2 FAULT MANAGEMENT
Alarm messages on elementary objects (nap, cap, ctp, port, mstp) are received from EML, processed and
propagated to the affected objects.
These alarms are propagated to the following objects:
a)

Transport entities (link connection, trail, path)

b)

Topological object (node, ring, subnetwork, network)

Alarms are generated on paths, Physical Connections, Trails (both HO and MS).
The communication EMLNML is described by SENIM protocol, then these resources are said SENIM
objects. Elementary Alarms are received from EML layer and processed by RM in order to determine the
RM object to be marked as faulty ( RM Object Impacted ). RM provides for the impacted object the Alarm
Severity, the Operational State and the Probable Cause.

This includes the ability of RM to setup alarm propagation rules other than the default ones defined for
physical connections related to virtual elements or based on Line Systems / Radio Links. By default AIS
and UPA on CTPs are never received by RM and this prevent a correct alarm from being propagated on
not terminated paths.
To enable the UPA alarm you can enter the Alarm enabling: LOP,EXBER,UPA command on the selected
CAP. See Figure 2.

3 INTEGRATION OF 1354RM WITH SEC SECURITY SUBSYSTEM


3.1 Introduction
This Chapter deals about the following subjects:

SEC Architecture on 1354RM System

SEC Administration

Alarm Access Configuration

3.1.1 SEC Architecture on 1354RM System


The SEC Subsystem is composed of two permanent processes:

secim process, which is the agent of the Security Subsystem and keep all the informations related
to the users and the system. Secim process is running only on 1354RMIM.

lss process, which is a kind of gate for applications related to user Security profile. One lss process
is instantiated for each workstation/server belonging to the 1354RM system (1 for each presentation
and each IM).
These permanent processes are configured to automatically run after the installation.

The SEC integration on 1354RM, as a first step, is intended only for the integration of Security
Management within AS (Alarm Surveillance). This means that each 1354RM operator using AS is able
to view/manage only alarms coming from Network resources that it can manage.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

In order to have inside SEC Subsystem all the informations concerning Security, SEC is also integrated
in SMF, in order to get informations related to new users, user removal, and initiator management .
Moreover the integration of SEC in SMF is also related to the Backup operation. Each time a new Operator
backup is performed also SEC database is backuped.

SEC Subsystem is provided with a default customization for which on an RM is automatically configured
to run secim process if RMIM and lss process for each kind of RM (IM|US.
The default configurations are put in the directory /usr/sec/1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN>.
In order to distinguish 1354RM SEC processes from the 1353SH ones the RM processes are called
<process_name>_1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN>.
The SEC configuration is also related to the automatic start of SEC process: in the /etc/inittab file is inserted
1
line
for
each
permanent
SEC
process.
This
line
invokes
the
script
run_SECIM|LSS_1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN> that checks for SEC abilitation to run and launch the
secim|lss_1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN> process. The automatic start of SEC processes is set on runlevel
4 that is the 1354RM runlevel default. No checks are performed on the 1354RM effective runlevel (it
is supposed to be 4).
During Operator Backup and Restore the SEC subsystem is stopped in order to add to the Operator
Informations also Informations related to SEC. The actions related to SEC start and stop are automatically
launched by SMF.
If some problem occurs during SMF>Operator Administration and SEC DB is not updated by the changes
done on RM through the SMF, it is possible to launch the script as snml user :
/usr/sec/integration/script/alignsecdb
This procedure starts from the last successful SEC command and alignes the SEC DB to the actual RM
Security definitions.
If at login time the user is alerted by the Message Box:
Security for 1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN> is not activated.
Please contact your System
Administrator, the problem is that the user is not defined in the SEC DB, or the SEC Subsystem has been
stopped (Restore proc.) or internal error.
N.B.: If the Message doesnt say 1354RM it is belonging to the SEC installed for SH
RESTRICTIONS

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

SEC 5.0 doesnt manage the scheduling time. This means that if an user has a scheduled rule this rule
is applied everytime. This limitation is not due to the integration level but to the fact that SEC 5.0 doesnt
support it.

4 INTRODUCTION TO MAINTENANCE
Maintenance operations consist of several functions that have to be executed following failures on the
network.
Note that the protection network comprises:

Telecommunication network (Network Elements and physical connections)

Control network consisting of 1354RM and 1353SH

Data Communication Equipment (Routers and Bridges)

The maintenance operations inherent to the Routers and Bridges are described in the documentation of
the Routers and Bridges.

4.1 Alarm navigation and fault localization

The paths affected by a failure are automatically rerouted on the available route (spare or main).
Should a Network Element fully breakdown, the system will attempt to reroute all paths crossing it.
Therefore, should one NE breakdown, only local drop traffic would be lost.
The RM Operators control the network on the Workstation through the graphical interface.
The operator is informed on the telecommunication network alarms through:

A1330AS application.
Notice that from 1354RM Rel.5.2.B on, alarms reported at 1330AS application are ONLY those
affecting the resources managed by the actually logged operator. This mainly applies to VPN
operators.

The path diagnostic concerns the following attributes:

Path Alarm status

Path working status

4.2.1.1 Path Alarm status


Regardless the path alarm status, navigate the path from the Alarm Counter Summary
N.B.

The Path Alarm Status is Cleared if the path operational status is Enabled ( InService ), this
implies that a path using its spare route is not alarmed.

4.2.1.2 Path working status


The Path working status can be visualized on the Path List.
All the statuses whose description contains the ing suffix are of the workinprogress type. Hence the
path is in this status only for a certain period of time; the path should assume the Normal condition when
a certain timeout has expired. This condition does not require the Operators intervention. He must
intervene if one of the following conditions occurs:

failed to Add Leg

failed to Add Protection

failed to Release Resources

failed to Remove Leg

failed to Remove Protection

failed to Alllocate

failed to Deallocate

failed to Implement

failed to Deimplement

CONDITIONS

The path involved is of the broadcast type. The Operator entered an Add Leg
command on the Path involved.

CAUSES

Lack of resources

ACTIONS

Verify the resources (physical connections and payload structure).


Should the path be protected, the protection can be removed and command
Add Leg can be entered again.

4.2.1.4 Path: Failed to Add Protection


CONDITIONS

The path involved is of the unprotected type. The Operator entered command
Add Protection.

CAUSES

Lack of resources, i.e. the spare resource corresponding to the main one is
not available.

ACTIONS

Verify the resources (payload structure).

4.2.1.5 Path: Failed to Release Resources


CONDITIONS

The Operator has entered an Add Protection or Remove Protection command


on the path.

CAUSES

The cause is due to software latent errors.

ACTIONS

Contact Alcatel Technical Assistance Center.

4.2.1.6 Path: Failed to Remove Leg


CONDITIONS

The Operator has entered a Remove Leg command on a broadcast path.

CAUSES

The cause may be due to the fact that the path section deimplementation has
failed (leg to be removed).

ACTIONS

After having entered the command, perform an inspection at EML and NE layer
level.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

4.2.1.7 Path: Failed to Remove Protection


CONDITIONS

The Operator has entered a Remove Protection command on the path.

CAUSES

The two possible causes are:

ACTIONS

ED

01

1)

if the command has been entered through the With check option, the
failed attempt to remove the protection may be due to the fact that the path
is utilizing the spare route.

2)

if the command has been entered through the No check option, the failed
attempt to remove the protection is due to the unsuccessful spare route
deimplementation.

In the second case above described, inspect the EML and NE layers.

The Trail working status can be visualized on the Trail List.
All the statuses whose description contains the ing suffix are of the workinprogress type. Hence the
trail is in this status only for a certain period of time; the trail should assume the Normal condition when
a certain timeout has expired. This condition does not require the Operators intervention. He must
intervene if one of the following conditions occurs:

failed to Add Protection

failed to Release Resources

failed to Remove Protection

failed to Alllocate

failed to Deallocate

failed to Implement

failed to Deimplement

failed to configure

failed to Remove

failed to Align SNCPs

Add Protection.

CAUSES

Lack of resources, i.e. the spare resource corresponding to the main one is
not available.

ACTIONS

Verify the resources (payload structure).

4.2.2.5 Trail: Failed to Remove Protection


CONDITIONS

The Operator has entered a Remove Protection command on the path.

CAUSES

The two possible causes are:

ACTIONS

1)

if the command has been entered through the With check option, the
failed attempt to remove the protection may be due to the fact that the trail
is utilizing the spare route.

2)

if the command has been entered through the No check option, the failed
attempt to remove the protection is due to the unsuccessful spare route
deimplementation.

In the second case above described, inspect the EML and NE layers.

5 PATH/TRAIL ALLOCATION FAILURES


5.1 Introduction
Path/Trail allocation failures are localized in the browser Path/Trail list. Selecting the involved path/trail and
clicking on the Show Failure Information Tool button, the Netscape browser application starts and
displays all information relevant to the failure.
The failure identification tool is based on Internet technologies, such as HTML, Java programming
language and HTTP protocol.
The allocation failure of a path or trail is detected by the user by looking at the transport to allocate, whose
configuration state goes to Failed to allocate. This state is displayed in the path or trail list.
The information provided in case of allocation failure are summarized in Figure 37. on page 99, namely:

OBSTACLES AND UNSATISFIED CONSTRAINTS are managed with the following structure:

OBSTACLES. This problem type is described by a problem description which helps in solving
the problem.

UNSATISFIED CONSTRAINTS. A Constraint List is provided, indicating the failed constraint(s)

OBSTACLES AND UNSATISFIED CONSTRAINTS. Both Problem description and Constraint


List are provided.

Hints: Deallocate some paths/trails which use the same routing link or change the payload
configuration in order to create new link connections at the proper rate.

Improper Payload Configuration


Explanation: No one hop routing link exists related to a physical connection. This can be due
to an improper payload configuration or to the presence of a user defined HO trail
Hints: Try to change the payload configuration or split the HO trail.

Unsatisfied Constraints
Explanation: One or more of the constraints given to the path/trail cannot be satisfied
Hints: The only way to allocate the path/trail is to remove/modify some constraints

6 DIAGNOSTIC OF THE NPE RING


6.1 User Presentation
The protection status reporting window displays the current status of the MS SPring, in terms of:

triggers =external commands and/or failure/degrade conditions. The nodes whose triggers are being
served are named served nodes. A served node has at least one trigger served and may have some
pending triggers.

the reaction of the ring to those triggers, namely what triggers are being served, and which ones are
pending. (waiting to be served, either because they are at lower priority, or there are specific protocol
rules). The nodes that have no triggers or only pending ones are called intermediate nodes.
N.B.

The protection status reporting screen is neither intended to display the status of the K1K2
signaling, nor the status of the physical switches. With the 2F MS SP ring application, the
bridge&switch at multiplex section level always occurs at served nodes, whereas protection
channels passthrough is made by intermediate nodes. With the 4F MS SP ring application,
bridge&switch at AU4 level may take place at whatsoever node, depending on the distribution
of traffic.

It should be noted that according to the MS SP ring protocol rules any of the following scenarios may occur:

no trigger is present, no protocol request (namely, K1K2 code other than noRequest) is signaled on
the ring;

1 trigger is present, 1 protocol request is signaled and served;

N (>1) triggers are present, N protocol requests are signaled, only 1 is served (higher priority);

N triggers are present, N protocol requests are signaled and served (same priority);

N triggers are present, N protocol requests are signaled, none is served (same priority, but not
allowed to coexist).

1 trigger is present and served, no protocol request is signaled (1);

M (>1) triggers are present, N (<M) protocol requests are signaled, only 1 is served (higher priority);

M triggers are present, N (<M) protocol requests are signaled and served (same priority);

M triggers are present, N (<M) protocol requests are signaled, none is served (same priority, but not
allowed to coexist).
(1) The Lockout of Working channels commands make the scenario even more complicated, as those

commands are not signaled but are actually served, in the sense that they influence the behavior of
the node to which they are addressed.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

The window can display up to 16 node icons (see Figure 57. )

6.1.1 MidProtocol Role ( NODE CONDITION ) attribute


Two node icons are associated to the values of the ConfigurationState attribute od the
MSSPRingProtectionBlock MOC:

ConfigurationState = virtual, icon

ConfigurationState = enabled, icon

ConfigurationState = active, icon


When the ConfigurationState is virtual for a node (because the relevant TFEP fails) an allgrey icon
(the virtual node icon) is displayed as a placeholder for that node, but no additional information can be
displayed on top of that icon about that node (see Figure 58. ).

Figure 58. ConfigurationState = virtual icon


The virtual node icon being displayed means that the MSSPRING is not configured at the node.
When the ConfigurationState is either enabled or active for a node, the node icon shown in
Figure 60. is displayed. Such an icon then acts as a background for all the icons associated to the
attributes of the MSSPRingProtectionBlock MOC.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

The node icon always reports the actual condition of the node in terms of the protocol role the node
is playing to react to the MSSPRING triggers, and the external commands being stored to the
node. If the condition required by the RM and the actual node condition do not match, the not
aligned indication is displayed along with the node icon.

The node icon is a rectangle plus arrows that represent the fiber optics to connect the nodes to each other.
Plus, the node icon features a number of rectangles (see Figure 60. ) to hold icons associated to all the
attributes of the MSSPRingProtectionBlock MOC:

the icon for the MidProtocolRole attribute;

the icon for the WestProtocolRole attribute;

the icon for the EastProtectionRole attribute;

the set of six icons for the WestRingActiveCondition, WestSpanActiveCondition,


WestRingPendingCommand, WestSpanPendingCommand, WestLockoutWorkingRing, and
WestLockoutWorkingSpan on the West side of the node icon;

the set of six icons for the EastRingActiveCondition, EastSpanActiveCondition,


EastRingPendingCommand, EastSpanPendingCommand, EastLockoutWorkingRing, and
EastLockoutWorkingSpan on the East side of the node icon;

the icon for the FailureOfProtocol to be placed outside the node icon next the bottom left and
righthand corner;
The reason for providing each node icon with 6 icons for the local commands comes from the combinations
of active and pending commands that are allowed to coexist at each node.

The central rectangle with a black triangle in it representing the NE is the place where the values of
the MidProtocolRole are displayed (see Figure 61. ).
When MidProtocolRole = idle and all other attributes are = null, no additional icon is placed on top of
the node icon, so that all commandrelated rectangles still look gray to show that no external command
is stored to the node, namely either active or pending and the rectangles on the side of the central triangle
both looking green, to mean that both the East and WestProtocolRole are in an idle condition, namely
the node is neither serving any trigger nor acknowledging a trigger to be served by some other node on
the ring.
Whenever the MidProtocolRole attribute changes from idle to another value, the icon associated to that
new value is displayed on top of the central rectangle with the black triangle in it.
Whenever either the East and WestProtocolRole, or both, change to a value different from null, the icon
associated to the new value (see Figure 62. and Figure 63. ) are displayed on top of the designated green
rectangle.
Whenever any of the external commands is given to and stored by a node to go either active or pending,
the icon associated to the new value (see Figure 67. through Figure 73. ) are displayed on top of the
designated gray rectangle.

8 NMLEML CONSISTENCY CHECKS


In the following are described the consistency audit and consistency download activities that can be
executed either on a single Node or the whole EML DOMAIN.

8.1 NMLEML Consistency Checks ( SENIM )


8.1.1 Consistency audit ( SENIM )
The Consistency Audit activity verifies the misalignments between the EML and the NML. This
activity does not perform any corrective actions.
It is suggested to always execute the Download Disable command before entering command Audit
and in all the following suspected cases:
1)

SH rejects a operation (implementation, payload configuration, ...) on an object that is unknown


to SH. This problem is solved through an Event Logger examination.

2)

The Communication Infrastructure timeout (C.I.) triggers.

3)

The RM database has been restored.

4)

SH has been restarted.

5)

During an RM operation (ex. Payload Configuration), a shutdown of the agent involved has
occurred.

Perform the following operations:


a)

From the Browser execute Configure Download:Disable on the involved EML/NE.

b)

Activate the Network Consistency Agent.

c)

On the involved EML/NE execute the Consistency Audit popup menu.

The available options are:


1)

Global

2)

PDHPort NAP

3)

SDHPort MStp

4)

at HO/LO level

The option Global causes the execution of all the remaining checks 2 ) thru 4 ).

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

The reporting of the operations is performed using multiple messages in order to display the current state
of the ongoing operations (number of not aligned objects, etc... Otherwise from the Browser can be
displayed the misaligned objects (tps) by selecting the Node and executing a Get related items: Not
consistent tps and connections in topology command.

The Consistency Download activity verifies the misalignments between EML and NML and performs
corrective actions in that the NML database is the reference.
a)

Execute a Download Disable command

b)

Activate the Network Consistency Agent ( Run Level=Consistency )

c)

On the involved EML/NE execute the Consistency Download popup menu.

The available options are:


1)

Global

2)

All rights reserved. Passing on and copying of this

8.2 NMLEML Consistency Checks ( TSDIM )


With TSDIM, RM interacts directly with the NEs and directly manages alignment, consistency, isolation
and download enable / disable.
8.2.1 Download disable management (

TSDIM )

The operator is able to specify for TSDIM NEs the download disabled / enabled mode (download enabled
mode is the default condition)
When a NE is in download disabled mode, no information exchange is performed between RM and
the NE and all changes are buffered in the RM MIB.
Objects in the RM MIB that, as a consequence of the download disable mode, are not aligned with the NE,
are marked with the value of the consistency status attribute (not aligned).
Nodes that have at least one not aligned object are put in a not aligned state.
When the download disabled mode is removed and the NE is reachable, RM data are downloaded to NEs.
If the download disabled mode is removed and the NE is not reachable, the operation is rejected.
If problems are detected during the download, the NE is put in isolation mode.
During the downloading activity on a given NE, all concurrent operations requested by RM operator and
involving the same NE, will wait for download completion.
The maximum time to wait is configured as a global RM value.
When the timeout condition is detected before download completion, the operator requested operation
fails and a retry must be executed.
8.2.2 Ne isolation detection and recovery (

TSDIM )

RM is able to detect not reachable NEs as a consequence both of problems in the EML, in the DCN or
in the NE.
When a NE is in download enabled mode and is not reachable, RM behavior is similar to the one
described for the download disable mode.
Elementary alarms are correlated to the impacted transport entity allowing a better identification of the
transport entity impacted by the isolation problem.
The isolation is detected as a consequence of a failure of an operation addressed to the NE.
The recovery from the isolation is detected by means of a slow polling performed by RM on the isolated
NE.
When an isolated NE is detected as reachable, the download is automatically started.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

During downloading activity, the same considerations made for download disable to download enable
transition are applicable.
The OS isolation alarm received by SH and the SH isolation alarm detected by mean of a slow polling
performed by RM are reported as alarms at the RM user interface.

8.2.3 Consistency download management (

TSDIM )

The operation is available for TSDIM NEs while1354RM is in normal online runlevel.
For QB3* NEs (SENIM managed) the consistency download policy remains unchanged.
The operation is available when the NE is not isolated and in download enabled mode. If the
communication is lost during the download, the operator is informed at user interface and the NE is left
in the download enabled mode; when the communication is resumed no automatic restart of the
consistency download is performed.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

When a Ne is in the consistency download phase, all the configuration changes on the specific NE are
refused if impacting on the real NE configuration (i.e. the implementation of a subnetwork connection is
refused but not the creation since an allocated connection doesnt have any image in the NE).
As a consequence of this limitation, an activity on a transport entity (e.g. the path implementation) or on
a topology that has impact on a NE where the consistency download phase is ongoing, will fail (e.g. the
path implementation will fail but the path allocation will not).

8.2.4 Consistency Status (

TSDIM )

All rights reserved. Passing on and copying of this

The following table gives an overall mapping of the values of consistency status and consistency activity.
Table 4. Values of Consistency Status attribute.

Consistency
Status

Semantic

Normal

The object in the RM MIB is fully aligned with the equivalent object(s) in the NE MIB.

Planned

The object exists only in the RM MIB in a planned state.


This is the case for example of allocated subnetwork connections, virtual CAPs etc.

Not aligned

RM MIB and NE MIB are different because the RM operator has requested a change
in RM MIB causing a nonalignment.
This is a semi permanent state when the Node is in Download disabled Mode or Isolated.
If the Node is moved to the appropriate state (i.e. download enabled and NE reachable), the system forces a download (automatic download).
If the Node is Reachable and in Download enabled the object is in the aligning state
The RM MIB and the NE MIB are not in line because an audit activity detects a non
alignment in download disable mode.
As in previous state, objects in this state are automatically downloaded when the NE
is reachable and in download enabled.
If the consistency audit is executed on transport entities and in download enabled
mode, the consistency status is set to config. mismatch

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

N.B.

The NE comes out of the isolation state and during the isolation the object
has been modified inside the NE. RM using the NE event logger detects
the problem and marks the objects in order to avoid a global consistency
audit.

Failed to align

The object in the RM MIB is not aligned with the equivalent objects in the NE MIB
as a result of a failure in the downloading performed from the Not aligned state.
Objects in this state are not automatically downloaded unless a new change is performed on the object or during a consistency download.

Config Mismatch

The object has been found not consistent during a consistency audit performed on
transport entities while in download enabled.

Aligning

This is a temporary value that is present only when forcing of attributes on NE is executed.

8.2.5 Consistency audit management

The operation is available for TSDIM NEs while the RM system is in normal online runlevel.
This is an improvement respect to previous versions where the operation was only possible with RM set
to consistency run level (i.e. read/only mode).
Two types of consistency audit are available:

Mark :
differencies are marked. These differencies will be taken into account and downloaded during the
operations of enabling the download and isolation recovery.

Notify:
differences are marked and wil be not taken into account during the operations of enabling
download or isolation recovery.

The consistency audit is available on the Node and on the NE, only if the NE is not isolated and the
1354RM is in Download Disable mode.
Consistency audit on transport / topology entities
The consistency audit on transport entities is available in download enabled mode.
The consistency audit on transport entities is executed only in the notify mode.
The not aligned objects are marked with a particular value of the consistency status :Config. mismatch.
Objects with this value of the attribute are not automatically downloaded when the NE becomes reachable
or when the download state becomes enabled.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

The transport entities affected by a consistency audit are locked with a specific attribute of the working
state (auditing).

During the consistency download on the Node, all the incoming requests are rejected.
8.2.5.2.1 NE is again reachable
All operations queued before the event of NE again reachable are executed first.
Only not aligned objects are taken into account.
8.2.5.3 Download disabled to enabled transition
All current operations on the NE must be completed before serving the transition.
8.2.5.4 Startup / Restart scenario
RM elementary objects are taken into account by layers in a server to client order: physical ports, NAPs,
MSTPs, HOCTPs, HO connections, HOTTPs, LOCTPs, LO connections.
8.2.5.5 Ne reachable to unreachable transition
All the current operations on the NE must be completed considering the NE unreachable even if the state
changes again before the end of the current operations.
8.2.5.6 Download enabled to disabled transistion
All the current operations on the NE must be completed before serving the transition. For these operations
the NE has to be considered as still in download enabled.

A specific alignment information table is used to improve reporting during alignment phase.
Contained information
This table contains the following Information for each object with a consistency status
different from normal:

phase where the problem was detected: Consistency audit (Mark or Notify),

agent_name : name of controlled agent

agent_type : it specifies the agent handling type. It can be set either as general (for process
managed as normal Unix processes) or hpov (for process managed by means of ovstart and
ovstop HPOV function).

agent_image : (this entry is meaningful only for agent with agent_type = general)
absolute path name of the executable agent image. It is also possible to indicate script file that
starts the executable image inside if it uses exec Unix command.

agent_params : (this entry is meaningful only for agent with agent_type = general)
agent parameters used by the executable image, or script, in the startup phase. In the
parameters description the spaces are replaced by commas.

agent_child (n lines) : child process names, number of its instances that are controlled by PMC
and max. memory size for each instance (this has the same meaning of the agent_max_size)
parameter. A new line exists for each agent child process.

agent_start_wait : (this entry is meaningful only for agent with agent_type = general)
timeout (number of seconds) to wait before PMC can check the correct agent initialization after
its startup.

agent_shut_wait : (this entry is meaningful only for agent with agent_type = general)
timeout (number of seconds) to wait before PMC can check the correct agent termination after
its shutdown.

agent_mon_interval : number of seconds between two consecutive polling operations on the


agent.

agent_max_size : maximum memory size (in Kb) occupied by the agent. If this value is reached
and the monitoring function is enabled, an automatic agent shutdown and restart will be
executed. If the monitoring function is disabled, no restart is performed and the agent is
displayed with the WRONG status.

agent_trace_location : directory or file containing the trace information associated to the


process.

agent_trace_default : it specifies the default trace file to be visualized, between the ones
displayed to the operator. Typically this multiple trace files selection is between the agent trace
file and its child process trace files.

agent_run_level : it specifies all run levels the controlled agent belongs to.

agent_ps_info : name of controlled agent to use searching it into a ps ef list. This option has
to be specified only if this name differs from the one indicated.

agent_actions_name : Ordering number and actions name for controlled Agent.

agent_actions_command : Ordering number and command for controlled Agent. In the


command description spaces are replaced by commas.

able to perform operations of alarrm alignment of the local (WS) OVW data base to the
SNML_IM data base.

SDH network synchronization by site for this map, (DEFAULT=FALSE) if true, means that the
alignment will be executed geographically. If false will be executed logically. This field is effective only
if SDH network synchronization is enabled. Note that on geographical map only view operation can
be performed.

SDH synchronize ports for this map (DEFAULT=TRUE) means alignment of the local OVW data to
SNML_IM data for the data relevant to the ports.

SDH set attribute in creation enabled (DEFAULT=FALSE) means that the application will open the
View/Set attributes for each object added. (Not used)

SDH delete operation enabled on implemented object (DEFAULT=FALSE), if true means that it is

All rights reserved. Passing on and copying of this


document, use and communication of its contents
not permitted without written authorization from Alcatel.

PURPOSE
Paste the symbols in the cut buffer ( usually NEs from Available NE submap ) onto a submap in the open
map.
Paste is useful for:
Moving a symbol from submap to submap.
Populating a submap with symbols from other submaps of your own choosing.
CONDITIONS
The paste operation is local to the submap you are pasting.
Paste is the second half of the cut and paste operation. Paste places all the symbols that are stored in the
cut buffer onto the open map.
Symbols in the cut buffer may be from a single submap, or from multiple submaps of the open map. All
symbols are pasted onto a single submap.
Effects of Automatic Layout
OVW pastes symbols in the New Object Holding Area for each submap in which automatic layout is
disabled (or set to no layout).
OVW pastes symbols into the submap layout on submaps in which automatic layout is enabled.
PROCEDURE

5.4 Edit: Delete: From the Map

Delete the symbol of an object from of the open map.


CONDITIONS
The delete operation is the same as the cut operation except that symbols are not placed in the cut buffer.
HP OpenView Windows deletes them.
PROCEDURE
To delete a symbol or symbols from all submaps of the open map:
a)

Select one or more symbols in the submap.

b)

Select Edit: Delete : From All Submaps.

HP OpenView Windows displays a confirmation box.


c)

Click [OK].

All symbols representing the selected objects are deleted.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

When symbols are deleted only from OVW (using the local delete command) it is normal that no deletion
is performed in RM MIB and, as a consequence, the next time that an upload is performed from the MIB
the objects will appear again. The delete command local to OVW should be used only by the system
administrator in conjunction with an appropriate map synchronization level in order to create maps with
a reduced number of network elements for path operators.

13 BROWSER
13.1 Introduction
The Browser is a Motif based application which provides multiple navigation views. It supports full view
of MIB data objects or tailored views. The commands available in the browser depend on users profile.
The Browser supports:

Single/multiple selection operations

Pulldown menu with generic and/or object specific commands

Popup menus with generic and/or object specific commands

Drag and drop operation for interworking between applications

Help on item (Balloon help). A textstring describing the function is presented if you leave the
mouse more than one second on the functional button/object.

Contextsensitive help. If you select the object and the pulldown menu Help on selected
object, the Worldview application starts and displays automatically the description of the
selected object class.

The Browser is based on the approach to enable navigation into all, a portion or a view of the containment
tree.
Objects are presented with:

An icon related to the class (a bitmap) that can be related to one or more attribute values.
Examples:

class NE with bitmap depending on Type

class ET with bitmap depending on ET type and stm type values

A color relevant to an attribute value (e.g. implementationStatus)

A label related to one or more attribute values

Additional labels/option buttons/texts or multicolor icon (pixmaps) displaying attribute values

An alarm icon that appears only when the object is alarmed, whose color is related to the alarm
status value.

14 BROWSER: DRAWING WINDOWS


The Browser application includes the possibility to display several drawing windows, which are helpful in
managing the controlled network.

14.1 Introduction
Drawing windows support:

Single/multiple selection operations

Pulldown menu with generic and/or object specific commands

Icon Bar generic commands

Dynamic Icon Bar depending on selected class

Popup menus with generic and/or object specific commands

Help on item (Balloon help). A textstring describing the function is presented if you leave the
mouse more than one second on the functional button/object.

Contextsensitive help. If you select the object and the pulldown menu Help on selected
object, the Worldview application starts and displays automatically the description of the
selected object class.

14.9 Path/Trail Routing view


This view displays the complete path route including the main resources dedicated to the selected path.
Examples of Path Routing views are shown in Figure 73.
From the Path Routing view you can display the route report of the path by entering the command View:
Report: Route full. An example of report is shown in Figure 75.
The Path Routing view wholly represents the connectivity objects belonging to a defined path.
The view (see Figure 73. ) is subdivided into vertical columns (named Main, Spare, Service), each of
which represents a whole route.
Two cases can be distinguished:

in case of an unprotected path the Main route is only available;

if the path is of the SNCP protected type, the Main route and the Spare one are available;

if the path is of the D&C SNCP protected type, all the route graphical representations are present:

Main

Spare (more than one spare route can be present)

different service routes

The number of service and spare connections depends on how the path has been constructed.
Moreover if the path is broadcast, the different legs are separately represented.
The main and spare routes are represented for each leg if the path is of the broadcast and protected type.

on the upper lefthand side the connection in topology icon at network level
From the first row on are listed the connections in topology at subnetwork level and eventually the
first connection in topology at level of Elementary Topology (ET).
Note that for each connection in topology, a continuous vertical line permits to identify the end points.
If one connection in topology is inside one route only, the vertical line directly connects the TPs (TTPs
or CTPs) involved.

On the righthand side of the different connections in topology the first end point (NAP) is depicted, hence
in the column are displayed the CTPs and the link connections connecting the CTPs belonging to different
nodes.
The link connection icon contains the label describing the relevant payload position.
The representation of the Switch connections in topology ( either Switch or Bridge & Switch ) contains
an icon (Resource Type) indicating the actual switch status. It can be:

M
S

Main
Spare

The switch is set at Main


The switch is set at Spare
It is used only for a D&C type switch, i.e. for the service type connections.
It indicates that the switch is set at Service.

The connection in topology of the Switch, B&S, or Service type may also contain the Operation Mode
information (bidirectional arrow) which can be Revertive or not Revertive.

15 BROWSER MULTICOLUMN WINDOWS


The Browser application includes the possibility to display several multicolumn lists, which can be iconified
to the main Browser window.

15.1 Introduction
Multicolumn lists windows support:

Single/multiple selection operations

Pulldown menu with generic and/or object specific commands

Icon Bar generic commands

Dynamic Icon Bar depending on selected class

Help on icons (Balloon help). A textstring describing the function is presented if you leave the
mouse more than one second on the functional button

Contextsensitive help. If you select the object and the pulldown menu Help on selected
object, the Worldview application starts and displays automatically the description of the
selected object class

Statistical counters related to displayed attributes

Counters graphs which displays the changes of some attributes value

executed by pulldown menu (File:Print all)

Displayed related items. It navigates the selected object(s) on browser main window. The children
chooser is automatically proposed (Main related items). This operation can also be executed from
pulldown menu (Actions:Display:Main related items)

Show/set attributes. This allows to show attributes of an object or modify the value of the simple
attributes (Modifiable at UI) in the MIB data base. This operation can also be executed from the
pulldownmenu (Actions:Details:show/Set attributes)

Show/set filtering criteria. This allows to reget the multicolumn list with different filtering criteria.

Align items (s). It alignes the data displayed on the screen to MIB data. Almost one object must be
selected. This operation can also be executed from the pulldown menu (Actions:Align item(s))

Refresh this window. It deletes all items and regets all data. Note that all children
views/multicolumns lists are closed. This operation can also be executed from the pulldown menu
(Actions:Align view)

Ordering items. see description of View:Columns menu in paragraph 15.1.1

Sorting items. see description of View:Sorting menu in paragraph 15.1.1

Hide/Show counters. It hides/shows the counters displayed in counters area.

The second row depends on the specific multicolumn list. It typically allows to open external application
(eg. Setup trail, Payload configuration, Path/Trail constraints) or views to create particularly instances or
to correlate objects to each others).

17 PAYLOAD CONFIGURATION
17.1 Introduction to Payload Configuration
The Payload Configuration procedures include:
Configuring the payload
Payload Configuration monitoring
Payload Configuration supervision
AU4 Concatenation. See next document.
17.1.1 Configuring the payload
PURPOSE
The Payload Configuration is the activity executed to define the payload structure at the corresponding
layer.
CONDITIONS
The Payload Configuration can be executed after Network Implementation.
The Payload Configuration can be executed on the following objects:
Rings
Physical Connections
High Order Link Connections
High Order Trails
After Network implementation, the payload configuration at HO of all the rings and physical connections
automatically starts, i.e. the system creates all HOTPs and the HOLCs.
PROCEDURE (FROM NETVIEW)
a)

Select an ET or a physical connection.

b)

Select menu item Tools: Modify Payload. The payload configuration window is open, with the icon
of the selected object (see Figure 94. ). The type of connection appears in the field STM type (STM1
/ STM4 / STM16).

The Modify Payload dialog box contains 3 fields named VC12, VC3 and VC4 which display the current
amounts of virtual containers. (This value is the actual configuration of the dropped object.). A button is
associated to each box.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

c)

Select the choice button associated to the VC(s) to configure.

A new dialog box (Dictionary) is displayed (see Figure 95. ) containing a list of the possible choices for
the selected VC.

183 / 230

For a given STMN, where N=1,4,16 is applied the following formula:

d)

Moving the scroll bar of the dialog box Dictionary, a complete list of the possible choices is displayed.
Select the value, and click OK. The value entered is copied in the relevant field of the Modify Payload
dialog box.

This step must be executed as many times as the payload has to be configured.
e)

Click on SETUP. The payload configuration request is sent. Checks are executed (presence of paths,
configuration state implemented of the object to configure, no other actions in progress). If checks
are successful, the Working State of the involved objects changes to Configuring.

If checks are not successful, a dialog box is presented with the relevant error message. Verify with
the Browser the state conditions of the object to configure.

For successfull payload configuration the final Working states of the involved objects is Normal, otherwise
go to Fail to Configure.
f)

Verify with the Browser the entered payload configuration.

Figure 95. Payload Configuration dictionaries


NOTE 1
This procedure can be executed in the Browser window; the sequence is analog with the exception that
the operator has to drag the object to configure and drop it into the empty area of the Payload Configuration
window.
NOTE 2
This procedure can be executed also on HOLCs and HOtrails; in this case it is possible to select the
structure of each TUG3.
NOTE 3
The configuration of a physConn,/ HOLC / HOTrail within a Ring can be done only if the attribute
globalCfg of the Ring is set to False.
17.1.1.1 Example of a STM1 fiber Low Order configuration
a)

HOCTPs and HOLCs are created following topology implementation.

b)

The HOCAPs are created in correspondance to the HOCTPs. The HOCAP is a trail termination point

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

which is in a client relationship to the HOCTP.


c)

The HOTRAIL is created between HOCAPs.

d)

The LOCTPs and the connected LCs are created.

When the payload configuration is in progress, the operator can supervise the operations performed by
the process. It mainly means:
a)

Verify in the Browser that the working state of the object (e.g. a ring) changes to Configuring.

b)

If the object to configure is a ring, the working state of all the contained physical connections must
be configuring. To do this enter command: Display:Related items:Physical Connections, starting
from a ring.

c)

If the operator wants to supervise the other objects involved in payload configuration, he can issue
a Display:All Related items command on mstrails, Client Link Connections, HOtrails, Low Order Link
Connections, etc.

At the end of the configuration process the working state of the configured objects must return to normal;
otherwise the working state becomes Fail to Configure.
NOTE

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

To execute a Payload Configuration on a connection inside a ring, it is required to change the


globalConfiguration attribute of the ring to which belongs the connection from true to false.( Show/Set
Attributes dialog box).

20.1 Use/Not use


This set of constraints are available for all type of objects dropped in Constraint area.
This constraint type means that the resources must be used (or not) in the proper route (Main, Spare,
Service) of a path/trail. The constraint usage can be (see Figure 111. ):

Use Main

Use Spare

Not Use Main

Not Use Spare

Not Use

Use Service

Not Use Service

Use Main as A

Use Main as Z

Use Spare as A

Use Spare as Z

Use Main&Spare as A

Use Main&Spare as Z
Use Service Forwards
Use Service Backwards

The values Use Service Forwards and Use Service Backwards are significant for paths crossing a
Dual Node SNCP network. See Figure 112.
The user drops as constraint one of the Physical connections between the two D& C nodes, or a link
connection, or a CTP, then must select between Use Service Forwards and Use Service Backwards.
If the user selects Use Service Forwards, the object dropped as constraint will be used as service
route/termination to protect the forward transmission direction (from A to Z or from the left to the right
or the TX)

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

If the user selects Use Service Backwards, the object dropped as constraint will be used as service
route/termination to protect the backward transmission direction (from Z to A or from the right to the
left or the RX)

22 CONNECTIVITY INVENTORY
22.1 General
This application can be launched from the Browser window by selecting the relevant tool button.
The application can also be invoked from the Netview map by means of the pulldown menu Supervision:
Network Connectivity. It is necessary to drag and drop the topology (NTW, SBN, ET) whose connectivity
information is to be analyzed only if started from Browser.
The Connectivity Inventory window which is displayed upon launching the application contains the
following pulldown menus:

File

contains the only option Exit, to close the application.

Actions

contains the following menus:

Get topologies, which allows to further select between first level * and all levels**

Get Connections, to display the connections on the window

Forget Topologies, to delete the topologies actually displayed on the window

Forget Connections, to delete the connections actually displayed on the window

Refresh Connections, to synchronize (actualize) the actually displayed connections

Show Attributes, to display the attributes of the selected connection object

The View pulldown menu only contains the option Displayed info and the Run pulldown menu allows
to start the browser on the selected object.
(*) It performs a get on topologies just one scope level below the dropped topology in the MIB tree, for
example the node contained in the dropped ET.
(**) It asks for which topology below the dropped one you want to perform the get, for example all nodes
contained in the dropped Network

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

Popup menus are also available on the displayed topologies and connections (generic and specific

4.1.10 New Embedded Rules for PM.


New rules have ben added to manage Performance Monitoring activities. They are described in the
following paragraphs.
4.1.10.1 AC_R_PMSNML : Performance Monitoring SNML
PMSNML is the rule allowing full capability of managing PM domain objects. This rule allows to operate
on all the PM Domain data regardless from the ownership (NAD) of PM data, paths and trails
4.1.10.2 AC_R_PMVPN : Performance Monitoring Virtual Private Operator
PMVPN is, in the PM domain, the equivalent of the VPN rule in the path management domain. This rule
allows to operate / visualize PM data, put under monitoring path or trail only related to a given NAD.
Note that if an operator is the owner of a measure then he is the owner of the pmTp and the pmTransport
of the measure.
4.1.10.3 AC_R_PMADMIN : Performance Monitoring Administrator
PMADMIN is, in the PM domain, the equivalent of the PADMIN rule in the path domain. This rule allows
to fully operate on PM domain related to non VPN measures, PM transport etc. and visualize all
the PM data even if belonging to VPN domains.
Non VPN domain is the set of all RM objects with nad<300.
4.1.10.4 AC_R_PMRO : Performance Monitoring Read Only
PMREAD is the read only rule on PM domain. This rule allows to visualize all the PM related
information regardless to the ownership.
4.1.10.5 AC_R_PMVPNRO : Performance Monitoring Read Only VPN
PMREAD is the read only rule on a given NAD. This rule allows to visualize the PM related information
related to a given NAD.

4.1.10.7 Customer Network Management CNM


4.1.11 Customer Rules
A customer Rule is a redefinition of an embedded access rule only in terms of Daily and Weekly
Scheduling.
The customized rules must be defined editing the /usr/snml/ac_info/scheduling.ac.<n> file (where <n>
is the Network Domain Id of the current RM): for each new rule a new line shall be added that contains
the corrispondent embedded rule and the time scheduling.
The information included in the file is :

Name of the Customer Rule


Daily Scheduling: its the validity start & end time of the Rule. Starting and Ending Time has the
format hh.mmhh.mm (hh = hour, mm = minute) and shall be expressed in UTC (Greenwich Time).
An empty value enables the rule in the whole day.
Weekly Scheduling: it contains the days of the week for which the daily scheduling applies. Possible
values are in the range from 0 (Sunday) to 6 (Saturday). An empty value enables the rule in all the
days.
Embedded Rule: it is the name of the embedded rule referred in term of functionalities

An example of the file follows:


#Customer Rule : Daily Scheduling : Weekly Scheduling
AC_R_NEWPADMIN : 08.0019.00
: 1 , 2 , 3, 4 , 5

: Embedded Rule
: AC_R_PADMIN

Customer rules can be inserted in the Initiator definition file .


It can be used only for VPN Initiators

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

EVPN: Enhanced Virtual Private Network Operator.

As VPN except that also free NAPs can be used for path setup.
It can be used only for VPN Initiators

No check is performed to avoid the assignment of a VPN rule to non VPN Initiators and
viceversa.

4.1.12 Integration of 1354RM with SEC Security Subsystem

4.1.12.1 SEC Architecture on 1354RM System


The SEC Subsystem is composed of two permanent processes:

secim process, which is the agent of the Security Subsystem and keep all the informations related
to the users and the system. Secim process is running only on 1354RMIM.

lss process, which is a kind of gate for applications related to user Security profile. One lss process
is instantiated for each workstation/server belonging to the 1354RM system (1 for each presentation
and each IM).
These permanent processes are configured to automatically run after the installation.

The SEC integration on 1354RM, as a first step, is intended only for the integration of Security
Management within AS (Alarm Surveillance). This means that each 1354RM operator using AS is able
to view/manage only alarms coming from Network resources that it can manage.
In order to have inside SEC Subsystem all the informations concerning Security, SEC is also integrated
in SMF, in order to get informations related to new users, user removal, and initiator management .
Moreover the integration of SEC in SMF is also related to the Backup operation. Each time a new Operator
backup is performed also SEC database is backuped.

SEC Subsystem is provided with a default customization for which on an RM is automatically configured
to run secim process if RMIM and lss process for each kind of RM (IM|US.
The default configurations are put in the directory /usr/sec/1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN>.
In order to distinguish 1354RM SEC processes from the 1353SH ones the RM processes are called
<process_name>_1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN>.
The SEC configuration is also related to the automatic start of SEC process: in the /etc/inittab file is inserted
1
line
for
each
permanent
SEC
process.
This
line
invokes
the
script
run_SECIM|LSS_1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN> that checks for SEC abilitation to run and launch the
secim|lss_1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN> process. The automatic start of SEC processes is set on runlevel
4 that is the 1354RM runlevel default. No checks are performed on the 1354RM effective runlevel (it
is supposed to be 4).
During Operator Backup and Restore the SEC subsystem is stopped in order to add to the Operator
Informations also Informations related to SEC. The actions related to SEC start and stop are automatically
launched by SMF.
If some problem occurs during SMF>Operator Administration and SEC DB is not updated by the changes
done on RM through the SMF, it is possible to launch the script as snml user :
/usr/sec/integration/script/alignsecdb
This procedure starts from the last successful SEC command and alignes the SEC DB to the actual RM
Security definitions.
If at login time the user is alerted by the Message Box:
Security for 1354RM_<NTWDOMAIN> is not activated.
Please contact your System
Administrator, the problem is that the user is not defined in the SEC DB, or the SEC Subsystem has been
stopped (Restore proc.) or internal error.
N.B.: If the Message doesnt say 1354RM it is belonging to the SEC installed for SH
RESTRICTIONS

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

SEC 5.0 doesnt manage the scheduling time. This means that if an user has a scheduled rule this rule
is applied everytime. This limitation is not due to the integration level but to the fact that SEC 5.0 doesnt
support it.

If the operator gives a console name, whether an hostname or an IP address, which was just defined into
the $OSWS_FILE, the procedure gives an info message and exits on operator acknowledgment.
When the operator specify an IP address as console name, not defined into the $OSWS_FILE, the
procedure extracts relative hostname from the /etc/hosts and repeats the check in the $OSWS_FILE
using the hostname.

8 BACKUP/RESTORE

All rights reserved. Passing on and copying of this


document, use and communication of its contents
not permitted without written authorization from Alcatel.

It is recommended to perform a backup everytime a topology is modified.

8.1 Introduction
8.1.1 Subsystems and Data Types
Entities belonging to management layers which needs to be backed up are called subsystems, e.g.:

from the eml point of view, each workstation belonging to a 1353SH installation, is a subsystem;
from the snml point of view, each workstation belonging to a 1353SH installation, is a subsystem;
from the snml point of view, its own databases subtree is a subsystem;
from the nnml point of view, its own databases subtree is a subsystem;

Backup and restore procedures operate on a set of subsystems; however, if required, they can operate
on a subset.
Several data types make up a complete subsystem backup/restore. Recommended set of data type is:
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)
f)

Network:
OSconfig:
PM:
Operator:
Alarms:
Log:

network;
operating system data relative to application sphere;
performance monitoring;
operators;
alarms;
applications activity messages.

The SMF function interface gives the possibility to select all or a subset of data types (max. 10), for each
subsystem to backup/restore.
In restore configuration phase, the functionality is able to read the data type set from the data to restore
contents and to give the possibility to restore subtypes for each data type (max.10 different subtypes for
each data type).

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

Subsystem and data type concepts can be briefly summarized:


a)

the smallest entity which can be backed up has the format:


<subsystem><datatype>;

b)

the smallest entity which can be restored has the format:


<subsystem><datatype>[<subtype>];

c)

the operator starts procedures after a phase in which determines a backup or restore configuration,
selecting subsystems on which to operate and the subset of data types for each subsystem.
The following list is an example of backup (or restore) configuration:
snmlNetwork
snmlPM
snmlAlarms
snmlUS1Network
snmlUS1PM
snmlUS1Alarms
eml1MasterOSconfig
eml1MasterOperators

The directory /backup is fixed as root of the directory structure designed for backup and restore
operations.
It has a dynamic structure, which is removed and created at each backup/restore procedure start. The
structure depends on the backup/restore configuration.
The following figure shows the /backup subtree structure on a 1354RM after a backup procedure based
on backup configuration given as example in par.8.1.1.

8.1.3 Using a Magnetic Tape


Backup/Restore procedure write/read data to/from a magnetic tape. The following has to be taken into
account:
a)

only one backup file for each magnetic tape is expected;

b)

an environment variable which specifies the host to which the tape is connected, is defined at product
installation time as
TAPE_SERVER;

c)

the device used is: /dev/rmt/0m;

d)

when executing operations on tape, both backup and restore use a timeout in order to manage
device detection. The procedures evaluate the timeout value taking into account the following va
riables:
TAPE_TRANSFER_RATE: default value is fixed to 300 Kbytes/sec.;

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

TAPE_ACCESS_TIME: the device location has to be taken into account and the possible delay
might be due to the network usage.

a diagnostic window is displayed, giving a warning message for each not provided item.The
possibility that a lot of messages have to be given is very high: so it would be better to maintain the
list of requested but excluded items until the operator exits from backup functionality or builds a new
backup configuration or forces the closure using the Motif frame menu of the diagnostic window.
Select the OSs to be backed up and the Backup option (Network, Operator, .....) and confirm by
pressing Start. A System Message alerts: Network backup started, configuration functions not
available. The Backup monitoring window is presented (See Figure 38. ).
On start request a subwindow, shown in the following figure, is opened. By this window the operator
is able to monitor backup procedure progress and execute an abort operation, if necessary.

Configuring a backup can cause the following: the operator switches on a set of data types, then selects
a set of subsystems from the Available list and puts into To Backup, but some subsystems do not provide
one or more of the selected data types.
In this case the following behaviours are expected:

8.1.4.1 Handling Backup Execution Failure

All rights reserved. Passing on and copying of this


document, use and communication of its contents
not permitted without written authorization from Alcatel.

The following cases are managed:


a)

if m<n commands fail, for each one of the m items, at the end of the parallel procedure a warning
window is opened indicating the item and its procedure result: the operator has to acknowledge to
close the window by means of a confirmation button. After operator acknowledgment of the last
warning window, this one and the subwindow are simultaneously closed.

b)

if all of n commands fail, the Backup procedure is interrupted and an information window is opened
to inform the operator that the configured backup execution is totally failed. After operator
acknowledgment, the information window and the subwindow are simultaneously closed.

8.1.4.2 Saving on Tape subwindow


After the Backup execution, if Disk&Tape option was selected, the subwindow shown in the following
figure is opened.

The subwindow appearance and behaviour is the same as that described for the Backup execution
subwindow, with only one exception in the label for Header Area, that is:

During saving on tape backup data procedure, if errors occur using tape, a warning window gives the
operator a message and the possibility to retry or abandon the operation. If the operator choses to
abandon, the information window and the subwindow are simultaneously closed.
8.1.4.4 Timeout
An environment variable is defined. It gives, in seconds, the timeout value for backup operations:
BCK_RES_TIMEOUT.
If the variable is not assigned, is adopted a default value fixed to 7200 seconds.
8.1.4.5 Periodic Action reference
In NML products a backup procedure is provided. It is called periodic action. It differs from the Backup
described in this chapter, since it backups Network data type only, related to subsystem of IM WS
installation.

1AA 00014 0004 (9007) A4 ALICE 04.10

An implementation requirement is to achieve a unique Backup procedure which is possible to launch


whether as graphical SMF or as periodic action in background without display.
