable Auto-discovery so that TEAM Core can activate a manual discovery
process instead. Manual discovery allows the user to identify a specific SCM to the TEAM
application, thereby instructing the application to poll the SCM and construct a shelf submap for it
and the devices it controls. Manual discovery introduces less data traffic on the network by
requesting only the routing tables of the specified unit.
Note
The default Auto-discovery is disabled by turning off HP OpenView polling. This is accomplished by
disabling the TEAM Core netmon function or through the Options->Network Polling
Configuration function. Disabling Auto-discovery by either method activates TEAM Core’s manual
discovery process, described below.
Note
In environments, such as DDS I that use the same channel for both primary and management data, the
Discovery and Alarm Synchronization functions can interfere with primary data flow while they are running.

Discovery & Mapping
Manual Discovery Procedures
Enable Manual Discovery by Stopping Netmon
Within the TEAM application, operation of the auto-discovery process is governed by a Local
Registration File (LRF) called discover.lrf that is located in the /usr/OV/lrf directory.
To disable auto-discovery by turning off netmon you need to modify that file as follows:
1. Open a shell tool on your workstation.
2. Stop the Shelf Discovery process by typing:
/opt/OV/bin/ovstop shelf_discovery
3. Make a backup copy of the discover.lrf file so that it can be reloaded later in its original
form if needed.
4. Load the discover.lrf file into an editor so that you can modify it.
5. Locate the following two lines in the file
/opt/OV/bin/shelf_discovery:
OVs_YES_START:trapd,ovwdb,netmon::OVs_WELL_BEHAVED:15
6. Delete ,netmon from the second line and save the file. The two lines should now read:
/opt/OV/bin/shelf_discovery:
OVs_YES_START:trapd,ovwdb::OVs_WELL_BEHAVED:15
7. Update the process configuration by running OpenView Add Object on the discover.lrf file by
typing:
/opt/OV/bin/ovaddobj /usr/OV/lrf/discover.lrf
8. Restart the Shelf Discovery process by typing:
/opt/OV/bin/ovstart shelf_discovery
9. Proceed to the Perform Manual Discovery procedure.
Enable Manual Discovery by Turning Off OpenView Polling
The auto-discovery process is part of the larger Status Polling procedure carried out by the HP
OpenView software. To disable auto-discovery by controlling OpenView polling, carry out the
following steps:
1. Display the Universe submap.
2. From the Options menu, select Network Polling Configuration:IP.
A dialog box appears.
3. Suspend all automatic polling by deselecting Perform Status Polling.
Suspend only polling for the discovery process by deselecting Discover New Modes.

Perform Manual Discovery
After disabling auto-discovery as described above, an SCM can be manually discovered. Before this
can occur, the SCM must be configured with the appropriate community name and must be
available for communication. To perform manual discovery carry out the following steps:
1. At the Options menu, select SNMP Configuration.
2. Make sure that the SCM is showing the proper Community Configuration.
3. Make sure communication is possible with the SCM by pinging it and issuing an snmpwalk
command. If this does not work, check the routing tables in the workstation to make sure there
is a route available to the SCM.
4. Display the IP submap of the segment to which the SCM is connected.
5. From the Edit menu, select Add Objects.
6. In the resulting window select the Computer symbol class.
7. Modify the symbol by using the middle mouse button to drag the SCM Symbol Subclass onto it
on the IP submap.
8. In the Add Objects dialog box, enter the label assigned to the SCM.
9. Set the IP Map Object Attributes. Be sure to enter both the hostname and the IP address.
10. When the process is completed, the Shelf Discovery application polls the SCM and draws the
shelf topology based on the information it receives from the SCM.
Note
If a valid hostname is not available, enter the IP address of the SCM in the Hostname field.
Note
The Read and Write Community Names which are set in HPOV SNMP Configuration must match the
configured Community Names on the SCM. If they are incorrect, Discovery is unable to poll or update the
SCM. The SNMP Configuration selection appears in the Options menu of the HPOV menu bar which appears
at the top of all map windows.

Mapping
After discovery of TEAM-compatible hardware systems in the network, a network topology is
created from the OVW database. This topology is described by a series of hierarchical object maps
that proceed from general to specific: Root Map, Universe Map, Shelf Map, Element Map,
Connection Map and Circuit Map. Each map reveals a more detailed view of a smaller part of the
communications system, as described below and in Figure 2-1.
Root Map
The Root map is at the top of the hierarchy, containing the TEAM icon and the IP Internet icon. The
TEAM icon accesses all applications integrated with the TEAM Core. The IP Internet icon accesses
a map of the workstation’s communication environment. The Root map can also contain a TEAM
Standalone icon if there are standalone applications installed on the workstation (TEAM 553,
TEAM 540, etc.) and the devices they control. These standalone applications communicate
individually with the workstation and do not employ the SCM card or the shared core functions.
Universe Map
Open the Universe map by double-clicking the TEAM icon in the Root map. The Universe map
consists of one shelf icon for each SCM-equipped shelf communicating with the workstation. The
Universe map can show lines between devices and/or shelves, designating that they are linked or
have been configured by the user to be linked (refer to Chapter 2 and Chapter 4 for procedures).
The Universe map can show the following links:
•
a dedicated remote device joined by a line to the shelf containing its master unit
•
a shelf-resident devices, such as the SC 521 DSU, joined by a line to a dedicated remote device
•
a shelf joined by a line to other shelves
•
a standalone remote device joined by a line to shelf devices appearing in the Universe map
Shelf Map
Open a Shelf submap by double-clicking on its shelf icon in the Universe map. The Shelf submap
is generated from the OVW database. It is an integrated application under HPOV which displays
the shelf and its installed individual devices. Since it is an OpenView appication, the Shelf map runs
only when executed by OpenView, starting up when OpenView Windows starts. In the Shelf map,
each TEAM compatible device has an selectable, octagonal device icon at the bottom of the slot
image. The Shelf map is used to perform the following functions:
•
update the topology view in response to received traps
•
create and maintain shelf background and shelf content images
•
open shelf icons and associated submaps (described in the following paragraphs)
Connection Map
A Connection map is opened by double-clicking the line that connects two shelves in the Universe
map. This map displays all individual circuits established between the two shelves. Each circuit is
represented by the icons for its devices, connected to each other by lines that represent the
communication path. Icons are automatically added as new circuits are configured.

Circuit Map
The Circuit map is created by the user to displays the link between two devices and to provide a
convenient point of access for launching applications at both ends of a link. If the same shelf
resident device type is at both ends of the link, the two devices can be selected together so that
applications for both are launched by a single menu selection. If the circuit map is of a shelf resident
device linked to a standalone device, their applications have to be launched separately.
Note
A Circuit map should not be created for devices that are associated by means of an Add (or Wake Up) Remote
configuration function.

Individual Device icons
A device icon represents a specific unit in a shelf. Click on an individual device icon to activate a
menu bar for TEAM applications specific to the selected unit. The user can select multiple icons
of the same type in order to launch multiple application windows simultaneously. A device icon
with a border will open to a Circuit submap if one has been created. A device icon without a border
indicates a unit with a dedicated remote and an associated Element submap. Double-click on any
device icon to launch the selected unit’s Front Panel display or Element submap.
Element Submap
Double-clicking on any device icon without a border opens the Element map. This map which
displays the link between the master device in the shelf and its remote(s). The link can be point-topoint or multipoint. The remotes in an Element map are devices that cannot communicate
independently with the TEAM controller workstation. The Element map is created automatically
by the configuration function that associates the remote(s) with the master unit.
Dedicated Remote icon
Dedicated standalone remote units are user-configured to be linked with shelf-resident master units.
They are TEAM software controlled only when linked with a master unit. Double-click a dedicated
remote icon to open the unit’s Front Panel. The icon is labeled with the slot:line:drop address. The
slot identifies the master unit in the shelf. When selected/highlighted the menu bar is active for
TEAM applications specific to the selected unit.
Power Supply Icon
Double-click the Power Supply icon to open the Power Supply Front Panel.
SCM Device icons
Double-click to open the SCM Front panel. When selected/highlighted, the menu bar is active for
SCM and Core functions.
Map Symbols
The Root symbol accesses the system in OpenView. It is the highest level in the Submap hierarchy.
This symbol is created in the OpenView Root Submap. Access the Universe submap by double
clicking on this symbol.
The Shelf symbol is the logical representation of the SpectraComm Shelf in the Network. Each
physical shelf on the network has a corresponding Shelf symbol in the Map. This symbol represents
the SCM card plus all the cards in the shelf. Access the Shelf submap by double clicking on this
symbol.
The SCM symbol represents the SCM card in the SpectraComm Shelf. This symbol is created in
two places when the SCM is discovered by netmon:

Mapping Procedures
Creating a Circuit Map
Unlike other self-generating maps that display portions of the TEAM universe, circuit maps are
created by the user. Do not create a Circuit map for master and dedicated remote devices that are
associated by means of an Add (or Wake Up) Remote configuration function. The configuration
function automatically creates an Element map for those devices.
To create a Circuit map:
1. Open the two maps that contain the ends of the circuit to be mapped. At least one of those two
maps must be a Shelf map. If the Circuit map is to contain a standalone device, you need to
open the TEAM Standalone icon in the Root map to access the icon for that device.
2. Select the shelf resident device that is to be one end of the circuit and the basis of the map. If
both ends of the circuit are to be shelf resident devices, you can start with either end. If one end
is a standalone device, you must begin with the shelf resident device.
3. Select Create Circuit Submap... from the menu bar Configuration menu. A circuit
map is displayed which contains one icon to represent the selected device.
4. Select the icon for the device that is to be the second end of the link. From that device’s Edit
menu, select Copy: From This Submap.
5. Click in the new Circuit map. From its Edit menu, select Paste. When the second icon is
pasted into the map, the application automatically adds the line that represents the connection
between the two devices.
Note
The TEAM Core application will allow the user to specify any two devices as the ends of a circuit. Make sure
that the created Circuit map accurately represents a real communication link.
Shelf Map Background Image
The Shelf map application can be configured to represent the SpectraComm Shelf and its contents
in an OpenView background image. The image is synchronized with the current shelf configuration
and displays the shelf with all SCM cards in the proper locations. Shelf submap symbols are aligned
with their corresponding card image in the background image. The default configuration enables
background graphics. You can set this capability by using the Shelf Map Configuration Dialog Box,
which is accessed as follows:
For HPOVWv5.x:
Map->Maps...->Describe/Modify:Shelf Map:Configure For This Map...
For HPOVWv6.x:
Map->Properties...->Shelf Map:Configure For This Map...

Shelf Map Synchronization
Shelf Map synchronization occurs when the Shelf map application is started. During
synchronization, OpenView displays a Synchronizing message on the status line of any
displayed submaps. The Shelf map creates symbols for new network objects to update the Submaps
that use the database and to update alarm status. Note that the Shelf map will not appear in the list
of applications on opening dialog boxes until initial synchronization is completed. At that point, the
Shelf map accepts and handles incoming OpenView events and topology changes.
The Shelf map application also displays the synchronizing message during lengthy operations, such
as updating a shelf graphic. Since the Shelf map synchronizes in conjunction with other OpenView
applications, the synchronization message will also display when any one of these applications are
synchronizing.
Note
During synchronization, the Shelf map application cannot respond to some OpenView requests or user
requests, such as deleting symbols and objects.
Shelf Map Editing
The Shelf Map allows the user to Add, Delete and Cut/Paste map symbols via the OpenView user
interface. Note that these operations are not available during map synchronization. Refer to the HP
OpenView User’s Guide for additional details.
Note
•
Adding symbols involves both icon and connection symbols which are accessed via different
menu items in OpenView. The Shelf Map function does not accept additions of icon or
connection symbols on the application plane of the map. However, you can to add any symbol
to the user plane.
•
Deleting a symbol from the map also deletes it from the SCM tables.
•
The Cut/Paste function permits the pasting of a symbol in the user plane of the map. The status
of the symbol is kept synchronized with the device it represents.
Exercise care in deleting symbols from the shelf map. If a device symbol is deleted in error, power to the
device has to be cycled before the device can be discovered and its symbol restored to the map.
Shelf Submap Editing
The Shelf symbols on the TEAM Universe submap provide access to Shelf Submaps. A Shelf
Submap contains a symbol for each card in the corresponding shelf. The SCM card proxies SNMP
messages to the other cards in the shelf. It also maintains a table of all cards in the Shelf. Use the
shelf submap to delete a card or other device completely from the system, as described below.
Note
Note that physically removing a card from a shelf or disconnecting a device from the system does not delete
it from the Shelf Submap.
1. Remove the card or other device from the SCM Node Table. In the case of a central site device,
that means physically removing the card from the shelf. In the case of a remote device, that
means disconnecting it.
2. At the TEAM workstation, select the shelf from the Shelf Submap. Select the device you are
deleting, pull down the Edit menu, and select Delete.

Universe Map Editing
The TEAM Universe submap is accessed through the Root symbol in the OpenView Root Submap.
There is only one Universe submap on each map. It contains a symbol for each SpectraComm Shelf
discovered.
These Shelf symbols can be modified using the Describe/Modify Object Dialog Box. The label of
the system is the text name as assigned in the system configuration application. Events in the Events
Category application reference the shelf selection name as the source of the event.
Identifying an SCM
If HPOV Discovery is run before the TEAM application is installed, an SCM may be discovered
and added to the IP submap as a generic object. This sometimes occurs during a new system setup.
Identified as a generic object, the SCM will not be discovered or available when the TEAM
applications are subsequently installed. To properly identify the SCM, perform the following:
1. Delete the SCM generic object.
2. Ping the device so that the SCM is properly discovered and identified by an SCM object.

SCM Configuration
Overview
The SCM Configuration application provides a tool for configuring the SCM with Internetwork
Protocol (IP) addressing and routing for the SpectraComm Manager (SCM) card. This application
also specifies trap destinations. You must insure that these characteristics are properly set in order
for the SCM card to perform its communication interface functions between the TEAM application
workstation and the units it controls.
Note
In versions of the TEAM Core software prior to Version 1.3, the configuration parameters that are now
set by SCM Configuration were subject to the Agent Configuration function.
Using Configuration Templates
Configuration procedures are described below. Throughout the text descriptions in this chapter,
default values will be shown in Bold. Accompanying screens are representative and may appear
differently on your system. Once a configuration has been defined for a desired unit functionality,
it can be stored as a template on the workstation that runs the TEAM application. Any number of
templates can be stored for retrieval when particular configuration settings are needed.
The three template functions (Save, Load and Compare) are accessed via the File menu. When you
select a template function, a dialog window appears for specifying the template file name. To save
configuration templates refer to the basic configuration steps below.
To load configuration settings from an existing template into the SCM, perform the following steps:
1. Select Load Template from the File menu and select the template from the resulting
dialog window. The application retrieves the configuration settings of the selected template.
2. Select Save to Unit from the File menu. The application makes the template
configuration settings the current operating configuration for the unit.
3. Select Compare from the File menu to compare the screen’s configuration data to a specific
template.

Traps
Description
Cold Start Trap
Trap is sent when any other network interface comes up.
Link UP Trap
Trap is sent when any other network interface comes up.
Link DOWN Trap
Trap is sent when a network interface goes down.
Express Poll Trap
Trap is sent when the state of a network element changes.
States are Inactive, Active, or Active with errors.
Alarm Trap
Trap is sent when a network element detects a change in its alarm
information. The Alarm Trap can be masked in the Node Table by either
turning off the alarm scan to a network element or through the SCM
which toggles all alarm traps (Trap Control)
Authentication Failure
Trap sent when an SNMP command is received with an incorrect
Community Name (can be masked by means of the Authentication
Traps field)
•
The Cold Start trap is sent instead of the Link UP trap for the Ethernet interface. When another
interface is brought up, a Link UP trap is sent.
•
Once the SCM is plugged into the shelf, Link UP and Link DOWN traps may be sent to a
network manager whenever an interface changes state. The Ethernet interface is never in the
down state. The WAN interface, the DBU WAN interface, and the WAN interface of the CTRL
port can change states as part of their normal operation.
Trap Procedures
Adding a Trap Definition
To add a Trap definition, perform the following steps:
1. In the All Traps field, select Enable.
2. To send the Authentication Failure Trap at the appropriate time, select Enable in the
Authentication Traps field. To prevent it from being sent, select Disable.
3. In the Selected Entry Criteria section of the window, click in the IP Address field, then type in
the address of the intended destination.
4. Click in the UDP Port field, then type in the port number used by the SNMP manager.
Note
Use the default port number (162) unless the system administrator requires a different port.

the SCM. In the IP group of MIB-II there is an IP Routing Table that contains an entry for each route
known to the SCM. The main function of the table is to equate each out-going IP packet with a route
that provides the physical interface port. The routing table can be built via SNMP if there is an
existing IP connection to one of the ports. The routing table is stored in volatile memory, and it is
lost if the SCM is repowered. Table 4-7 provides examples of valid subnet masks.

Special Considerations
•
DSEs that employ constant, dedicated line connections to their remotes, such as SC 5520 and
SC 5553 DSEs, require private line time slots.
•
DSEs that perform dial-up modem functions, such as SC 5034 DSEs, require switched network
time slots.
•
A DSE that normally operates on a dedicated connection and has restoral capability for use in
case of trouble with that connection requires time slot assignments for both functions.
•
The application enforces limits based on the DSE device type. An SC 5520 DSE, for example,
can be assigned only one time slot, since it employs a single DS0 on the line connected to the
LTU network interface. A DSE that performs fractional T1 or fractional E1 functions can be
assigned as many time slots as are required to support its fractional T1/E1 data rate. When you
assign multiple time slots for fractional T1/E1, they must be sequential, just as the DS0s on the
line must be sequential.
DSE Highway Configuration Procedures
1. Click on the Selected DSE field and select the DSE that you intend to work with.
Note
If you are configuring an SC 5034 DSE, remember that time slots for Line 1 and Line 2 need to be configured
separately.
2. Click on the Highway field for the desired time slot category (Private Line or Switched
Network/Restoral). Select the backplane data highway the DSE is to use for exchanging data
with its LTU.
3. Click on the check box(es) for the time slot(s) you are assigning to the DSE.
4. If you have more than one LTU to configure you can return to Step 1, select the next DSE, and
repeat the procedure. The application retains the pending changes for the DSE(s) you have
already configured, and grays out the time slots you have already assigned.
5. When all edits are made, dismiss the window while preserving the pending changes by
clicking on the OK button. If desired, the window can be left open while you use other
applications.
6. Put the configuration into effect by using the Shelf Configuration window File menu selection,
Save to Shelf.
5-10
Note
Private Line Time Slot assignments and Switched Network/Restoral Time Slot assignments are mutually
exclusive. When a DS0 is selected in one area, the other area will be unavailable for that highway and will
appear grayed-out.
Note
In the case of an SC 5001 LTU, only DS0s 1 - 24 are valid and available for assignment.

Chapter 6:
TEAM Core Utilities
Overview
The TEAM core software application includes utility functions that are launched from higher order
maps and do not fit into the same categories as the operations performed from the Shelf map. These
utility applications are described in this chapter:
•
Firmware Download for All TEAM applications
(launched from the Universe map with a shelf icon selected).
•
Group Configuration for TEAM SC553 application only
(launched from the Root map with the TEAM Universe icon selected)
•
Line Statistics Collector for TEAM SC553 application only
(launched from the Root map with the TEAM Universe icon selected)
Firmware Download Application
SpectraComm Firmware Download application is launched only from the Configuration menu of
an OVW submap after a shelf has been selected. The application allows you to download new
firmware files into the devices controlled by the SCM, including devices in the SpectraComm shelf
as well as some of the remotes linked to those devices.
Standby Firmware Support
Some SCM-compatible devices can store two revisions of operating firmware, designated as the
Active firmware revision and the Standby firmware revision. The Active revision is the firmware
currently operating in the device. The Standby revision is alternate firmware to which the device
can be commanded to switch over. The functionality for switching between firmware versions is
part of the Firmware Download application.
In devices that support standby firmware, new firmware is initially the standby revision when it is
loaded. When the new firmware becomes the active revision, the previous firmware is retained as
the standby revision. This arrangement permits restoration of the earlier revision if there are
problems with new firmware.
Note
IMPORTANT: Before performing any firmware download or switchover procedure, be sure to consult the
individual TEAM Operation Manual and any accompanying Release Notes for the target device.

Group Configuration Application (for SC 553 DSUs only)
The Group Configuration application is launched from the Configuration menu of the Root map.
Group Configuration allows the user to:
•
set up a group of SC 553 units to be configured
•
select the template to be used for configuring the SC553 units
•
schedule when the configuration procedure is to begin
Group Guidelines
By grouping SC553 DSUs, the user can then apply a configuration template so that all units in that
group will receive the same configuration. The desired configuration must be first set up using the
TEAM SC553 Configuration application and stored as a template. Through the use of the stored
template, the configuration can be loaded into multiple SC553 units.
Note
•
All units in the group must be the same type of device (all SC 553 DSUs).
•
The TEAM SC553 application package must be installed and available at the TEAM Core
workstation.
•
Templates must be created in advance by the TEAM SC553 Configuration application for each
group of SC553 units to be configured.
•
Grouped units can be installed in multiple shelves and do not have to be located at the same site.
•
By functioning from the Root map at the top of the map hierarchy, the Group Configuration
application can access all compatible units in the TEAM universe.
IMPORTANT: Once launched, the Group Configuration application should be kept running in order to retain
its database of group assignments. When not in use, the Group Configuration window can be reduced to an
on-screen icon.
Exiting the Group Configuration application will clear group assignments and clears accumulated status
data. The next time the application is launched, new groups can be created.
Using Templates
Templates store a particular configuration for the unit options. Users can store as many templates
as needed. Use the TEAM SC 553 Configuration application and save the configuration as a
template on the workstation that runs the application, as described in the procedure below. For
detailed instructions, consult the TEAM SC553 Operation Manual and associated Release Notes.
1. Access the TEAM SC553’s main Configuration window. The application reads the current
configuration from the selected unit when you open the main window. You can base a new
configuration template on either the selected unit’s current configuration or a previously stored
template.
•
To create a template by editing an existing template, select Load Template from the
File menu and select a template from the resulting list.
•
To create a template by editing the unit’s current configuration, click on Navigate to
display the application’s menu of configuration windows, and select the one in which you
intend to make changes.
2. Make changes as needed in the configuration window, then select and make changes in any

Line Statistics Collector (for SC 553 DSUs only)
Line Statistics Collector (for SC 553 DSUs only)
The Line Statistics Collector application can be launched only from the Performance menu of the
root map with the TEAM Universe icon highlighted. From this level of the map hierarchy, the Line
Statistics Collector can be configured to retrieve data from any and all SC 533 unit in the TEAM
universe.
Theory of Operation
The TEAM-controlled SC553 DSUs collect statistical information on their operations and retain up
to 24 hours worth of information in seven categories:
•
Errored Seconds (ES)
•
Bursty Errored Seconds (BES)
•
Severely Errored Seconds (SES)
•
Unavailable Seconds (UAS)
•
Cyclic Redundancy Checksum errors (CRC)
•
Loss of Frame Counts (LFC)
•
Controlled Slip Seconds (CSS)
Meanwhile, the Line Statistics Collector application polls the devices once a day on a scheduled
basis to retrieve the statistical data collected. It stores the accumulated data on the TEAM
workstation so that it can be output to other applications for display and use. The Line Statistics
Collector application also creates and administers a group of files for each device from which it
collects statistics.
Application Windows
When you launch the Line Statistics Collector application, it displays its main Line Statistics
Collector window and provides access to additional subordinate windows, which are described in
detail in subsequent paragraphs:
•
The Line Statistics Collector main window sets and executes the collection
processes. The window can be reduced to a desktop icon after setup. This icon will display
green while all units respond successfully to polling. It will change to red if any units do not
respond
•
The Session Security window, associated with the padlock icon, is used to enable or
disable session security. When the padlock icon on the main window is displayed in the locked
position, the system is guarded against accidental termination of the statistics collection
process.
•
The Status Log window, associated with the status log icon, displays a record of start and
completion times for each day’s polling activities. The log identifies any unit that fails to
respond when polled.
•
058R720-V400
Issue 1
•
The Status Log icon is green when all units have responded to polling; thus, the log
contains only start and completion times.
•
The Status Log icon is red when the log contains no response entries.
The Group Selection window, associated with the Select/View Group button,
allows the user to specify which SC553 devices statistics will be used to collect statistics.

Note
In the Collection State display fields, the button that corresponds to the task’s current state will be grayed out.
Note
When the Session Security option is enabled, the padlock icon will display in the locked position. In this case,
whenever a locked icon, the Disable Collection button, or an Exit menu selection is clicked, the
application will prompt for a password before activating these functions. The application will not honor these
commands unless the correct password is supplied.
Note
When all collection tasks are functioning properly the Status Log icon will display green. It turns red when
any of the tasks malfunction, such as failure to respond to polling.

Collection Types
When the user selects 15 Minute Intervals for 7 days, the application records seven
days of statistics as individual 15-minute interval counts. For each monitored device, this type of
collection involves a group of 672 files (one for each interval). Thus, 48,384 bytes of storage
capacity is required. Each day, the application replaces 96 files each day for each device.
When the user selects 24 Hour Totals for 60 days, the application records 60 days of
statistics as 24-hour total counts. For each monitored device, this type of collection involves a group
of 60 files (one for each day). Thus, 4,320 bytes of storage capacity is required. Each day, the
application replaces one file each day for each device.
Note
You can configure the application to perform both types of collection on the same device. For both types, the
oldest 24 hours of data is deleted each day when the application collects new data and when the maximum
amount of data has been stored.

Application Considerations
Each file the application records contains one line of data for each polled device. The format of the
data line is as follows, with commas separating the three ID items and seven statistical items that
comprise each line of data:
Date - Time,Shelf ID,Slot Id, ES, BES,SES, UAS,CRC,LFC,CSS
When a poll results in an errored response or no response at all, the data line contains the value -1
for each of the seven statistics categories, as shown in the example below:
Date - Time,Shelf ID,Slot Id, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1
When a poll is successful but the polled device had not collected valid data, the data line stored by
the application will be as follows:
Date - Time,Shelf ID,Slot Id,65535,65535,65535,65535,65535,255,0
6-24
Note
The polling procedure can take as much as a minute for each device being polled. Therefore it is advisable
to schedule data retrieval to occur at a time of reduced data traffic such as late at night.
Note
Once the Line Statistics Collection application is running, it will automatically add to the continuous
collection process any compatible units from newly discovered shelves. If you do not want to collect data from
these any of these automatically added units, you need to deselect them at the Group Selection window.
