Configuring the SNMP Alerts

When you install the IMS AAA Server software using the pkgadd command, you are prompted with a number of questions related to SNMP management. These questions have been clearly highlighted in the example output shown in Example Output of pkgadd Command for IMS AAA Server Package-New Installation. These questions must be answered properly in order for the IMS AAA Server to send alerts to the SNMP NMS.

NOTE:

When you manually start the SNMP agent and the server, we recommend you start the SNMP agent first, and then start the server. This ensures the IMS AAA Server Startup and Diameter Peer Connection Up alerts are captured by SNMP the agent. To manually stop the server and the SNMP agent, stop the server first, and then stop the SNMP agent. This ensures the IMS AAA Server Shutdown and Diameter Peer Connection Down alerts are guaranteed are captured by the SNMP agent. For more information please see Configuring the SNMP Alerts.

The first time you start the IMS AAA Server, SNMP alerts are not generated until you configure the Server Management > Alerts and Apply the changes to the IMS AAA Server.


The following SNMP alerts are generated by the IMS AAA Server:

NOTE: References in Table 39 refer to RFC 3588 dated September 2003.

Alert
Meaning

Diameter base protocol error

One of the Diameter protocol errors listed in RFC 3588 section 7.1.3 has occured (Result-Code=3xxx).

Diameter transient failure

One of the Diameter Transient Failures listed in RFC 3588 section 7.1.4 has occured (Result-Code=4xxx).

Diameter permanent failure

One of the Diameter Permanent Failures listed in RFC 3588 section 7.1.5 has occured (Result-Code=5xxx).

Diameter Peer connection down

A Diameter peer connection has been deemed Down. Per RFC 3588 section 5.6, this occurs when the peer state has changed from Open another state.

Diameter Peer connection up

A Diameter peer connection has been deemed Up. Per RFC 3588 section 5.6, this occurs when the peer state has changed to I-Open or R-Open.

IMS AAA Server startup

The IMS AAA Server process started successfully.

IMS AAA Server shutdown

The IMS AAA Server process stopped successfully.

IMS AAA Server unauthorized administration requests

HTTP/HTTPs requests sent to the IMS AAA Server were denied because the user does not have proper permission to access the URL.

IMS AAA Server internal errors

A IMS AAA Server implementation dependent error occured.

IMS AAA Server resource failure

A IMS AAA Server implementation dependent resource failure occured.

This is most likely due to an error reported by HSS or a communication error with the HSS.

IMS AAA Server log file failure

Operation on a IMS AAA Server log file such as opening/reading/writing failed.

This is most likely due to the server disk being out of space.


To configure the SNMP alerts generated by the IMS AAA Server:

  1. Select Server Management > Alerts.

The dialog in Figure 115 opens.


Figure 115: SNMP Alerts

To enable an alert, select the associated checkbox. Dilute an alert by entering the dilution value in the associated field. If there is no field for entering the dilution value, the alert cannot be diluted.
