When the client creates an indication subscription in which the filter indicates one of the following:
  • CIM_AlertIndication and CIM_AlertIndication.ProbalbleCause is 52 (Threshold Crossed)

  • CIM_ThresholdIndication

The Oracle ILOM CIM sub-system generates an instance of the Oracle_ThresholdIndication class when it notices a sensor crossing a threshold.

For a description of the supported properties for the Oracle_ThresholdIndication class, see the following table.

Note - For more details about Oracle's Sun-supported properties (described in the following table), see the DMTF CIM schema, version 2.18.1, at:


Table 143 Properties for Oracle_ThresholdIndication

Data Type
Oracle ILOM Value
The format of the AlertingManagedElement property is interpretable based upon the value of this property. Values are defined as:
  • 0 (Unknown) - The format is unknown or not meaningfully interpretable by a CIM client application.

  • 1 (Other) - The format is defined by the value of the OtherAlertingElementFormat property.

  • 2 (CIMObjectPath) - The format is a CIMObjectPath, with format <NameSpacePath>:<ClassName>.<Prop1>="<Value1>", <Prop2>="<Value2>", and so forth, specifying an instance in the CIM schema.

The following values apply:

{0, 1, 2}

Definitions for these values are:

{Unknown, Other, CIMObjectPath}

Has the value 2 (CIMObjectPath).
The identifying information of the entity (that is, the instance) for which this indication is generated. The property contains the path of an instance, encoded as a string parameter, if the instance is modeled in the CIM schema. If not a CIM instance, the property contains some identifying string that names the entity for which the alert is generated. The path or identifying string is formatted per the AlertingElementFormat property.
Has the string representation of the object path of the sensor that crosses the threshold.
Primary classification of the indication. The following values are defined:
  • 1 (Other) - Current indication does not fit into the categories described by this enumeration.

  • 2 (Communications Alert) - Associated with the procedures or processes required to convey information from one point to another.

  • 3 (Quality of Service Alert) - A degradation or errors in the performance or function of an entity have occurred.

  • 4 (Processing Error) - A software or processing fault has occurred.

  • 5 (Device Alert) - An equipment or hardware fault has occurred.

  • 6 (Environmental Alert) - Refers to an enclosure in which the hardware resides, or other environmental considerations.

  • 7 (Model Change) - Addresses changes in the information model. For example, it might embed a lifecycle indication to convey the specific model change being alerted.

  • 8 (Security Alert) - Security violations, detection of viruses, or similar issues have occurred.

Has the value 6 (Environmental Alert).
Short description for the instance.
Appropriate value describing why the indication is generated.


Object path of the associated hardware component.
The object path of an instance of CIM_PhysicalElement.
A string holding the current reading value that exceeds the threshold. This is modeled as a string for universal mapping, similar to the CIM_Sensor properties in the device model.
Appropriate value.
Enumerated value that describes the probable cause of the situation that resulted in the AlertIndication.

The following values apply:

{0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130}
