- System (System2_App)
- ICMP (ICMP_App)
- UDP (UDP2_App)
• DownLoad App (CtDownLoadApp)
The TRMM-2/-4 supports device-specific applications. These applications are
described in Chapter 5, Application View, and are as follows:
• Token Ring Management (Network) Views
RMON and DLM are also supported and SPECTRUM management of these
MIBs may be purchased separately. Refer to the documentation provided with
the RMON and DLM management modules for descriptions of these
capabilities. The following chapters explain how to use SPECTRUM and the
management module software to monitor and manage a TRMM-2/-4.
SPECTRUM and the TRMM-2/-4
The TRMM-2/-4 is an intelligent port-assigning Token Ring management
module providing port level control and statistics for Cabletron’s portswitching Media Interface Modules (MIMs) such as the TRXMIM (Figure 1-1
and Figure 1-2). It is fully IBM Token Ring compatible, IEEE 802.5 compliant,
and uses an Intel i960 RISC processor for in-depth management functions.
SPECTRUM management of the TRMM-2/-4 is based on Management
Information Bases (MIBs) which come as a part of the software module for the
model type.
The following chapters explain how you use SPECTRUM and the
management module software to monitor your TRMM-2/-4.

SWITCHING UTP
TOKEN RING
TOKEN RING
The TRMM-4 may be used to monitor and
manage network activity on four token rings without the need of a station port.
The TRMM-2/-4 Management Module and SPECTRUM allow you to manage
the four FNB rings on each port-switching MIM. Port reassignments are
executed internally by the port-switching MIM. This operation is described in
Chapter 2, Device View.
The TRMM-2/-4 Management Module supports four types of models to
represent the physical TRMM-2/-4, its major and minor applications, and its
interfaces. The following sections provide a description of these models and
how they are related.
SPMA and the TRMM-2/-4
SPECTRUM also provides SPMA (SPECTRUM Portable Management
Application) functionality for the TRMM-2/-4. To open the SPMA Application
view from any SPECTRUM view, do the following:
1. Select Icon Subviews from the View Menu or click the middle or right

This security option enables the ring security, and any station not on the
secure list that enters or currently resides on the ring will generate an alarm
and be removed from the ring.
Allowed Stations
This section of the Modify Allowed Station List view displays the list of
stations currently allowed on the ring. Double-clicking on an item in the list
will move it to the Disallowed Stations window, however you cannot move a
station from the Allowed Stations window if the security is set to Enable with
Alarm. A symbol (>) indicates that this station has recently been moved to the
Disallowed Stations window from the Allowed Station window, and will
remain until the changes are applied.
Disallowed Stations
This section of the Modify Allowed Station List view acts as a scratch pad or
buffer to store addresses currently disallowed on the ring, but that you may
want to move to the Allowed Stations window in the future. The ring does not
read this buffer to deny ring access to certain stations, but rather denies
access to all stations not explicitly listed in the Allowed Stations window.
Double-clicking on an item in the list will move it to the Allowed Stations
window. A symbol (<) indicates that this station has recently been moved to
the Allowed Stations window from the Disallowed Station window, and will
remain until the changes are applied.

This button allows you to add a new station. The station address must be
added in valid hex MAC address form, and valid separators are the colon (:),
period (.), and dash (-). You can add the new station to either the Allowed or
Disallowed Station window by selecting the appropriate option in the ADD
Station dialog box. A symbol (+) indicates that this station has recently been
added, and will remain until the changes are applied. Selecting a recently
added and still marked (+) station and clicking on the DELETE button will
remove it from the window.
DELETE
This button allows you to remove the selected station (Refer to the CAUTION
earlier in this section). You may remove any station address except that
belonging to the device itself, or a station from the Allowed Stations window if
the security is set to Enable with Alarm. A symbol (-) indicates that this
station has been marked for removal, and will remain until the changes are
applied, at which time the station is actually removed from the window.
Selecting the station and clicking on the ADD button will remove the symbol
(-) and unmark the station for removal. This button will also remove a station
marked with the symbol (+).
Delete All Allowed Stations
This button allows you to remove all of the stations in the Allowed Stations
window (Refer to the CAUTION earlier in this section). A symbol (-) marks all
of the items in the window, indicating that the stations have been designated
for removal, and will remain until the changes are applied, at which time the

Event and Alarm Messages
4-10
PROBABLE CAUSE:
The active monitor has recognized an error
condition that requires a token to be
transmitted. This occurs when the timer for a
valid transmission expires (10ms).
PROBABLE CAUSES:
When a station in standby monitor state has
determined that there is no active monitor
operating on the ring. If the station claims
the token, it becomes the new active monitor
for the ring.
PROBABLE CAUSE:
The ring lost frame error occurs when a
station is transmitting and its timer for
return expires. The lost frame count keeps
track of how many frames transmitted by a
station fail to return. If a frame becomes lost
the active monitor will issue a new token.
