Sorting or filtering your customer endpoints  using the inventory list

Your customer endpoints (CEs) are not only displayed on the main PTAP map; you can also find them as part of a sortable inventory list.

While the main PTAP map provides a nice geographical view of your CEs, the inventory list is a searchable, customizable way to look at your device and circuit data. Plus, it's a quick way to pull up lots of additional details on each service ID. For instance, by clicking the blue Metrics link associated with a service ID, you can immediately see path selection, E2E/P2P paths, and other information.

To sort or filter customer endpoints on an inventory list:

  1. Click Reports, click Network Reports, then click Network Performance (PTAP).

    Control Center opens a separate window for CenturyLink PTAP.
  1. Click Inventory List on the top of the dashboard (above the map).

    PTAP lists all your CEs.
  1. To customize your inventory list, you can sort and/or filter it: 

    • To sort your inventory, do any of the following:

      • To sort the list by a column, click the column header.

      • To reorder the columns, click and drag the column header left or right.

      • To add or remove columns: 

        1. Hover over the column header, click the down arrow.

        2. Click columns, then select the checkbox next to the column name to add deselect the checkbox to remove the column.

    • To filter your inventory, click List Filter, then do any of the following:

      • To show only particular types of services, select (or clear) the checkboxes in the Services section.

      • To filter by network (UNI) or EVC (Ethernet virtual circuit), select an option from the list. (To remove the filter, select All from the list.)

      • To filter the view to show CEs in a state, select an option from the State list.

      • To filter for a device, use the list to select the way you'd like to search for the device, then type the information for the device. (You need to type at least 3 characters for the filter to start working.)

      • To filter using a column:

        1. Hover over the column header, click the down arrow.

        2. Select the Filters checkbox, then type your filter criteria in the field.
  1. Click the blue Metrics link associated with a service ID.

    Control Center shows the metrics for the service you selected.

Area 1: Path Selection

Path selection—If the From selected device (CE) provides E2E service, then the CE path can terminate at multiple other customer endpoints—assuming there are other CEs that provide E2E service in this enterprise. If so, then a different To location can be selected in the To list. Paths and devices in the grids will automatically change when a new To device is selected.

Area 2: E2E / P2P Paths

E2E/P2P paths—This grid contains the individual P2P paths and the complete E2E path. Use it to navigate to the active (circuit) metrics reports. Active metrics for performance across paths (circuits) between devices is collected by special monitoring equipment such as a BRIX verifier.

Area 3: Devices

Devices—This grid contains the devices along the path. Use it to navigate to the passive (device) metrics reports. Passive metrics are the data collected from devices such as routers that are located at the endpoints of the circuits.
