STHi
Management Module Guide
Chapter 1
Introduction
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the SPECTRUM Management Module for Cabletron’s
STHi stackable hub. This chapter also provides the name of the model type
SPECTRUM assigns to the STHi hub. The SPECTRUM model type name
refers to the template used to specify attributes, actions, and associations for
device models in SPECTRUM.
STHi Management Module
HubCSISTHI
The HubCSISTHI model type supports the STHi-22T, STHi-24T, STHi-42 and
the STHi-44T devices. These Token Ring devices support 12 or 24 station
ports, as well as a Ring Out and Ring In port. The STHi will support
additional STH non-intelligent stackable hubs, allowing the STHi hub to
support up to 120 station ports.
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)

STHi Applications
The STHi supports both common and device-specific applications described in
SPECTRUM Views. SPECTRUM management of the STHi utilizes the
following Management Information Bases (MIBs) which come as a part of the
software module for the model type:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Internet MIB-II (RFC 1213)
CtChassis MIB
CtDevice MIB
RS232 MIB (RFC 1317)
CtDownload MIB
DS1 Interface MIB (RFC 1406)
Cabletron Dot5 MIB
Cabletron Dot5 Physical MIB
RMON and DLM are also supported, and may be purchased separately. The
following chapters explain how you use SPECTRUM and the management
module software to monitor a STHi stackable hub.

STHi
Management Module Guide
Chapter 2
Device View
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the STHi’s Logical and Physical Device views and how
to utilize these views to manage and access information from the STHi
module. The Logical Device view provides a logical representation of the STHi
module and access to configuration and status information on the module
itself, the Ring In and Ring Out ports, and the station ports. The Physical
Device view provides a physical representation of the STHi and allows access
to configuration and status information for the STHi module.
Logical Device View
The Logical Device view provides access to detailed information about the
STHi module and the STH hubs connected to it, the Ring In and Ring Out
ports, and the individual station ports. Figure 2-1 illustrates the Logical
Device view for the STHi. Figure 2-2 displays the STHi Logical Module and
the menu selections available by double-clicking the left mouse button on each
zone of the module.

RING PURGE THRESHOLD EXCEEDED
SYMPTOMS:
The Ring is oscillating. Oscillation occurs
when the Ring fails a short time after
recovery.
SYMPTOMS:
The Ring Purge Threshold Value has been
Exceeded. A Ring Purge is used to make the
Ring return to a normal condition.
PROBABLE CAUSE:
An Active Monitor will initiate the Ring
Purge process when:
1) A Token Error condition is detected by the
Active Monitor.
2) An adapter becomes the Active Monitor in
the Monitor Contention Process.

Value has been Exceeded.
PROBABLE CAUSES:
1) The Active Monitor may have received a
Ring Purge or an Active Monitor Present
frame that it did not transmit.
2) The Active Monitor may have received a
Claim Token MAC frame which indicates
that a duplicate Active Monitor or another
Station has detected an error within the
Active Monitor.

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.
Event00420215
{d "%w- %d %m-, %Y - %T"} RING LOST FRAMES

SYMPTOMS:
The Ring Lost Frames Threshold Value has

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.

Station Table view serves as a starting point for several station management
tasks.
A Device Banner appears at the top of the Station Table view, detailing
information about the STHi device. Below this, characteristics of the ring are
displayed. The values for Ring Name, Ring Number, Ring Speed, and Ring
Status are included. The MAC address for the Active Monitor is shown just

The Network Application
The main portion of the Cabletron Token Ring Station Table view consists of
the station table itself which lists each station connected to the STHi hub.
Entries for each station consist of the station’s address and name, number of
frames passed, number of errors, and the module and port number for the
station. The following buttons allow you to manipulate the station table data:
Update
Click this button to obtain the latest information for each station.
Totals/Delta
Click this button so that it shows the desired numerical display. For instance,
if you want to see Frame and Error data since the station was first monitored
by SPECTRUM, toggle the button so that it shows Totals. If you want to see
the Frame and Error data since the table was last updated, toggle the button
to Delta.
MAC/Canonical
Click this button so that it shows the desired station address format. The
station addresses will be displayed either in the MAC or Canonical format.
Set Filter
Click on this button to configure or clear a filter for the chosen table field. The
procedure for configuring a filter is outlined below.
Setting a Filter for Station Table Entries
1. Click on the table heading whose entries you’d like to filter.
2. Click on the Set Filter button.
A dialog box appears and allows you to set a filter or clear a filter. Clearing
a filter will result in all stations being displayed.

Station Detail view breaks down the stations traffic into frames and errors
and displays this information in a color-coded pie chart. Two other pie charts
display the Isolating Errors and Non-Isolating Errors statistics. The Station
Detail view also displays the up and downstream neighbors of the station,
provides access to the Cabletron Token Ring Station Alarms Configuration
view (described later in this chapter), and allows you to enable a station’s
removal from the ring if alarm thresholds are surpassed.
Station Alarms
Click this button to access the Station Alarm Dialog box. To configure an
alarm for a particular station, follow the steps below.
1. Enter thresholds for Line, Internal, Burst, A/C and Congestion errors.
2. Click on the desired button to Enable or Disable each alarm.
3. Move the stations you’d like to apply the alarm configurations to into the

the Stations list or by highlighting the station’s address and clicking the
navigation buttons that are between the two lists.
4. Click the Apply button to set the alarms for the selected stations.
