SPECTRUM management module SM-FOR1000
currently lets you model the following devices:
• Cabletron’s 9A000 ATM Switch Module for the
SmartSwitch 9000.
• Cabletron’s SFCS-200BX and SFCS-1000
SecureFast Cell Switches.
• FORE Systems’ ASX-100, ASX-200 series,
and ASX-1000 series ATM Switches.
The 9A000 is a dual-slot SmartSwitch 9000
module that provides an aggregate 2.5 Gbps of
ATM switching capacity for up to 24 workstations
or ATM devices. Its four network module slots can
provide a range of LAN and WAN interfaces from
1.5 to 622 Mbps to accommodate ATM.
Supported Devices
The SFCS-1000 is a modular, 10 Gbps backbone
ATM switch that includes two 2.5 Gbps switch
modules, each containing four network module
slots. It provides connectivity for up to 96 ATM
servers or LAN access devices.
The ASX100, ASX200 series, and ASX1000 series
are stand-alone switches that provide workgroup,
LAN, LAN backbone, and WAN access support.
They are configurable from 2 to 96 ports, offer a
switching capacity ranging from 2.5 to 10 Gbps,
and support LAN and WAN interface speeds of 34
to 155 Mbps.
The SFCS-200BX and SFCS-1000 meet the needs
of LAN backbone networks and offer a variety of

Introduction
The SPECTRUM Model
The SPECTRUM Model
ForeRunner
SPECTRUM uses the following model types to
represent the supported devices and their
components.
The device models appear as routers at the
Topology, Universe, and Location (room, rack,
and panel) levels. Figure 1 shows an example of
the ForeRunner Topology and Location view
icons.
• ForeRunner (9A000, ForeASX200, etc.)
• ForeSwitchApp
• ATM_Network
• ForeUserApp
Modeling results in the creation of Device icons
that represent the devices and Application icons
that represent their supported applications.
Figure 1:
The Device icons contain double-click zones and
provide access to Icon Subviews menus that let
you perform device management activities such
as those listed in Tasks on Page 13.
ForeRunner Icons
Topology View Icon
As Figure 1 through Figure 5 show, the
appearance of the Device icons varies slightly
depending on the kind of view it appears in.
The Workstation on Page 11 is modeled as a
generic SNMP device (GnSNMPDev).
ForeSwitchApp and ForeUserApp are located in
the ATM_Network’s Device Topology view. (Refer
to SPECTRUM Views for a description of the
Device Topology view.)

Introduction
The SPECTRUM Model
ForeSwitchApp
ATM_Network
This model type represents the switch application
software. When a ForeRunner model type is
created, SPECTRUM automatically creates the
ForeSwitchApp model and places it in the ATM
part of the ForeRunner model’s Device Topology
view. Figure 2 shows an example of the
ForeSwitchApp Topology and Location View icons.
This model type is a conceptual model that
represents the ATM network. The ForeUserApp
and the ForeSwitchApp models are placed into
this model’s Device Topology view. Figure 3 shows
an example of an ATM_Network icon.

The SPECTRUM Model
ForeUserApp
Workstation
This model type represents the workstation
application that is the connection point from the
Ethernet LAN to the ATM network. When a
workstation model is created with GnSNMPDev,
SPECTRUM automatically creates the
ForeUserApp model and places it in the
GnSNMPDev workstation’s Device Topology view.
Figure 4 shows an example of the ForeUserApp
Topology and Location View icons.
This model type represents the workstation that
contains ForeUserApp. Figure 5 shows an

Interface Device Views
This section describes the Interface Device views and subviews available for the devices.
SPECTRUM provides an Interface Device view for
each ForeRunner network connection (model
type) as follows:
Figure 6:
SpectroGRAPH: Router Device: Model Name
File
• ForeRunner Interface Device View
• ForeSwitchApp Interface Device View
• ForeUserApp Interface Device View (Page 30).
Figure 6 shows a sample Interface Device view.
The view represents both physical and conceptual
devices. In general, it provides dynamic
configuration and performance information. If the
configuration changes, SPECTRUM modifies the
Interface Device view after the next polling cycle
to reflect the new configuration.
The Interface Device view also provides a model
type icon that lets you monitor the device’s
operation and access other device-specific views.

Networking Characteristics
This section provides an overview of how the ForeRunner devices function in the ATM network.
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is based on
the transmission of fixed-length (53-byte) cells of
data. Contrast this with an Ethernet LAN, which
transmits variable-length packets ranging in size
from 64 to over 1500 bytes of data. ATM’s use of
small, fixed-length data cells allows for improved
traffic management and traffic shaping.
ATM is a connection-oriented network
communication architecture, which generally
means that it transmits data through preestablished virtual channels (circuits), similar to
telephone calls. Virtual channels may be
established automatically by Switched Virtual
Circuit (SVC) signaling or they may be set up
manually by the network administrator to form
Permanent Virtual Circuits (PVCs).
Each ATM cell contains a five-byte header and 48
bytes of payload. The header includes a Virtual
Path Identifier (VPI) and a Virtual Channel
Identifier (VCI). These identifiers are used by ATM
switches to determine the correct channels to
transmit particular cells. Transmission is
controlled by statistical multiplexing, which
Device Management
awards bandwidth (channels) to devices ready to
send data on a first come, first served basis. The
combination of small, fixed-length data cells and
the efficient use of bandwidth (among other
things) allow ATM switches to communicate timecritical video and audio data along with other
computer data across the ATM network. In an
end-to-end transmission across a mixed
LAN/ATM/LAN network, packets transmitted by
a LAN workstation to an ATM switch are
segmented into cells for high speed transmission
through ATM channels. At the receiving end, cells
are reassembled into packets for use by another
LAN workstation.
Figure 12 is a functional block diagram of a
ForeRunner device and its ATM and LAN network
connections. The device contains either a 9A000,
SFCS, or ASX controller. Figure 12 also shows
how SPECTRUM models the devices, the network
applications, and the workstations in your
network. SPECTRUM models Forerunner devices
as either a ForeASX100, ForeASX200, or
ForeASX1000.

Manual Modeling
This section describes the procedures for modeling single and multiple devices and workstations.
Modeling these devices involves creating a switch
model at the Universe level, creating ATM and
LAN or discrete LAN conceptual network models,
and configuring application models within the
conceptual network models.
This section includes the following topics:
• Read Me First (Page 112)
• Modeling a Single Device and Workstation
(Page 112)
• Modeling Multiple Devices and Workstations
(Page 117)
If you choose to model your network manually,
use the procedures described in this section.
Modeling a Single Device and
Workstation
Read Me First
It is recommended that you model your network
automatically using SPECTRUM’s AutoDiscovery
feature to ensure the best modeling of your
network. (See the AutoDiscovery User’s Guide
for details on modeling your network.) Before
modeling your network, you must model an ATM
device “seed switch” within the network.
Device Management
SPECTRUM uses the seed switch as a starting
point to identify the other devices within the ATM
network. Once you have discovered and modeled
your network devices manually or using
SPECTRUM AutoDiscovery, you must run ATM
Discovery. Refer to ATM Switch Discovery
Process for instructions on running ATM
Discovery from the command line.
This section describes the procedure for modeling
a single device and its related applications and
conceptual models. Figure 13 provides a
conceptual overview of the modeling of a single
device and workstation (user application).

Modeling Multiple Devices and Workstations
The process of modeling multiple ForeRunner
devices is similar to the one for modeling single
devices and involves the following procedures
previously described:
1
Create the Universe level switch models.
2
Create additional GnSNMPDev workstation
models.
3
Copy the ForeUserApp model from the
workstation’s Topology view and paste it into
the ATM Network model.
4
Copy the ForeSwitchApp model from each
additional switch’s Topology view and past it
into the ATM Network model.
In the Universe level, logical pipe connections will
automatically be drawn between the new
ForeRunner models and the ATM_Network model.
