Metro Ring Protocol diagnostics

The Metro Ring Protocol (MRP) diagnostics feature calculates how long it takes for RHP packets to travel through the ring. When you enable MRP diagnostics, the software tracks RHP packets according to their sequence numbers and calculates how long it takes an RHP packet to travel one time through the entire ring. When you display the diagnostics, the CLI shows the average round-trip time for the RHP packets sent since you enabled diagnostics. The calculated results have a granularity of 1 microsecond.
