Handling Alarms

This document enumerates the types of alarms that may be generated in the course of running Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper and gives the recommended steps for resolving them.

Note: There is a one-to-one correspondence between Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper’s alarms and the defined SNMP traps. To view the MIB directly, point your MIB browser to the file BEA-WLNG-MIB available in the <wlng_domain>/snmp directory of your installation. Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper does not provide a MIB browser, but most vendors of SNMP utilities do.


Interpreting alarms

An alarm in the alarm list stores the following types of information in the database. Alarm information retrieved using listeners will have slightly different parameters. For more information, see the “Events, Alarms and Charging” section of the Communication Service Reference.

A unique sequential identifier
The name of the software module that raised the alarm and the IP address of the server in which the module runs
The time at which the event was triggered (in milliseconds from midnight 1 January 1970)
The alarm’s severity level. One of the following:
1 - warning
2 - minor
3 - major
4 - critical
The alarm type
Information provided by the software module that raised the alarm.
3.0 style alarms only. This field includes:
  • Service Provider ID
  • Application ID
  • Application Instance Group ID (account login)
  • Other information depending on context


Alarm numbering overview

Alarms are grouped into two large sets: those raised by 2.2 style mechanisms and those raised by 3.0 style mechanisms. For more information on the differences between them, see the “Events, Alarms and Charging” section of the Communication Service Reference, a separate document in this set. Descriptions of each alarm and steps to take to resolve them can be found in the following two chapters:

2.2 Style (Legacy) Alarms

The numbers correspond to the new style sequential alarm_id. The old 2.2 style identifiers continue to exist in the alarm.xml file as attributes in key “AlarmIdentifier22” value “<old number>” pairs.
