Missing Alarm Definitions from SMF_ALARM_DEFN Table Causes Big Number of Alarms Being Stored With "-1" ALARM_TYPE_ID in SMF_ALARM_MESSAGE Table (Doc ID 2129831.1)

Last updated on APRIL 28, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 5.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

There are 2 types of errors in m3ua_if log which are inserted with "-1" ALARM_TYPE_ID in SMF_ALARM_MESSAGE table:

There are cases when this error is considered "normal", as it is generated in situation when one of the call parties is loosing the signal.
The problem is that having a big number of these alarms stored as "-1" in the SMF_ALARM_MESSAGE table will make impossible filtering these type of alarms in order not to miss some other important alarms.
