Specifying the event extraction method that the probe uses
The probe can either extract all events attached to an alarm (which requires making an additional call to Archive Manager) or it can extract details of just the Originating Event.
You can specify which method the probe uses to extract details of the events attached to an alarm by setting the EventExtraction property to one of the following values:
- AM Method: Using this method, the probe can retrieve details of one or more events that raised the alarm. It requires the probe making an additional call to Archive Manager (AM).
- OE Method: Using this method, the probe extracts from the alarm details of the originating event that raised the alarm from the Originating Event (OE) byte stream. It does not require the probe making an additional call to Archive Manager and so avoids any delays that this may incur.
Note: You can run two SpectroSERVERs in a failover configuration, in which case the probe can be configured to failover to a secondary SpectroSERVER if the primary SpectroSERVER fails. When the probe is connected to the secondary SpectroSERVER, it will always use the OE method to extract details of events attached to an alarm regardless of setting of the EventExtraction property.
