Viewing Alarm Definitions and Adding User-Defined Descriptions

This section describes how to search for and view an alarm definition in Cisco Unified Serviceability.


Tip Unified CM BE and Connection only: You can view Cisco Unity Connection alarm definitions in Cisco Unity Connection Serviceability. You cannot add user-defined descriptions to alarm definitions in Cisco Unity Connection Serviceability.

Cisco Unity Connection also uses certain alarm definitions in Cisco Unified Serviceability, and they must be viewed in Cisco Unified Serviceability. Be aware that alarms that are associated with the catalogs in Table 5-1 are available for viewing.


Procedure


Step 1 In Cisco Unified Serviceability, choose Alarm > Definitions.

The Alarm Message Definitions window displays.

Step 2 From the Find alarms where drop-down list box, choose the catalog for which you want to view the definitions.

Step 3 From the Equals drop-down list box, choose a catalog of alarm definitions or enter the alarm name in the Enter Alarm Name field. For a list of System Alarm Catalog options, see Table 5-1. For a list of CallManager Alarm Catalog options (Unified CM and Unified CM BE only), see Table 5-2.

Step 4 Click the Find button.

The definitions list displays for the alarm catalog that you chose.


Tip Multiple pages of alarm definitions may exist. To choose another page, click the appropriate navigation button at the bottom of the Alarm Message Definitions window or enter a page number in the Page field. To change the number of alarms that display in the window, choose a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.


Step 5 In the list, click the hyperlink alarm definition for which you want to view alarm details, such as a description, alarm severity, and so on.

The Alarm Information window displays.

Step 6 If you want to add information to the alarm, enter text in the User Defined Text pane and click the Save button.


Tip To delete the description from the User Defined Text pane, click the Clear All button.


Step 7 To return to the Alarm Message Definitions window, choose Back to Find/List Alarms from the Related Links drop-down list box; then, click Go.
