Introduction:

We are sometimes confused why an alarm is opened in Spectrum and in most of those cases it stems from vague descriptions in the alarm (loaded by developers). I can find the alarm in the event configuration tool and I can find the cause code. Is there a way to find out what triggers that cause code without hunting and pecking through suspected MIBs?

Instructions:

A couple of things that may help. When viewing the Event Configuration tool, display the "Generated By" and "Trap Event" columns. If the "Generated By" column is populated, then the event is generated by an Event Rule. When you select the event specified in the "Generated By" column and click on the Event Rules tab, you will see the details of the Event Rule that generates the event.

 

 

 

The Trap Event field is populated if the event is generated from a trap. To find the AlertMap file entry that generates the trap, you can use the following find command executed from the $SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor directory to quickly find the AlertMap file(s):

 

find . -name AlertMap -exec grep 0x00010013 {} \; -print
