On startup, you can instruct the probe to connect to an HTTP port of the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM server, and send a SOAP/XML request to resynchronize all active alarms.

Using the InitialResync property, the probe can resynchronize alarms generated while the network elements managed by the SAM server are either inService (active) or inMaintenance (in the maintenance stage or inactive). The Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM server generates inService alarms when the associated network elements are active, and generates inMaintenance alarms when they are inactive.

To resynchronize only the active network elements and to receive only the inService alarms, set the XMLretrieveUseInService property to 1.

If you have specified a value for the RecoveryFile property, you must create the file manually. The server only sends alarms that have been generated since the timestamp indicated in the recovery file.

If you set the ResynchInterval property to a value greater than 1, the probe periodically resynchronizes with the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM server. If you set the ResyncInterval property to a low value, you may experience performance issues if the probe has to resynchronize large amounts of active alarms each interval.

If you set the Optimize property to 1, the probe optimizes performance by not writing the resynchronized events received from the HTTP request and the JMS events to the log file.
