does enabling Meausrements on a Trunk Group take that trunk OOS?

does enabling Meausrements on a Trunk Group take that trunk OOS?

(OP)
need some help here gents. Have a CM running 6.3 and i want to change a Trunk group so that it's being measured. will this take the trunk down or put if out-of-service? i know it's a very simple change but it's been so long since i've done this that i can't remember.

RE: does enabling Meausrements on a Trunk Group take that trunk OOS?

No not at all

RE: does enabling Meausrements on a Trunk Group take that trunk OOS?

If you have CMS, it can result in the link bouncing. I suggest doing it out of hours.

thanks. i forgot that turning on measurements is for CMS, not for troubleshooting T-1's or trunks. for some reason i mixed up the fact that running the "list measurements" command requires that the Trunk have measured turned on. but they're not related. running the "list measurements ds1 log" command is for checking counters while setting a trunk to "both" or "internal" for measured only applies to CMS stats. anyway, thanks for the feedback.

RE: does enabling Meausrements on a Trunk Group take that trunk OOS?

list measurements ds1 log is for looking at Telco provider errors on a T1 circuit.

list bcms trunk is used for BCMS measurements for trunk-groups set to measured "int" or "both"

list measurements trunk hourly requires that change measurements trunk-group has the trunk groups programmed on the form for hourly trunk-group call measurements to provide data.

yeah but list measurements trunk hourly is still a CMS stat, correct? that's not going to tell me if the T-1 is taking slips or having errors.

RE: does enabling Meausrements on a Trunk Group take that trunk OOS?

CMS is an adjunct hardware platform and requires trunk-group measurements to be set to "ext" or "both"
These reports are generated from CMS, not the pbx.
Data is constantly sent from the pbx to the CMS hardware platform.

trunk-group hourly measurements are only for the last 24 hours from the time you run the report. This data is stored in the pbx memory.

list bcms trunk is almost a week of data which is also stored in the pbx or stored in a BCMSRD computer that is also a hardware adjunct for storing BCMS data. Much cheaper that CMS.
