Configuring the Physical Link Detection Function

The physical link detection function helps reduce the number of alarms generated on links and avoid system performance degradation caused by plenty of alarms that would be otherwise generated.

Usage Scenario

When plenty of alarms are generated on links, system performance deteriorates because the system has to process the huge number of alarms. You can set thresholds for different types of alarms, so that alarms are generated only when the alarm thresholds are reached. In addition, measures can be taken when necessary to remove faults and guarantee the transmission of normal traffic.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring physical link detection, complete the following tasks:

  • Powering on the router, ensuring that the router works properly and completes self-check successfully.
  • Configure physical attributes for interfaces on the router.
