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 can enable or disable alarms to appear as syslog messages on the local server or on a remote server that you specify. You can also set the severity level that you want to appear.
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.
