Introduction
This chapter describes the three monitoring mechanisms that you can use to monitor the traffic
optimization on remote links solution:
•
p3vlink command line utility (CLU)
•
SCE command line interface (CLI)
•
Reporter tool virtual links report template group
Virtual Links Names
Each virtual link represents a single interface on the CMTS device and the virtual link name comprises
the CMTS device name and the interface name. The virtual links are named according to the following
naming convention:
<Device name>_<Interface name>
•
<Device name>—This portion of the name is set when configuring the CMTS in the vlink.cfg
configuration file.
•
<Interface name>—This portion of the name identifies the specific CMTS interface including the
direction and the interface index. This information is how the CMTS describes the interface
internally and is retrieved from the CMTS device using SNMP.
– The direction portion of the virtual link name indicates the virtual link direction. This can be
upstream or downstream.
– The interface index indicates the specific interface on the CMTS of the virtual link.
The following is an example virtual link name for a CMTS device named Device-1:
Device-1_CMTS1/0-upstream 1
If a downstream virtual link contains two channels, then the virtual link names are displayed as:
<Device name>_<Interface name>-L<index of the primary channel>
or
<Device name>_<Interface name>-W

Monitoring Using the p3vlink Utility
The p3vlink utility provides the ability to show virtual link configurations and metrics related to the
virtual links. The command format is:
p3vlink OPERATION [OPTIONS]
Table 5-1 and Table 5-2 lists the p3vlink operations and options.

p3vlink Operations
Operation
Description
Notes
--show
Displays the current general configuration, CMTS device list,
and CMTS device information.
—
--show-device
Displays general configuration of the specified CMTS device
that is known to the VLM.
—
To specify the CMTS device, use the -d option.
To show all the links related to the CMTS device, specify the
--detail option.
--resync
This command gets all the SCE virtual link configurations and
sends it to the SCE, SCE-Sniffer DHCP LEG, and CM.
To specify the SCE, use the option -n SCE_NAME.
This is a nonblocking command.
Query operation and synchronization
operation is activated in the
background.
To specify a collection manager, use the option -n CM_NAME.
In this case, the VLM gets all the SCE virtual links that are
related to the specified collection manager and sends the data to
the collection manager.
--resync-all
For each SCE, this command gets all the SCE virtual link
configurations and sends them to the SCE, SCE-Sniffer DHCP
LEG, and collection manager.
This is a nonblocking command.
Query operation and synchronization
operation is activated in the
background.
--start-query
Start the on demand query operation (and the CMTS device
synchronization operation) for one CMTS device or more
separated by “,”.
This is a nonblocking command.
Query operation and synchronization
operation is activated in the
background.
To specify the CMTS device to be queried, use the option -d
<device name>.
--show-vlinks
Shows the virtual links and virtual link indexes related to the
specified SCE.
—
Use the option -n <SCE name> to specify the SCE.
(Optional) To specify the prefix of the virtual links that you want
this command to show, use the option --prefix=<vlink prefix>.
--show-vlink-data Shows all the data related to the specified link.
—
To specify the vlink, use the one of the following options:
--vlink-name=<name> or
--vlink-id=<id>, --ne-name, and --direction

--show-subs
This command has two uses:
This command retrieves subscribers
whose giaddr attribute is one of the
CMTS devices giaddr attributes.
Show all subscribers connected to a specific CMTS device.
To specify the CMTS device, use the -d <device name> option.
(Optional) To specify the virtual link ID, use the
--vlink-id=<id> option.
(Optional) To specify the virtual link direction, use the
--direction=<up|down> option.
The result can be filtered by using:
•
Prefix (first use only)
•
Vlink-id (first use only)
•
direction
(Optional) To specify the prefix of the virtual links that you want
this command to show, use the option --prefix=<vlink prefix>.
Show all subscribers connected to a specific CMTS device
interface, or related to a specific CMTS device.
To show all subscribers related to the vlink, use
--vlink-name=<name>. Because each vlink represents one
CMTS device interface, this command enables you to see all
subscribers traveling from a specific CMTS device interface.
--remove-device
Removes a dynamic device from the VLM.
Once the device is removed, VLM
To specify the CMTS device, use the -d <device name> option. deletes all virtual links related to the
device from the SCE. The subscribers
of the affected device are logged in
with default vlink mappings.
--enable-logging Enables login on a specific device.
This command sets the log_all flag
–d <device name> To specify the CMTS device, use the -d <device name> option. related to the device to true.
During load-config and SM restart
operations, the value of log_all is reset
to the value defined in the
configuration file.
--disable-logging Disables login on a specific device.
This command sets the log_all flag
–d <device name>
related to the device to false.
To specify the CMTS device, use the -d <device name> option.
During load-config and SM restart
operations, the value of log_all is reset
to the value defined in the
configuration file.

Monitoring Virtual Links Using the Reporter
The Service Control Application for Broadband (SCA BB) includes a Reporter tool that allows you to
produce reports based on the traffic analysis performed by the SCE platform. The information is sent
from the SCE platform and is stored in a database. The Reporter can query and retrieve information from
the database and present the results in a comprehensive range of reports.
The Reporter includes the Virtual Links Monitoring group of report templates that allow you to view
statistics of bandwidth or volume of traffic used by a virtual link. The reports are provided per service
usage counter for the total volume used by the virtual link. The volume consumption can be displayed
per service for the virtual link. The reports are provided per channel.
Each report can be filtered to focus on a virtual link ID, a virtual link name, a virtual link direction, or
a combination of the virtual link identifiers.
The Virtual Links Monitoring group includes the following report templates:
•
VLink Bandwidth per Service—Shows the distribution of bandwidth among the different service
usage counters defined in the system for all subscribers.
•
VLink Aggregated Usage Volume per Service—Shows the total volume of traffic (upstream and
downstream) for each service usage counter.
