I have one site that is having issues and Sprint's MPLS group asked that I put the command
(config)#service-module t1 fdl both
on my router for troubleshooting. Apparently this sends alarm info back along the line and lets them look at both the XMT and REC side instead of just the XMT.
I also have another router that has this command on it, new router 1811 from Sprint that I manage, but their default config included this statement:
service-module t1 remote-alarm-enable
My questions to the experts is that are one or both of these commands OK to leave on all the time?
if so Why?
Should they only be put on during times of trouble on the WIC?
Do they consume a significant amount of unnecessary resources?
