Ciena 5171 & 5142: Port Tx/Rx Power
This check monitors
- the input power
- the output power
transmitted by the transceiver.
The powers are reported in dBm. Each of these powers are then compared to the alarm tresholds
reported by the device. The check returns
CRIT if either of the powers falls below or rises above
an alarm treshold. Otherwise, the check returns
OK. The device itself reports the power in
microwatt, which is then converted to dBm.
This check supports the Ciena 5171 Packetwave Platform and 5142 Service Aggregation Switch.
The relevant MIBs are WWP-LEOS-PORT-XCVR-MIB and CIENA-CES-PORT-XCVR-MIB.
A unique index from the snmp table.
One service is created for each port reporting power measurements.
