ETWMIM
Management Module Guide
Chapter 1
Introduction
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the SPECTRUM Management Module for the
ETWMIM. It also provides the model type names assigned to the ETWMIM in
SPECTRUM. The model type name refers to the template used to specify
attributes, actions, and associations for device models in SPECTRUM.
ETWMIM Management Module
The ETWMIM Management Module manages ETWMIM devices using the
SNMP network management agent and the Management Information Bases
(MIBs), included with the management module.
9030941 E5
1-1
ETWMIM Applications
ETWMIM Applications
The ETWMIM supports both common and device-specific applications.
Common applications are described in the Bridging Applications Reference,
the MIB II Applications Reference, and the Miscellaneous Applications
Reference and are as follows:
• Bridging (CSIBridge)
- Spanning Tree (Ct_Stp_App)
- Transparent (Transparnt_App)
- Ethernet Special Database (Ct_BdgEnet_App)
- Static (Static_App)
- PPP
- Source Routing
• MIB-II (SNMP2_Agent)
- IP (IP2_App)
- System (System2_App)
- ICMP (ICMP_App)
- UDP (UDP2_App)
• DownLoad App (CtDownLoadApp)
• PPP Application
• DS1
• RS232
The ETWMIM supports two device-specific application. These applications are
described in Chapter 5, Application View, and are as follows:
• Token Ring Application (TokenRingApp)
• Token Ring IF Application (TokenRingIfApp)
• Token Ring Special Database (CT_BdgTR_App)
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 an ETWMIM.

Device View
What is in this Chapter
The Device View for the ETWMIM allows you to view the logical
representations of the ETWMIM device and ports. The Device View also
provides you with menu bar access to views that monitor and control the
ETWMIM’s bridge performance and its ports.
Accessing the Device Views
Access the Device Views using one of the following methods.
• Double-click on the Device view button of the ETWMIM device icon. This
will open the Device view that was opened last (i.e. Chassis, Interface or
Physical).

Application View
What is in this Chapter
This chapter describes the application-specific views available for the
ETWMIM Management Module. The ETWMIM Application view provides
buttons that allow you to access increasingly detailed views of network
information, and table entries within views that provide you with double-click
zones that navigate to the following device-specific information views:
• Token Ring Application (TokenRingApp)
• Token Ring IF Application (TokenRingIfApp)
• Token Ring Special Database (CT_BdgTR_App)
Each application supported by the ETWMIM being modeled appears in the
Application view as an application-specific icon (Icon Mode) as shown in
Figure 5-1, or text label (List Mode) as shown in Figure 5-2.

Token Ring Application
One application specific subview is available for the Token Ring application.
You can access the Token Ring Detail view from the TokenRingApp Icon
(Icon Mode) or the Token Ring App text label (List Mode) Icon Subviews
menu.
Token Ring Detail View
This view provides a banner and the following information:
Transmitted Beacon Count
The number of times this interface has transmitted a beacon frame.
Remove Ring Station Count
The number of times the interface has received a Remove Ring Station MAC
frame request.

Soft Error Count
The number of soft errors the interface has detected.
Hard Error Count
The number of times the interface has detected an immediately recoverable
fatal error.
This view also provides three color-coded pie charts presenting a breakdown of
Token Ring application statistics. Each statistic is presented as a total amount
since the ETWMIM was initialized and as a percentage of overall traffic. You
can access this view by selecting Detail from the Icon Subviews menu or
through the Detail View button in the Token Ring Performance View. Three
buttons at the bottom of each pie chart select the way in which the data is
represented (Total, Delta, and Accum). Another button, Clear, works in
conjunction with the Accum button. For more information on these buttons
refer to the SPECTRUM GIB Editor Guide. Table 5-1 through Table 5-3
provide information on the statistics displayed by each chart.

Token Ring Special Database
One application-specific subview is available for the Token Ring Special
Database application. The Token Ring Special Database allows you to filter
packets through a bridge port using a filtering scheme. Filters established in
Application View

ETWMIM
Management Module Guide
Accessing the Application Views
Token Ring Special Database
the Token Ring Special Database can be configured to filter on any part of a
packet, except its header.
A filter is based on the:
• Information within a packet – Source Address, Destination Address,
Token Ring Data Type, and Data (including the offset).
• Port designated as receiver port (where the packets are filtered).
• Bridging activity on the ETWMIM’s bridge ports (e.g., forwarding/
filtering).
The Cabletron Bridge Token Ring Special Database Tables for the
Token Ring Special Database application is accessed from the CT_BdgTR_App
Icon Subviews menu. The Cabletron Bridge Token Ring Special Database
Tables provide information about Token Ring Special Database filters, ports
receiving packets, and ports having special filtered packets forwarded to them.
Within this view you can manipulate table entries, create filters, and delete
filters. Click on the Update button to update information in either table.
To sort and find table entries by column heading, follow these steps:
1. Click on a column heading. The Sort and/or Find button(s) appear in the
upper-left corner of the table.
2. Click on Sort to categorize the table according to the column heading.
Click on Find to locate a specific entry.
Filter Information Table
The Filter Information Table displays the Token Ring Special Database filters.
Double-clicking on any entry accesses the Special Database Filter View. The
Special Database Filter View contains the same fields as the Filter
Information Table for the chosen filter number, and allows you to modify the
filters. The Filter Information Table provides the following information:
Filter
Displays the number of the filter. The possible range is from 1 to 19.
State
Indicates whether the filter is enabled or disabled.
Offset
Indicates the offset (in bytes, from the beginning of the data in the packet)
where the Data Mask will be applied. The default for this field is 0000 (no data
offset). An example of a valid offset to enter into this field is 0016.
DestinationAddress-SourceAddress-Type-PacketData Window
The four fields in this window designate what the filter is configured to search
for in a packet. Table 5-6 provides a breakdown of these filter fields.
