This object can be set through a management interface.
When the administrative state of this interface is 'down',
the value of this object does not have any impact.
When the administrative state of this interface is 'up',
if this object has a value of 'false', an alarm on this
interface will be reported. If the value of this object is 'true'
then all alarms on this interface will be suppressed.
If the interface has a good signal, the soak timer will be
started, if the port is faulted before the soak timer expires,
the soak timer will be reset to the provisioned maximum value.
If the soak timer expires then the value of this object is
automatically set to 'false'.
This is the current value of the soak timer
for this interface. The difference between
cerntIfExtConfiguredSoakTime and this object gives the
time duration for which this interface has had a good signal.
