Alarm card. The alarm card is used in the Netra 810 and Netra CT 410 servers to provide system control functions. The alarm card resides in slot 8 in the Netra CT 810 server and in slot 1 in the Netra 410 server.


Access control list; a file that details which SNMP management applications can access information maintained by the MOH. The file also lists which hosts can receive SNMP traps or events.

Alarm Severity Profile

A managed entity that contains the severity assignments for the reported alarms.


Abstract notation one. The notation used in a text file for a MIB.The variables containing the information that SNMP can access are described in this file.

Attribute Value Change Record

A managed entity used to represent logged information resulting from attribute value change notifications. Instances of this managed entity are created automatically by the network entity (NE), and deleted by the NE or by request of the managing system.



Carrier Grade Transport Protocol. CGTP network interfaces send and receive packets on redundant networks. These software devices use CGTP protocol. See the ifcgtp(7) man page, which details the general properties of the network interfaces.



Command-line interface. The primary user interface to the alarm card.


Compact PCI.



Event Forwarding Discriminator. A managed entity used as a notification forwarder discriminator. At startup it registers itself as a listener to all the broadcaster MBeans registered with the MBeanServer, then listens for MBeanServer creation notifications to register with newly created MBeans.



A managed entity used to represent the various externally manageable physical components of the network entity (NE) that are not modeled using the Plug-in Unit or Equipment Holder managed entities.

Equipment Holder

A managed entity representing physical resources of the NE that are capable of holding other physical resources. An instance of this managed entity exists for each rack, shelf, drawer, and slot of the NE.





Full Log

A managed entity used to group multiple instances of the Managed Entity Creation Log Record, Managed Entity Deletion Log Record, State Change Log Record, Attribute Value Change Log Record, and/or Alarm Record managed entities to form a log. This managed entity contains information that, among other things, allows the management system to control the behavior of the log.



General purpose I/O.



Host CPU board. In the Netra CT 810 server, the host CPU board resides in slot 1. In the Netra CT 410, the host CPU board resides in slot 3.



Information model


Intelligent Platform Management Interface, used as a communication channel over the cPCI backplane in the Netra CT server.


Latest Occurrence Log

A managed entity used to group multiple log records to form a latest occurrence log. If no other log record contained in the Latest Occurrence Log instance has values of the attributes identified by the Key Attribute List attribute equal to the attribute values of the log record to be added, the log record is created and contained in the Latest Occurrence Log.



A communication channel running over the CompactPCI backplane. It can be used to communicate between the alarm card, the host CPU board, and any satellite boards.


Managed information base used to describe the exchange of information across the network element (NE) interface. A MIB is loadable, but can reference other MIBs.


Software modules are part of a program that are not combined with other parts until the program is linked. Modules do not have to be changed when a new type of object is added.


Managed Object Hierarchy. An application that monitors the field replaceable units in the system. MOH runs on the alarm card, the host CPU, and any satellite CPUs.



Network Element Managed Entity. A component of the MIB. An instance of this managed entity is automatically created upon initialization


Network File System.


Network Information System.


Physical Path Termination Point

See Termination Point MBean.


Platform Information Configuration Library. A Solaris OS library that provides a method used to publish platform-specific information for clients to access in a way that is not specific to the platform.

Plug-in Unit

A managed entity used to represent equipment that is inserted (plugged into) and removed from slots of the NE.


Processor Management Service. Manages processor elements used by client applications to implement high availability.


IEEE version of UNIX first published in 1968. The latest version now merges with The Open Group's Specification which comprise the core of the Single UNIX Specification.




Reconfiguration Coordination Manager. Part of the Solaris OS's dynamic reconfiguration (DR) framework that enables automated DR removal operations on platforms with appropriate software and hardware configuration.


Reliable Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.


Remote Method Invocation. Java RMI is a mechanism that allows one to invoke a method on an object that exists in another address space.


Reliable Network File System.



Satellite. An auxiliary CPU board that occupies a designated cPCI slot on the Netra CT system, which might, under certain conditions, operate independently.


Simple Network Management Protocol. A protocol that allows devices to be controlled remotely by a network management station.


Structure of Management Information. A definition that describes the syntax and basic data types available in a given MIB.

Software MBean

A managed entity representing logical information stored in equipment, including programs and data tables. Instances of this managed entity are created by the NE to report to the management system, the currently installed software in the related entity (that is, NE, equipment or Plug-In Unit).

State Change Record

A managed entity used to represent logged information resulting from state change notifications. Instances of this managed entity are created automatically by the NE, and deleted by the NE or by request of the managing system.



Trivial File Transfer Protocol.

Termination Point MBean

A managed entity used to represent the points in the NE where physical paths terminate (such as ports), and physical path level functions (for example, path overhead functions) are performed.



Topology Change Notification

An abstract class representing generic notifications for a change in the topology of a network entity.
