Chapter 1 Introduction to GUI


1.1 Composition of GUI
The GUI refers to the graphic user interfaces. It is provided by BAM server software, client software, and emergency workstation software. The operation and maintenance system (O&M) of the MSOFTX3000 adopts client/server mode. In this mode, the BAM serves as the server. It works as a database as well as a communication channel between the host of the MSOFTX3000 and the maintenance terminals, which are clients in this mode. The BAM server:
z

The BAM manages and maintains the MSOFTX3000. It receives maintenance commands from a local or remote terminal and sends the commands to a specific host or terminal whose answering messages are processed by the BAM.

The BAM stores and transfers data regarding alarms and service measurement. It can maintain the system from multiple aspects and remote ends.

Clients:
z

Client software can be installed on the BAM server, ordinary workstations and emergency workstations. On clients, operators can perform varieties of operations.

Note: On the BAM, ordinary workstations and emergency workstations, the method of using client software as well as the operation interfaces are the same. For convenience, this chapter cites GUI operations on ordinary workstations as an example.

If the interval between an MML command is sent to the BAM to receiving its response exceeds the value, the client regards that the command execution fails. For this parameter, the unit is second. The value range is 20600. The default value is 180. 2) Click OK.

2.2.6 Save Input Commands


During daily maintenance, you have to frequently query the status of the equipment and the network, such as the board status, the CPU usage, the signaling link status, and the gateway registration status. If you have to enter MML commands one by one to finish the maintenance task, the working efficiency is very low. To promote the working efficiency, the MSOFTX3000 LMT offers the function of saving the entered MML command (including the script), that is, you can save all or part of the entered MML command in text format in the hard disk of the workstation. If carrying out the same or similar operations later, invoke the file by executing the MML command in batch or editing the file by using Notepad.

4.2.3 Saving Trace Messages


If the fault cause cannot be found on site according to trace messages, you need to save them for further analysis. When creating a trace task, if you select Auto Save to File (See section 4.2.1 Creating a Trace Task), all trace messages will be auto saved to the path D:HW LMT\client\output\main\MSOFTX3000\MSC9880 MSOFTX3000V100R003CxxBxxx\trace. During debugging, you can save one message or one segment of a message. Table 4-4 shows the operation steps. Table 4-4 Saving trace messages Step Action In the trace result pane, right-click the message you want to save. From the shortcut menu displayed, choose Save Selected Messages. 1

Note: If you choose Save All Messages, all trace messages in the pane will be saved.
On the dialog box displayed, specify the path and name of the file to be saved. The message saving is now complete.

You can save trace messages to a file in protocol text, text, CSV, or trace message file format. By default, a trace message file (that is, a tmf file) is saved. To read a file in this format, you must use the trace viewer. When you need to send a file containing trace messages to experts to find faults, the experts cannot open the file if they do not have the trace viewer installed. In this case, you can use the Save as function of the tool to save a tmf file in protocol text, text, CSV, or trace message file format. Take saving a tmf file as a text file for example. Table 4-5 shows the operation steps. Table 4-5 Saving a tmf file as a text file Step 1 Action Start the trace viewer and open the trace file in tmf format. In the trace result pane, right-click a message or a segment of a message. From the shortcut menu displayed, choose Save Selected Messages. 2

Note: If you choose Save All Messages, all trace messages in the pane will be saved.
On the dialog box displayed, select .txt as the file type. Specify the path and name of the file you want to save. Click the Save button. The trace message is now saved to a txt file.

4.2.4 Clearing Trace Messages


After a trace task is created, the BAM continuously sends trace messages to the trace result pane. If a large amount of data is accumulated, it is difficult to search for a record. Therefore, you need to clear trace messages according to the steps shown in Table 4-6. Table 4-6 Clearing trace messages Step 1 Action In the trace result pane, right-click and choose Clear Messages from the shortcut menu displayed. On the Confirmation dialog box displayed, click Yes to clear all messages displayed in the trace result pane. 2

Note:
If you have chosen Auto Save to File when creating the trace task, the preceding operations only clear trace messages displayed in the trace result pane, not the messages saved to a file.

4.2.5 Removing a Trace Task


A running trace task uses many system resources. When you no longer need a trace task, remove it immediately according to the steps shown in Table 4-7. Table 4-7 Removing a trace task Step 1 2 3 Action Find the trace task you want to remove from the MSOFTX3000 navigation tree. Directly close the trace result pane of the trace task. On the Confirmation dialog box displayed, click Yes to remove the task after it is saved. If you click No, the task will be directly removed.

4.2.6 Reviewing Trace Results


After a trace task is completed, you can use the trace viewer to offline review trace message files saved to a local computer during online trace. Table 4-8 shows the operation steps.

Chapter 5 Using LMT Alarm Console


5.1 About This Chapter
As the main reference for maintenance, alarms indicate faults that occur during equipment operation. You need to confirm the alarms and solve the problems. The alarm management system monitors the equipment and sends the abnormal information to the LMT once it finds a fault. Then the alarm box generates a visual and audio alarm to notify you of the fault. Alarms of the MSOFTX3000 can be managed in one of the following ways:
z z

Using GUI: It is convenient for operations. This chapter is based on this mode. Using MML: It requires you to be very familiar with the commands related to alarm management and it is also very convenient.

5.2 Basic Concepts


5.2.1 Alarm ID
It identifies an alarm uniquely.

5.2.2 Alarm Serial No.


It is an integral number allocated to each alarm by the BAM according to the sequence by which the alarms are generated.

Note: The serial No. of a cleared alarm is the same as that of its corresponding fault alarm.

5.2.3 Alarm Type


I. Classification of Alarms
There are two types of alarms, fault alarm and event alarm.

II. Fault Alarm


A fault alarm is generated due to failure of hardware or important functions, and it must be cleared. Usually, fault alarms are more severe than event alarms.

Huawei Technologies Proprietary 5-1

Operation Manual GUI Guide HUAWEI MSOFTX3000 Mobile SoftSwitch Center

Chapter 5 Using LMT Alarm Console

III. Event Alarm


An event alarm is generated to indicate an event in the MSOFTX3000. It is an accidental event and a momentary state during the operation of the MSOFTX3000. Event alarms do not need clearing.

5.2.4 Alarm Severity


There are four levels of alarms, classified by severity. Each identifies a different level of impact on service.
z z z z

Critical alarms Major alarms Minor alarms Warning alarms

The descriptions of different alarm severities and handling modes are listed in Table 5-1. Table 5-1 Descriptions of alarm severities and handling modes Alarm Severity Description It refers to a fault alarm or an event alarm that has a global influence and will disable the host, such as the WSMU fault and WCKI fault. It refers to a fault alarm or an event alarm that happens to boards or circuits, such as the MTP link fault. It refers to a fault alarm or an event alarm that shows whether a board or circuit is working well, such as the fault that the MSC resets the BSC. It refers to a fault alarm or an event alarm that prompts an event, such as blocking of the BSC circuit. Handling mode

Critical alarm

It must be processed right away. Otherwise, the system will break down.

Major alarm

It must be processed quickly. Otherwise, some important functions will be unavailable.

Minor alarm

Find out the reason and eliminate the hidden trouble as soon as possible.

Warning alarm

Get knowledge of the running state of the system and handle the problems accordingly.

5.2.5 Alarm Category by Network Management Standards


There are 10 categories of alarm systems according to the network management standards:
