  • TRAVERSE NODE-LEVEL GUI GUIDE

    Chapter 1 Node-Level GUI General Description

    Introduction This document provides a description of the navigational components of the Traverse Node-level graphical user interface (GUI). Similar to the TransNav GUI, the Traverse Node-level graphical user interface (also called the Craft GUI) provides a shelf view of a Traverse node for easier maintenance. The Node-level GUI does not communicate with the TransNav server.

    Any IP-based management connection can provide the communication path between the Node-level GUI and the Traverse system’s active GCM, including front-access craft Ethernet, Backplane Ethernet, DCC, and ECC.

    Note: The Node-level GUI works only with Traverse nodes in this release. TE-100 nodes are not supported. The information in the Node-level GUI application is obtained directly from the Traverse platform. The Node-level GUI release must match the corresponding Traverse release.

    This chapter describes the following features of the Node-level GUI: • Node-level GUI Menu Options • GUI Conventions • Resizing Capabilities • Scroll Bars • Resizing Capabilities

    Traverse Node-Level Shelf View

    When you log onto a node using the node-level GUI, a Shelf View of the node displays all of the cards in the node and their associated ports.

    Figure 2 Node-Level GUI Shelf View

    The menu bar is context-sensitive. Commands are displayed in the drop-down menus of each menu option as available (highlighted) or unavailable (grayed out), depending on the selected object (card or port).

    You can see which object is selected by the white rectangle around the object in the graphic and the name displayed in the top and bottom bars of the window. If no object is selected, the node name displays.

    Context-sensitive tabs (in the bottom half of the screen) provide node, card, or port information on alarms, events, configuration information, protection, and services. Click a card to display card-specific information. Click a port to display port-specific information. Click an external clock to display external clock timing information.

    Context-sensitive tabs allow you to view and change the following information: • Alarms: Alarms on the selected card or port. • Events: Events on the selected card or port. • Config: Configuration information on the selected card or port. • Diagnostic: Diagnostics tests on the selected port. • Timing: Timing information on the selected card or port. • DCC Tunnel: Configure DCC tunnels on the node. • Protection: Protection groups for the node.
