enable cfm segment frame-delay measurement

enable cfm segment frame-delay measurement segment_name { mep mep_id } [continuous | count value]


Triggers DMM frame transmission.

Syntax Description

segment_name An alpha numeric string identifying the segment name.
mep Specifies the maintenance association End Point that helps trigger a particular MEP level session on that segment.
mep_id Specifies the MEP-ID. The range is 1-8191. The default is all MEPs on the segment.
continuous Specifies that frames are to be sent continuously until stopped.
count Specifies that a number of frames are to be sent.
value Specifies the number of frames to send. The range is 1 to 4294967295.



Usage Guidelines

Use this command to trigger DMM frames at the specified transmit interval configured using the command configure cfm segment transmit-interval.

Continuous transmission continues until it is stopped with the command disable cfm segment frame-delay measurement or delete cfm segment.



If you try to trigger the DMM frames for a segment that is not completely configured, the frames are not transmitted for that segment, and an error message is displayed on the console.


The following example triggers continuous frame transmission on the CFM segment segment-first:

enable cfm frame-delay measurement segment-first continuous
