Configuring the Generic Socket Probe to use NetAct 7 ASCII NBI Events
Additional changes are required to the Generic Socket Probe properties file and the ObjectServer for these additional rules to be used by the probe.
To configure the Generic Socket Probe to use the additional rules provided by the Probe Extension Package, follow these steps:
- Set the following properties in the Generic Socket Probe properties
Header : "#S#"
Footer : "#E#"
ParseAsLines : 1
- Obtain the ASCII alarm format file used by the NetAct system. The default format file is stored in /opt/oss/NSN-fmascii/smx/fmascii-format/
- Backup the netact.map.rules file.
Use the NetActConfigParser utility program to generate a mapping rules file for your alarm format.
For example, java -jar NetActConfigParser.jar -input filename.xml
Where filename is the name of the alarm format file obtained in step 2.
- Start the probe.
