Example for Configuring an SMS Gateway to Send Alarm Notifications

Example for Configuring an SMS Gateway to Send Alarm Notifications

In daily network monitoring, O&M engineers can monitor the network status based on SMS messages they receive. This section describes how to configure an SMS gateway on an enterprise campus network to send alarm notifications to O&M engineers.

If multiple remote modes are configured for sending alarm SMS notifications, the alarm SMS notifications can only be sent through the SMS gateway.

Applicable Products and Versions

V300R005C00 or later versions

Networking Requirements

A company's O&M engineer Jack is responsible for monitoring the campus network to ensure normal service operation. Before monitoring the network, Jack needs to configure the remote alarm notification function.

To monitor the network status, Jack has the following requirements:

  • Jack is unable to monitor current alarms all the time, and wants to monitor the network status while handling other work.
  • A large number of devices are deployed on the network, but Jack wants to receive only critical and major alarms of important network devices (N2 at the core layer in this example) on a 24/7 basis.

Requirement Analysis

  • Jack wants to monitor the network status on a 24/7 basis. Therefore, the generated alarm information can be sent to Jack's mobile phone through SMS messages.
  • SMS messages can be sent by an SMS server or an SMS modem. An SMS modem is recommended considering the enterprise scale and cost-effectiveness.
  • Jack only wants to receive critical and major alarms of important devices. Therefore, when setting the remote alarm notification function, set alarm reporting rules to sent only critical and major alarms of important devices to Jack through SMS messages.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Connect the eSight server to the HTTPS SMS gateway.

    1. Log in to the eSight server.
    2. Open the emailconfig_config_esight.properties file in {eSight installation directory}\eSight\AppBase\etc\oms.core\, add useExtensionImpl=HTTP_SMS, and connect the eSight server to the HTTPS SMS gateway.
      NOTE:

      You need to add this configuration file manually. It is unavailable by default.

      useExtensionImpl=HTTP_SMS
    3. Restart eSight.

  2. Set interconnection parameters for eSight and the SMS Server.

    1. Choose System > System Settings > System Interconnection from the main menu.

    2. Choose Set Notified Server > HTTPS SMSGW Server from the navigation tree on the left.
    3. Obtain the interconnection information from the SMS gateway provider, set parameters, and click Test.
      • The mobile phone number set here is used only to test whether eSight and the SMS modem are properly connected, and it is not the one for receiving alarms.
      • If the mobile phone number used for the connectivity test receives the SMS message "This is a test message", the test is successful.

  3. Set the alarm receiver list and mobile phone numbers.

    1. Choose System > System Settings > System Interconnection from the main menu. Choose Set Notified User > User Group from the navigation tree on the left.

    2. Set the alarm receiver list and mobile phone numbers.

      NOTE:

      To send remote notifications, enter personal data including mobile phone numbers and mailboxes. You must comply with local laws or the enterprise's privacy policies and take proper measures to fully protect personal data.

  4. Set remote notification rules.

    1. Choose Fault > Alarm Settings from the main menu. Choose Notification Rule from the navigation tree on the left.

    2. Set alarm receiving parameters.
      • Based on requirement analysis, Jack wants to receive critical and major alarms of core devices on a 24/7 basis. Select core devices in the Alarm Source area. The default values of parameters Alarms and Advanced Settings meet Jack's requirement. Therefore, retain the default settings.
      • Select the user group created in Step 3.

Verification

When network devices generate critical or major alarms, Jack's mobile phone can receive alarm notifications in a timely manner.

Summary and Suggestions

To modify the alarm receiver list or information, Choose System > System Settings > System Interconnection from the main menu and Choose Set Notified User > User from the navigation tree on the left.
