SFP monitoring

The SFP parameters that can be monitored are listed and described below.

Table 31 SFP parameter descriptions

SFP parameter

Description

Suggested SFP impact

Temperature

Measures the temperature of the SFP, in degrees Celsius.

High temperature suggests the SFP might be damaged.

Receive power (RXP)

Measures the amount of incoming laser, in µWatts.

Describes the condition of the SFP. If this parameter exceeds the threshold, the SFP is deteriorating.

Transmit power (TXP)

Measures the amount of outgoing laser power, in µWatts.

Describes the condition of the SFP. If this parameter exceeds the threshold, the SFP is deteriorating.

Current

Measures the amount of current supplied to the SFP transceiver.

Indicates hardware failures.

Voltage

Measures the amount of voltage supplied to the SFP.

A value higher than the threshold indicates the SFP is deteriorating.
