Important Notes

Set alarm masking rules.

To reduce the alarms reported to the eSight Infrastructure Manager during deployment, commissioning, or maintenance, set alarm masking rules.

You have the operation rights for Alarm Settings.

  • Choose Resource > Infrastructure > Alarm > Alarm Operation > Alarm Settings from the main menu. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Basic Setting > Masking Rule.
  • Choose Alarm > Alarm View > Current Alarms from the main menu. Click in the Operation column where the required alarm is located, and select Set Alarm Masking Rule.

Only the users who have management rights on all objects included in the rule can enable, disable, modify, and delete the rule.

Set alarm redefinition rules.

To quickly search for and handle key device alarms to which you pay special attention, you can redefine these alarms (for example, escalate the severities of key alarms). Network maintenance personnel will handle the alarms prior to other alarms and provide a high-quality network assurance service for them. The eSight Infrastructure Manager provides three types of alarm redefinition rules: redefining alarm names, redefining alarm types, and redefining alarm severities.

Choose Resource > Infrastructure > Alarm > Alarm Operation > Alarm Settings from the main menu. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Custom Alarm > Redefine Alarm.

  • Only the users who have management rights on all objects included in the rule can enable, disable, modify, and delete the rule.
  • Threshold alarms cannot be redefined.
  • For the same type of devices with the same alarm, you can redefine the alarm name for these devices.

    For example, if there are three UPSs of the HUAWEI-UPS200G-3K_SNMP type in equipment room A and the three UPSs has the same Communication Between NMS And NE Is Abnormal alarm, you can redefine the name of the alarm for the three UPSs.

Set threshold alarms.

To flexibly manage key counters of some devices, you can define threshold alarms for values of the key counters of these devices. When the value of a key counter is within the defined threshold range, the eSight Infrastructure Manager reports an alarm, enabling you sense the change of the value of this key counter in time. You can set multiple threshold ranges for the same counter based on the alarm severity, including critical, major, minor, and warning.

Choose Resource > Infrastructure > Alarm > Alarm Operation > Alarm Settings from the main menu. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Custom Alarm > Threshold Alarm.

Only the users who have management rights on all objects included in the rule can enable, disable, modify, and delete the rule.

Modbus-compliant devices do not report alarms. The customer should set the threshold alarms based on actual O&M requirements.

Set automatic acknowledgment rules.

To efficiently handle the alarms reported to the eSight Infrastructure Manager, users can enable automatic acknowledgment by severity for the eSight Infrastructure Manager to automatically acknowledge cleared alarms and then move the alarms to the list of historical alarms. Users do not need to handle these alarms manually.

  • You have the operation rights for Alarm Settings
  • You have the permission to manage all devices in all domains.

Choose Resource > Infrastructure > Alarm > Alarm Operation > Alarm Settings from the main menu. In the navigation tree on the left, choose Basic Setting > Auto-Acknowledge Rule.
