Table 23: Description of Alarm Names

Alarm Name

Description

SYS_CONFIG_CHANGE

Indicates the configuration has changed.

SYS_AUTHENTICATION

Indicates a system authentication failure.

GPS_ANTENNA_SHORT

Indicates an electrical short in the link to the GPS antenna.

GPS_ANTENNA_OPEN

Indicates an electrical open in the link to the GPS antenna.

GPS_NO_USABLE_SATELLITE

Indicates the GPS antenna is not receiving a signal from any satellite.

GPS_LEAP_SECOND_PENDING

Provides a warning of an impending leap second change.

TIMING_OSC_DAC_RANGE

Indicates that the frequency of the oscillator is out of the tuning range.

GPS_RECEIVER_INACTIVE

The GPS receiver is not active.

TIMING_OSC_DAC_RANGE

The frequency of the oscillator is outside of the tuning range.

TIMING_NON_STRATUM_ONE

The source of the timing loop is not Stratum 1 traceable.

OVEN_TEMP_RANGE_HIGH

Indicates that the secondary oscillator oven temperature is greater than the set point temperature. This is only a status indicator as there is no impact on the oscillator primary oven control or its stability. We recommend that the severity be set to NONE.

OVEN_TEMP_RANGE_LOW

Indicates that the secondary oscillator oven temperature is less than the set point temperature. This is only a status indicator as there is no impact on the oscillator primary oven control or its stability. We recommend that the severity be set to NONE.

SYS_DIAG_FAILURE

Indicates that there is a system failure reported by the system diagnostic utility.

PTP_SERVER_UNREACHABLE

Indicates that the reference source for Timing Client has changed.

FREQ_REF_QUALITY_CHANGE

Indicates that the stratum level of the reference source for the Timing Client has changed.

FREQ_ACQUIRING

Indicates that the system tries to adjust the local oscillator based on the input source such as GPS, T1, E1, and PTP. If the adjustments are completed, then the system state is changed from acquiring state to locked state.

TIMEPROBE_DISABLE

Indicates that the time probe agent is disabled or accidentally turned off.

LINK_DOWN

Indicates that the Ethernet ports is down.

LINK_UP

Indicates that the Ethernet ports is up.
