712)
Huanglisheng-2013-5-8
About this document: Include 5 parts.

Part 1: Activating the OMCR Server; (Most of time OMCR team already help us to
activate, if not, then you can do it as guideline, otherwise we can pass part 1)
Part 2: Login Sigtrace Tools and Finish Basic Setting;
Part 3: Start Signaling Trace;
Part 4: Analyze Signaling
Part 5: GSM Basic Signaling Flow.

Part 1: Activating the OMCR server.


(1).Start->Run->cmd.

(2).Telnet BSC IP which you want to record signaling trace, so you need to know the BSC IP .

(3).User name gomcr , Passwordgomcr123

Use pwd to show you the path, and then use cd to login the server
pwd
cd zxgomcr/ums-svr/tools/zxgomcr-sigtrace/server
./server.sh (means activate one time only, it will be deactivate when you logout)
nohup ./server.sh & (means once you activate it will be activated forever until you deactivate it)
ps ef|grep sig (check the server activate or not ,if showing sigtrc_s.jar, means activated)

Part 4: Analyze signaling
(Most of time we use RMA or MA10 to analysis the signaling)
(1).RMA.V2.20.010---Product of ZTE, you can filter the signaling which you want to check(We
have document about how to use this tools, here just introduce to you, you can apply the license
from UniPOS@zte.com.cn)

(2).MA10--- Produce by another company, also a good tool to analysis the signaling.
(You can filter the signaling which you want to check ,we also have document about how to use
this tools, here just introduce to you)
