Chapter 2 Monitoring the System



This section describes alarms, which indicate problems on the Cisco ICS 7750 or on systems with which it is communicating.

Alarms are associated with the following:

Events—Physicalproblems, such as system overheating or loss of power, detected by the SAP card and reported to the ICS System Manager software. Events are associated with the following system components:



Power supply modules

Traps—Problems,such as a trunk outage, that are detected by MRP cards and transmitted in the form of a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) message.

Note For more information about SNMP messages, see“SNMP Basics” on page 2-10.To find out how to identify and solve system problems, seeChapter 4, “System Troubleshooting Guidelines,” andAppendix A, “Error Message Summary.”

Alarm Notification

The system issues notifications of alarms in any of the following ways:

ICS System Manager is notified of an event and takes the appropriate action; for example, it changes the state of one or more LEDs on the system and generates an error message, which you then see.

An SNMP agent generates a trap that is collected by ICS ICS System Manager or another SNMP management application, which processes the trap and takes the appropriate action.

You have an open communications session with the Cisco ICS 7750 and retrieve log messages associated with any alarms.
