    Hi,

    Could someone explain

    - what the difference is between the Condition attribute 0x1000a, which is a string associated to a number. Ex: "suppressed (5)" and the Condition_Value attribute 0x1000b which is just a number ?

    - what are the mechanism inside Spectrum that changes 0x1000a and 0x1000b ? Especially I would like to know what can set the Condition to "suppressed(5)", and what can turn it back to "normal"

    - How it can happen that both attributes don't get the same value: I have seen cases where the Condition is 5 but the Value is 0. I have seen that on interfaces (Gen_IF_Port model type) and on "User Customisation" models.

    Thanks,

    Veronique

    Hi,

     

    please take a look in the documentation

    Spectrum_Modeling_IT_Infrastructure_Admin_ENU.pdf

    And search "Attributes Determining Condition and Rollup Condition"there is a section explaining it.

    The condition reflects the color of the model (green, orange, brown, blue, red, gray, yellow).

    The Condition_Value will be used in rollup condition of its container.

     

    Gray comes from the fault isolation. And typically pingables are not red when they aren't contactable but blue (value_when_red=0).

     

    This documentation is very important to read and explains the whole mechanisme.

     

    Regards,
