Why does a CV-10G-S8 module intermittently show, in "Equipment Information", "Down""in the "Test Module" tab and "Error"in the "Port Group" tab?

Answer

It's very possible that the chassis is running above the specified operating temperature.  For the CV-10G-S8 (and -S2) module the operating temperature must be less than 30 degrees C.  Please refer to the Spirent TestCenter Hardware Reference.

We are typically concerned with the following temperature sensors:
  • BP1-1 is the air inlet temp in the center of the inlet plenum
  • BP1-2 is the card outlet temp on the right side as viewed from the front of the chassis
  • BP1-3 is the card outlet temp on the left side as viewed from the front of the chassis.

One way to check this is to search the bll.log for "BP1-1".  Here's what a search might look like.  Note that this indicates that the chassis is operating well above the specified operating temperatures for the chassis.

     10:33:42.275 INFO  2905566096 - fmwk.bll.core.equip  - chassis "chassis-IP" temp sensor = BP1-1, status = 1, current = 42
     10:33:42.275 INFO  2905566096 - user.equipment       - chassis "chassis-IP" temperature sensor BP1-1 has reached warning level.
     10:33:42.275 INFO  2905566096 - fmwk.bll.core.equip  - chassis "chassis-IP" temp sensor = BP1-2, status = 0, current = 51
     10:33:42.275 INFO  2905566096 - user.equipment       - chassis "chassis-IP" temperature sensor BP1-2 is now at normal level.
     10:33:42.275 INFO  2905566096 - fmwk.bll.core.equip  - chassis "chassis-IP" temp sensor = BP1-3, status = 0, current = 49

 Note that another effect of running the CV-10G  modules too hot is the error message "SAL is not connected to a Test Session or a Server Manager".  Please see SOL10853.
