1 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.

  • Interpreting Alarms

  • Alarm Numbering Overview


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

Interpreting Alarms

An alarm list stored in the database contains information about alarms. Alarm information retrieved using listeners will have slightly different parameters.

Table 1-1 describes the parameters associated with alarms.

Table 1-1 Alarm Parameters

Information Description


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. Valid entries are:

  • 1: warning

  • 2: minor

  • 3: major

  • 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

For more information, see "Events, Alarms, and Charging" in Services Gatekeeper Communication Service Reference Guide, another document in this set.

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 section on events, alarms, and charging in Services Gatekeeper Communication Service Reference Guide. Descriptions of each alarm and steps to take to resolve them can be found in these 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” valueold_number” pairs.
