RAD ETX 203, 205, 220 debug and information commands


Carrier Ethernet Devices by RAD (ETX-203AX, ETX-203AM, ETX-203AX-T, ETX-205A, ETX-220A) are quite popular with telco companies around the world for connecting end clients to the backbone at layer 2. And while reference documentation is available, I couldn't find the debug/information commands digest on the Internet at all. This post, I hope, comes to fill the gap.

The commands below are meant to be run on the device CLI itself, not on provisioning system of some kind. I show examples of using them below as well.

Command Description
show configure port summary Show port summary: state (up/down), speed
show config port name status Show port status: administrative and operational states, speed/duplex, connector type, MAC address, and most important (for fiber) - RX/TX signal power (dBm)
show config port name statistics Statistics of the port: total bits/frames passed,maximum/minimum bits/sec seen, and most interesting - CRC errors, error frames, oversize frames, discards.
config port name
rate-measure interval seconds
show rate
Show port utilization in bits/sec in real-time
Responder:
config flow
service-ping-response local-ip 13.13.13.2/30 next-hop 13.13.13.1 egress-port ethernet 4/2 vlan 777
Ping sender:
config flow
service-ping local-ip 13.13.13.1/30 dst-ip 13.13.13.2 next-hop 13.13.13.2 egress-port ethernet 4/1 vlan 777 number-of-packets 10 payload-size 1450
Send ping over the client vlan (here 777) from ETX to ETX to measure latency and packet loss. You configure one ETX as responder and another one as sender.
show configure flows summary brief List all flows configured on this ETX briefly
show configure flows summary details List all flows configured on this ETX with details
show config system system-date Show system time of the appliance, important for logs/alarms correlation.
show config reporting brief-alarm-log Show alarms log, their severity/state/last raised time
