The application sysdiag is shipped with V6 in order to diagnose any possible problems with Layer 1. This application is run from the command line, and is located in the '$ACULAB_ROOT\V6\bin' directory. Under Windows the cursor keys are used to change cards and trunks, while under Linux the H, J, K and L keys are used.
Upon start-up the spacebar should be pressed to clear all messages in the buffer.
Good Layer 1 statistics are indicated with zeros on the NOS, AIS, LOS, RRA, TRA, RMA, TMA, Linestat, Bipvios, Faserrs and Sliperrs parameters. Please see What do Layer 1 errors indicate? if you have any errors here.
Good Layer 2 statistics are indicated by a row of 30 '1's.
- Manstr - is used by Aculab engineers to identify a beta/special software version.
- Sigstr - gives an indication of the signalling protocol type. For example, the name of the protocol; 'ETS300', and version information (major version 4, minor version 2).
- Num Phys Ports - gives an indication of the number of physical ports available on the Aculab card currently being viewed. For instance, a dual port card should display '2'.
