Configuring PSM to E-mail NE Alarms

 

The PSM can be configured to automatically e-mail NE alarm notifications to specified e-mail addresses. The severity of alarms for which e-mails are sent is configurable, and e-mails are sent for RAISE, CLEAR, and ACKNOWLEDGED alarm state changes.

Alarm/e-mail configuration is done by specifying the values of the following properties in the /var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file:

  1. On the workstation where the PSM server is installed, open the/var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file. Note

    The /var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file contains many settings that affect the behavior of the PSM server. Only those attributes explicitly described in this guide should be changed. Changing any other attributes may have unintended consequences, and must only be performed under the guidance of Juniper Networks Support.

  2. Specify the values for the properties in the file as desired.
  3. Save and close the /var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file.
  4. Track changes to the /var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file with Git by committing this update to the Git repository.

    For example:

    This update can now be seen in the Git log. For more information on Git, see Using Git to Track override-common.properties.

  5. To activate changes made to the override-common.properties file, restart the PSM server.
    Note

    Existing alarms that have already been processed by PSM for discovered NEs are not sent to the e-mail server. Only new alarms are sent.

    The restart command successfully completes when the 'Ems-' processes all change to the running state. Type <ctrl> c to exit the Linux watch command window.
