    Hi everyone

     

    In CA Spectrum 10.2.1 Is posible add columns from the Alarms tab to the Events tab? 

    My intention to pass the columns in the Alarms tab is to extract a report of all the alarms since in the Events tab it is possible to make a filter by date.

     

    I tried to add the following columns and no information is displayed in the fields.

     

    • Network Address
    • Alarm Type
    • Occurrences

     

     

    The file C:\win32app\Spectrum\custom\alarm\config\event-table-config.xml Contains the following lines:

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <table idref="event-table-config"
    xmlns="http://www.aprisma.com"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.aprisma.com
    ../../common/schema/table-config.xsd">

    <column-list>
    <column idref="column-alarmtitle-config">

    <hidden-by-default>true</hidden-by-default>

    <default-width>200</default-width>

    </column>

    <column idref="column-alarmoccurrences-config">
    <default-width>115</default-width>
    </column>

    <column idref="column-alarmtype-config">

    <hidden-by-default>true</hidden-by-default>

    <default-width>200</default-width>

    </column>

    <column idref="column-networkaddress-config">
    <default-width>115</default-width>
    </column>

    </column-list>
    </table>

     

    And I've copied the respective files to the same path.

     

     

    Only the Alarm Title column is the only one that shows information:

     

     

    Could you help me with some tips on this case?

     

    Thanks 

    Manuel

    Hi Jose,

    Not all attributes can be displayed on all objects, simply because they do not exist. For example, Occurrences is an alarm attribute, so it will have no value when added to the Events table. Alarm type would be the same. You can display the event type in the Events table but not the Alarm Type as the object is an event and not an alarm. Similarly, IP address is a device attribute.

    Hi Roger thanks you very much 

     

    Do you know if there is any way to make a report by alert type with contains a search criteria? example: "ORA-12518"

     

    The scenario is as follows.

     

    The client needs a report of all the alerts that contain "ORA-". These log type alerts come from the CA SystemEDGE agent but the Jasper Report 6.3 I am not sure I can perform reports by the search criteria "ORA-" in the MONITORED LOG MATCH TRAP RECEIVED alerts. "I've already done the tests with the Jasper Reports"

     

     

    Do you have any idea how I can extract this report?

     

    I would appreciate your opinion.

     

    Regards 

    Manuel

    Hi Manual,

     

    Unfortunately in the current version there is no “Alarm Domain” so a custom report will not be possible in SRM as of 10.2.1.

    However, you can run an out of the box group “Top N” report  and select the alarm title that you would like to include.

    You are limited to titles there though.  So if its in the body of the alarm then it will not work properly.

     

    Thanks,

    Matt
