Alarm Module (1 of 2) The OPTIMA Alarm module provides the ability to define thresholds and conditions on performance data that can generate alarm events for internal reporting as well as feeding the data into a fault management system. Network Performance Alarms • Define thresholds and conditions on performance data that can generate alarm events • Report within OPTIMA and feed to a fault management system • Define alarms on any KPI or counter System Alarms • OPTIMA supports the creation of system alarms for the OPTIMA system’s performance • Configurable on OPTIMA logs and system KPIs • Hidden from regular users ETL Alarms • OPTIMA supports the creation of Threshold Crossing Alerts (TCA’s) • Raise Performance alarms immediately to the alarm system. during data load • Realise network issues earlier 123 © 2012 AIRCOM International Ltd .

Defining an Alarm
• Alarm definitions are configured within the OPTIMA client
and stored in the OPTIMA database. For Performance
Alarms based on data queries and System Alarms, an
Alarm process interrogates the Performance data and
system logs at user defined intervals for all active Alarm
definitions. TCAs are raised directly as data is loaded as
part of the loading process itself.

• All alarm set and clear events are stored in the OPTIMA

Database and an Alarm Handling component will send
out notifications via Email and SMS as configured. In
addition the OPTIMA SNMP Agent will send notifications
to a Fault Management System.
