    Fault Severity

    Each fault point is associated with one of the following default severity types.

    Table 1: Fault Severity

    Severity

    Description

    Critical

    A failure that is likely causing serious loss or interruption of traffic.

    Major

    A failure that could potentially lead to loss or interruption of traffic.

    Minor

    A failure that does not significantly affect traffic.

    Not alarmed

    A fault that results in a standing condition, not an alarm.

    Not reported

    A minor, major, or critical alarm not reported, because it is being masked by another alarm.

    Faults with NR severity always behave as non-alarmed conditions. Notifications for raise and clear events are never generated for these faults, and active occurrences can be discovered only when the active conditions list is polled.
