Understanding Alarms

Cisco Unity Connection Serviceability alarms provide information on runtime status and the state of the system, so you can troubleshoot problems that are associated with the system. For example, you can use alarms to determine whether there are any ports enabled to set MWIs. Alarm information includes the catalog, name, severity, explanation, recommended action, routing list, and parameters.

You use the trace and log central option in the Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT) to collect alarms. You use the SysLog Viewer in RTMT to view alarms.

Alarm Definitions

Alarm definitions describe alarm messages—what they mean and how to recover from them.

You search the Alarm Message Definitions page for alarm information. When you click an alarm, a description of the alarm information and a recommended action appears on the Alarm Information page. To help with troubleshooting, the definitions include the alarm name, description, severity, explanation, recommended action, routing list, and parameters.
