Alarms asserted on WA_Link and not the connected Devices.

We are missing alarms on remote sites because Spectrum is suppressing the device and not generating alarms on the upstream devices. This is only happening on devices connected to WA_Link models, and alarms are asserted on the WA_Link.


What options are there for configuring the behavior of Fault Isolation for WA_Link models?


The "LinkFaultDisposition" attribute (0x129e2) controls the behavior of the alarming.

There are three possible options for the "LinkFaultDisposition": 

  • BothPortsAndLink (0) - Alarms are generated on both the connected ports and on the WA_Link model (default)
  • PortsOnly (1) - Alarms are generated on the connected ports/ the WA_Link is suppressed
  • LinkOnly (2) - Alarms are generated on the WA_Link model, and the ports are suppressed.
