We have a 10G DWDM circuit terminated on 7600-sup720-3bxl (WS-X6704-10GE,10GBASE-SR) interface and we get below optical receive power measured on the router
sh interfaces tenGigabitEthernet 9/2 transceiver (o/p modified for simplicity)
We are trying to understand,what would be the cisco recommended optical rx power levels. Any help on this would be really appreciated.

You want the Data Sheet for Cisco 10GBASE XENPAK Modules? Here's the link:
Does this help?
Per the following data sheet, the XENPAK-10GB-SR module has a receiver range of -1.0 (max) to -9.9 (min). Your -2.6 dBm input would fall within the range.
What transmit equipment (specs) is connected to this receiver port? Might you have a optical power meter handy to verify the router's reading (I can dream)?
