Viewing Service-Level Alarms in Network Activate


The Junos Space Network Application Platform has integrated a third party tool, OpenNMS, to provide network monitoring capabilities. The OpenNMS network management application platform provides solutions for enterprises and carriers. OpenNMS is installed as part of Platform, which exposes some of OpenNMS’ functionality through the Network Monitoring workspace. The default performance management configuration of OpenNMS for Space supports generic counters, CPU, memory, temperature, and Mobility counters. For information on this default configuration, see the subset of the OpenNMS documentation included in this Junos Space Network Application Platform User Guide.


Although additional OpenNMS functionality can be accessed by customizing its XML files, editing these files can affect the functionality of the Network Monitoring workspace. Juniper Networks does not support changes to OpenNMS.

To access the OpenNMS tool, in Network Activate task pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage Services.

  1. When the Manage Services page appears, select the entry for the service you want to look at.
  2. Right-click or open the Actions menu.
  3. Select View Service Alarms.
  4. From the actions list, select View Service Alarms.

    The OpenNMS Network Monitoring window appears.

    From this window you can view the alarms associated with the service and search for specific alarms.


    The events listed here are based on the status of the Decouple Service Status From Port Status check box in the Point-to-Point and the Layer 3 Virtual Private Network service definition window.
