9.2.1. Default Alarm Filter Actions


Alarm Action parameters determine how NetLink II will react when an alarm is generated. The Default Alarm Filter Actions select parameters that are applied to all newly defined clues, allowing you to assign identical actions to clues without manually entering parameters for each clue.


•                      Definition of the Default Alarm Action parameters is optional.

•                      Default Alarm Action parameters are only applied to newly defined Alarm Clues.  These defaults will not be applied to PBX Inactivity Alarms or the 80% Full Alarm.

•                      When new Alarm Clues are defined, the default values can be altered or eliminated, as discussed in Section 9.5.1.


The following Default Alarm Action Parameters are available.

21. Action: The default action that will be performed when an alarm is generated. For more information, please refer to Section 12.

22. Phone Number: The default number that will be dialed when an Alarm Clue generates a callout or page action.


Note: For Numeric Paging, this prompt can specify both the Pager phone number and a numeric "message". In this case, the phone number is entered using the following format:


Where PHONENO is the pager number, and MESSAGENOis any user-selected number that will notify the receiver that an alarm has occurred. For example, to dial 555-1212 and send the message "111", the phone number would be defined as "5551212@111#".


23. Pager ID 1: The first default Pager ID number.  If alphanumeric pager notification is selected, this is the first pager dialed when an Alarm is triggered. NetLink II can dial up to three pagers for each clue.

24. Pager ID 2: The second default Pager ID Number.

25. Pager ID 3: The third default Pager ID Number.

26. SNMP Management: The default SNMP Manager, that will receive SNMP Traps generated by Alarm Clues.  IP Addresses for SNMP Managers are defined via the Network Port Configuration Menu, as described in Section 5.4.5.

27. Email/Message To: The default email address(es) that will receive email and text messages generated by Alarm Clues.  This item can select either or both of the two user-defined email addresses, which are defined via the Network Port Configuration Menu, Item 38 (Section 5.4.5.)

28. Message: Defines the default message sent when the alarm action is Alphanumeric Page, Numeric Page, SNMP Trap or Console.

29. Auto Execute:  Sets the default state for the Auto Execute feature.  When enabled, NetLink II will execute the command string defined under item 30 when a Callout or Console action is generated.

30. Execute Commands: The default Auto Execute command string.  This command string will be invoked when Auto Execute is enabled, and a Callout or Console Action is generated.

Example: To send the Site ID Message and then send all alarm records, the Auto Execute Command String would be defined as "03/01,ALM". Note that the ^Bis not included in the command string, and that each command is separated by a slash (/).

31. Send Alarm Record:  Enables and configures the "Send Alarm Record" option for the Alphanumeric Page action.  When enabled, NetLink II will include the record that triggered the alarm in the text that is sent to your Alphanumeric pager.  Please consult your pager service when configuring the Maximum Message Length, Multi-Block Message and Strip Control Codes options.


Note: The "Send Alarm Record" function applies to the Alarm Filters only.  This function is not available to the PBX Inactivity Alarms or the 80% Full Alarm.
