Each probe uses a different method to acquire data. Which method the probe uses depends on the target system from which it receives data.
The Probe for Alcatel-Lucent OS-OS acquires data from Alcatel-Lucent systems that support the Alcatel-Lucent OS-OS interface. The probe connects to these systems using TCP/IP, and either acquires existing alarms or gathers new alarms as they are generated. The following types of alarms are produced by these systems:
- Processing errors
- Quality of service errors
- Environmental alarms
For details about the Alcatel-Lucent systems that support the Alcatel-Lucent OS-OS interface, see Devices managed by the EMS system.
