Fault Reporting

 

Fault reporting is managed by setting the fault severity as follows:

  • critical/major/minor: Active faults with critical, major or minor severity are reported with an autonomous alarm notification when the fault becomes active. When the fault is no longer active, a condition clear alarm is generated. All active faults, alarmed or non-alarmed, can be polled by retrieving a list of active conditions (show conditions). All active faults with critical, major or minor severity alarm notifications can be polled by retrieving a list of active alarms (show alarms).

  • not-alarmed: No notifications are generated when faults become active or are cleared, but the faults that are active can be polled by retrieving a list of active conditions (show conditions).

Additionally, a fault can be enabled or disabled. When a fault is disabled, the fault is not alarmed and does not appear in the output of the show alarms or show conditions command. By default, all faults are enabled.
