Overview of M2000
M2000, using two kinds of working mode, including client and server terminals. The software of M2000 is made up of client, server and network element adapter, which are independent from each other. Client software runs on client terminal, while the server and network element adapter software run on the server terminal. How do M2000 configure the net? Especially for BSC6000? First, M2000 sends the order, all the configuration data is written into an XML file. Secondary, uploaded to M2000 by FTP, then the configured server will fetch the network element¶s configuration data according to MIT trees¶ related interfaces of BSC6000. So, without making any operation of data configurations in M2000 we can see all the messages of cells and carrier frequency managed by BSC6000.

which results in failing to read the real data. it would also delay the normal period traffic statistic to archive. High amount of data query leads to deadlock of database Cleaning the database and restart M2000 server are needed. . Due to bad transmission condition between M2000 and BSC. LTD. M2000 version V2R3C01B065SP04 and its subsequence version can solve this problem. for BSC6000. error files will be created. several scenes are described below: The size of original network element reporting file in M2000 server is 0K. we must strictly control measurement object activation data related to Neighbor cell measurement.
