Viewing the Top Ten Historical Alarms Graph


The top ten graph in the Alarms panel shows the historical alarm count for the ten network elements with the most alarms over the past month.

In many network situations, a misconfigured node or faulty hardware on a particular node may skew the network alarms count. This procedure allows you to quickly identify the culprit network element(s) and to see the details of the alarms raised.


The examples in this section show a high number of alarms. This is for illustration purposes only.

  1. In the Alarms panel on the proNX Service Manager Dashboard summary page, click the Top Ten tab.

    A bar graph showing the number of alarms for the top ten network elements is displayed.

    To change the scale of this graph, see Changing the scale in line and bar graphs.


    This graph is updated periodically based on a configurable setting (see Changing the proNX Service Manager Dashboard Settings), or on a browser refresh. The default update period is 30 minutes.

  2. Click on a severity to see the breakdown of alarms for that NE by AID (access identifier). An access identifier uniquely identifies a component or object.

    A table pops up showing the alarms at that severity for that NE, sorted from the AID with the most alarms to the AID with the least alarms.

  3. To view the actual alarms at that severity for a particular AID, click on the Count for that AID.

    The historical alarms table appears, filtered for the network element, severity, and AID that you selected.

    For information on viewing and working with the historical alarms table, see Viewing the Historical Alarms Table.
