Introduction
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the SPECTRUM Management Module for the FDM.
It also provides the model type names assigned to the hubs in SPECTRUM.
The model type name refers to the template used to specify attributes,
actions, and associations for device models in SPECTRUM.
NOTE
If you are running a previous version of SPECTRUM, the following user
interface aspects may differ from those in SPECTRUM version 4.0:
• Order and names of menu selections
• Navigational features (mouse button functionality)
For information about menu selections and navigating within previous
versions of SPECTRUM, refer to the SPECTRUM System User’s Guide. For
information about menu selections and navigating within SPECTRUM
version 4.0, refer to the SPECTRUM Views.
FDDI Modules for the MMAC-FNB
Cabletron Systems FDDI modules for the MMAC-FNB provide Ethernet to
FDDI bridging and concentrator capabilities. The MMAC-FNB FDDI modules
are:
FDMMIM (FDDI Management Media Interface Module)
The FDMMIM is an Ethernet to FDDI bridge providing the connection
between the Ethernet “A” channel on the MMAC and the FDDI portion of the
9030829 E5
1-1
FDDI Modules for the MMAC-FNB
FNB. The FDMMIM provides SMT/SNMP management of other FDDI
modules (FDCMIM-04 and FDCMIM-08) in the same MMAC chassis.
FDMMIM-04 (FDDI Management Media Interface Module)
The FDMMIM is an Ethernet to FDDI bridge and a four port concentrator on
a single module. The FDMMIM-04 provides all the functionality of the
FDMMIM with four additional master (“M”) ports for connecting to other
FDDI devices.
FDCMIM-04
FDCMIM-08 (FDDI Concentrator Media Interface Modules)
The FDCMIM-04 and FDCMIM-08 provide four and eight concentrator “M”
ports respectively. These modules provide additional FDDI connections when
inserted to the left of and adjacent to the FDM module in the MMAC-FNB
chassis. The FDC modules provide no management functions. The FDC
modules communicate with an FDM through the FNB. Although the FDC
modules can work independently of the FDM, the FDM is required to provide
a connection to the FDDI dual counter-rotating ring and to provide
management functions. Figure 1-1 shows a representation of an Ethernet to
FDDI bridge.

FDM
Management Module Guide
Chapter 2
Modeling the FDM
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the procedures for modeling the FDM Ethernet to
FDDI bridging module in SPECTRUM.
SPECTRUM requires that certain modeling conventions be followed in order
for it to correctly monitor and manage physical devices or applications. If you
use AutoDiscovery to create your FDM models, it will locate the devices on
your network and create the associated models, but will not impose the proper
configuration automatically. Follow the instructions contained in this chapter
to impose the proper configuration upon models that AutoDiscovery has
already created.
If you create models of your FDM devices manually, follow the modeling
procedures explained in this chapter to create a model that is consistent with
the conventions and rules used by the AutoDiscovery program when it
constructs a network model, and impose the proper configuration upon that
model.
NOTE
In order to follow the steps in this chapter you must have a working
knowledge of icon creation, cutting, copying, pasting, and the DevTop View.
For more information on using the DevTop View, refer to SPECTRUM Views.
9030829 E5

Single Ethernet to FDDI LAN
Single Ethernet to FDDI LAN
To model a single Ethernet LAN to an FDDI LAN in SPECTRUM, follow this
procedure:
1. Create a LAN_802_3 conceptual model.
2. Create an FDDI conceptual model.
3. Create a BdgCSIFDM model.
4. Navigate into the LAN_802_3 and create an MMAC-FNB model
representing the hub in which the FDM is installed.
5. Navigate into the Device Topology (DevTop) View of the MMAC-FNB
model and copy the BdgCSIFDM icon to the appropriate port on the Port
Connections Panel.
6. Navigate into the DevTop View of the BdgCSIFDM model, copy the
HubCSIFDDI hub icon from the Port Connections Panel, and paste it into
the FDDI model.
!
Do NOT use CUT and paste to move the HubCSIFDDI icon onto the FDDI
model. Use COPY and paste.
CAUTION
7. In the BdgCSIFDM DevTop View, move the MMAC-FNB model’s Off-Page
Reference to the appropriate port in the Port Connections Panel.
8. SPECTRUM creates the Off-Page Reference and pipe connections
automatically (refer to Figure 2-1).
This completes the procedure for modeling a single Ethernet to FDDI LAN.
Figure 2-1 illustrates modeling a single Ethernet to FDDI LAN with the FDM.

FDM DevTop View
The FDM DevTop View allows you to logically connect other devices to the
Ethernet or FDDI bridging interfaces on the FDM and view statistics on the
the FDM’s connection to the FDDI network. The FDM model type software
also “connects” a concentrator icon to the FDM’s FDDI bridging interface, and
places it in the FDM DevTop View. Figure 2-4 provides an example of an FDM
DevTop View.
Off-Page Reference Panel
The Off-Page Reference Panel, in the top left section of the FDM DevTop View,
displays icons representing network devices connected to the FDM. These
triangular-shaped icons must be logically connected to a port in the Port
Connections Panel for SPECTRUM to correctly monitor and manage the
connected device. To logically connect an Off-Page Reference Icon to an FDM
port, follow these steps:
1. Select Edit from the File menu.

FDM DevTop View
Port Connections Panel
The Port Connections Panel, located at the bottom of the FDM DevTop View,
represents the ports contained in the FDM. You can move device models that
appear in the Off-Page Reference Panel to the Port Connections Panel and
connect them to the appropriate FDM port. You can also create new device
models with the New Model option from the Edit menu, and connect them to
the proper FDM port.
The device-to-port connection process is controlled by the “Connects_to”
relation rules. SPECTRUM checks these rules to verify that the connection
can be made. Once you make a connection between a device and an FDM, an
association forms between the port and the connected device with this
“Connects_to” relation. SPECTRUM also forms a “Collects” relation between
the newly connected device model, its connected port, and the FDM.
The FDM model type software automatically “connects” a concentrator icon to
the FDDI port and places it in the FDM DevTop View. You must then copy the
concentrator model from the DevTop View and pastes it into the FDDI
network model to allow the FDM to gather statistics on the configuration and
performance of the FDDI network. For more information on the proper
modeling procedure, refer to the modeling instructions for your particular
network configuration earlier in this chapter.
Bridging Interface Icons
Bridging interface icons representing the Ethernet and FDDI ports on the
FDM appear at the bottom of the Port Connections Panel. Figure 2-5 provides

Device View
What is in this Chapter
This chapter provides a description of the Device Views for the FDM
Management Module. The Device Views allow you to view either a physical or
a chassis (logical) representation of the FDM bridging and FDC concentrator
modules installed in the MMAC-FNB chassis. The Device Views also provide
you with menu bar access to the views that monitor and control the FDM and
FDC modules and ports.
• The Chassis Device View allows you to view the logical representations of
the modules. From this view, you can access performance, configuration,
and status information about the modules and ports.
• The Physical Device View displays a physical representation of the
modules installed in the MMAC-FNB chassis.
These Device Views show the FDM’s configuration. When the port or
application status is modified, the display reflects those changes after the
model’s next polling cycle. When a module is added or removed from the
chassis, SPECTRUM displays those changes when a model reconfiguration
occurs.
Chassis Device View
The Chassis Device View gives a logical representation of the modules in the
chassis, and the current configuration. If the configuration changes, you see
the corresponding change within this view. This change in the view occurs
after the model’s next polling cycle, which is determined by the time interval
assigned to the Configuration Timer. Figure 3-2 shows an example of an FDM
Chassis Device View.

a Neighbor Identification Frame (NIF) from the neighbor station, the station
will begin troubleshooting for a loss of contact.
T-Req (milli sec)
The Target Token Rotation Time (TTRT) bid made by this concentrator, in
milliseconds.
T-Neg (milli sec)
The winning TTRT bid on the ring displayed in milliseconds.
TVX (milli sec)
The valid transmission timer. The TVX detects excessive ring noise, token
loss, and other faults. When the station receives a valid frame or token the
TVX resets. If the TVX expires, the station starts a ring initialization
sequence.

Event and Alarm Messages
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the types of events and alarms generated by the FDM.
Additionally, this appendix notes if an event is also mapped to an identical
alarm message, and provides any probable cause messages corresponding to
these alarms.
FDM Events and Alarms
SPECTRUM supports the following events and alarms for the FDM. The
event message files are in the following directory:
/SPECTRUM Directory Path/SG-Support/CsEvFormat
The alarm message files are in the following directory:
/SPECTRUM Directory Path/SG-Support/CsPCause
