Processing Alarm Data

The TSM for Avaya Definity G3 collects alarms from devices by issuing display time, display errors, and display alarms commands and parsing the output.

The TSM issues the commands via Telnet and when it has collected all current alarms it disconnects from the device.

The TSM processes the alarm data as follows:
  1. It creates an event for each alarm in the Alarms report.
  2. It attempts to retrieve additional information about each alarm by mapping it to a corresponding error from the Errors report.
  3. It sends the alarms to the ObjectServer.
