SUM Alarm used to monitor the status of the system Automation Servers

Issue

The SUM Alarm does not generate an alarm when an Automation Server goes offline

Environment

Automation Server

SUM Alarm

Cause

The online status of the Automation Servers needs to be monitored so that an alarm can be generated if any of them go offline. Using the following configuration does not work.

1. Create a sum alarm
2. Add Source and set to AS path (e.g /SWXnetwork/servers/AS1). Replacing AS1 with a * makes no difference
3. Add System alarm ID and set to "Server Offline"
4. Add Alarm State and set to "Selection as required"

Resolution

Options that do work

Option 1

System Alarm ID = Server offline


Alarm Text = */Servers/*


Alarm State = Alarm and Alarm Acknowledge - (Select as required).

Option 2

  • System Alarm ID = Server offline
  • Alarm State = Alarm and Alarm Acknowledge - (Select as required).
  • Source Name = AS1 or AS*

 

Option 3

  • System Alarm ID = Server offline
  • Alarm State = Alarm and Alarm Acknowledge - (Select as required).
  • Source = /SWXnetwork/System/Server Communication/To/AS* - (As the alarm is in the ES, the path comes from the ES).
