9.5.1. Alarm Clue Definition


To define Alarm Clues, access the Alarm Clue Definition Menu (Figure 9.5) as follows:

1                     From the NetLink II Main Menu, type 25and press [Enter] to display the Alarm Configuration Menu (Figure 9.1).

2                     When the Alarm Configuration Menu appears, type 1(to configure Alarm Filter 1) or 2(Alarm Filter 2), and then press [Enter]. The Alarm Filter Configuration Menu (Figure 9.2) will be displayed.

3                     From the Alarm Filter Configuration Menu, type 3and press [Enter]. The Alarm Clue Definition Menu (Figure 9.5) will appear.

4                     From the Alarm Filter Configuration menu, type 3and press [Enter]. The Alarm Clue Definition menu will be displayed as shown in Figure 9.5.


The Alarm Clue Definition Menu includes the following:

Clue Parameters:

1. Clue Name: This name is used to reference a specific clue when reviewing, altering, or deleting clues. When data is released, records can also be sorted according to the Clue Name matched. Names can be up to 16 characters long, and cannot include <Esc>, <Null>, or quotation marks.


1                     Business Hours Threshold: The number of times that this type of call must occur during defined business hours in order to trigger an alarm. This value can be any positive whole number from zero to 999,999,999. Note that business hours are defined via the Alarm Filter Configuration menu, as described in Section 9.3. (Default = 0.)

2                     Business Hours Duration: Determines how often the alarm counter will be reset during defined business hours.  For example, if the Business Hours Duration is set at two hours, then the counter for this Alarm Clue will be reset once every two hours during defined business hours. (Default = 00:00.)

3                     Non Business Hours Threshold: Determines the number of times that this type of call must occur during non-business hours in order to trigger an alarm. Non-business hours are defined as any portion of the day that is not covered by the business hours specified for the Alarm Counter Schedule, as described in Section 9.3. (Default = 0.)

4                     Non Business Hours Duration: Determines how often the alarm counter will be reset during non-business hours. For example, if the Non Business Hours Duration is set at three hours, then the counter for this Alarm Clue will be reset once every three hours during non-business hours. (Default = 00:00.)



•                      When either of the Duration parameters are redefined, the corresponding alarm counter will be reset to zero.

•                      If the Alarm Review Schedule (Business Hours) is cleared, then the Non-Business Hours Threshold and Duration will be applied at all times, and the Business Hours Threshold and Duration will not be used.


3. Match Parameters: Defines criteria that determine if each record will be flagged as an alarm.  Match Parameters consist of a variable from Alarm Filter Format, a logical operator (see Section 9.6,) and the value that will be matched (e.g., the number dialed).

Example:  If the Alarm Filter Format assigns the variable "A" to the "Number Dialed" field, then A=5551212 tells NetLink II to check this field for the number 555-1212.

Note: Match Parameters may reference several variables, may include several operators, and may also include "AND/OR" conditions. Please refer to the examples in Section 9.9.

Action Parameters (Items 21 - 31): These items determine how NetLink II will react when the counter for this clue exceeds the threshold value. If default Alarm Filter Action parameters have been defined (Section 9.2.1) each prompt will be configured according to the default. Action Parameters for each Clue can be individually defined, and parameters specified by defaults can also be edited.  This allows you to assign different Pager Numbers and etc. to each clue.  For more information, please refer to Section 12.
