Adding a new alarm

Introduction

Adding new alarms

To add a new alarm:

  1. Add a new section into the appropriate config.xml file in sipXsupervisor/etc/, with a new alarm id.
  2. Add the description and resolution strings in the appropriate *-strings.xml file in sipXsupervisor/meta/alarms/. Normally there is no need to create new files; however if adding an optional package it might be desirable to capture the alarms in separate files.

Generating alarms

Interfaces are provided for Java and C++ code to call to generate alarms. There are only two parameters: the unique internal ID and the parameter string (or list of strings).
