[BTI] Enabling Historical PM collection on BTI SA-8XX series



Article ID: KB34130 KB Last Updated: 19 Apr 2019Version: 1.0

This article describes how to configure Historical Performance Monitoring (PM) collection on BTI SA-8XX series (805, 821, and 822) devices.



To view BTI SA-8XX port utilization on the PSM Dashboard, the port utilization data is calculated based on the collected interface's Historical PM data on the PSM server. For BTI SA-8XX series devices, however, the transfer of historical PM data to the PSM server needs to be configured manually via the Command Line Interface (CLI).



To enable a BTI SA-8XX device to transfer the Historical PM data of its interface to a ProNX Service Manager (PSM) server, perform the following steps:

BTI-SA-821# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
BTI-SA-821(config)# pm
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# interface enable
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer upload-bin add 15m
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer upload-bin add 24h
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer upload-group add interface
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer upload-mode frequency 0 0 15
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer target mgmt-if ftpadmin ftpadmin /home/ftpadmin/HistoricalPMs/ne800 21
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer enable
BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# end
BTI-SA-821# write file
Building configuration...


BTI-SA-821(config-pm)# file-transfer target mgmt-if ftpadmin ftpadmin /home/ftpadmin/HistoricalPMs/ne800 21
  • In the above line, the PSM server's IP address is The FTP username/password is ftpadmin/ftpadmin.

  • The keyword mgmt-if is needed if the node is managed via out-of-band management. If in-band management is being used, omit the keyword mgmt-if.

  • The file transfer is via FTP by default. You can also use SFTP by simply changing the port from 21 to 22, but make sure that TCP 21/22 is not blocked to the PSM server.

  • The directory that stores the PM data is recommended to be /home/ftpadmin/HistoricalPMs/ne800.



To verify that the PM files are successfully uploaded to the PSM server, open an SSH terminal session to the PSM server and go to /home/ftpadmin/HistoricalPMs/ne800. You should see some .csv files listed in the directory, which indicates that PM data is being successfully collected. When the PSM Dashboard is opened, port utilization details should be available to view.
