Chapter 1 Introduction to GUI

1.1 Composition of GUI


The GUI mentioned throughout this manual refers to the graphic user interface
provided by BAM server software, client software, and emergency workstation
software.
The SoftX3000 Operation and Maintenance System works in client/server architecture.
The BAM server is the server side, which manages and maintains the SoftX3000. The
BAM server receives the maintenance and operation commands from a local or remote
end, sends them to a specific host or terminal, and waits to process the response
messages. The BAM server also stores and transfers the alarm and performance
measurement data, and provides multisided and remote maintenance to the SoftX3000.
BAM works as a database, and also a communication channel between the host and
the maintenance terminals.
The client software is installed on maintenance terminals. In addition, when you install
the BAM server software and emergency workstation software, the client software is
also installed.
The emergency workstation is the backup of the BAM server. It will function when the
BAM server fails.
The operations on the BAM server, maintenance terminals (also known as ordinary
workstation), and emergency workstation are the same. This chapter will elaborate on
the operations on maintenance terminals.

I. Operator

Each operator must have a valid account to log in the SoftX3000 client. The system has
two default accountsSoftX300 and Guest. The SoftX3000 account has the highest
authorities, and the Guest account has the lowest authorities. You can add new
operator accounts according to the requirements. To ensure security to the system,
each account must have an complicated enough password.

Note:
The system administrator accounts, including the SoftX3000 account, are configured when you install
the BAM software.

II. Operator Domain and Operator Group

You can use the following three commands to set operator domain and operator group:

Command Usage
ADD DOMAIN Define the domain in which the operator has certain level of authorities
Define the level of authorities in the operator domain, for instance, managing
ADD DOMAUTH
the telephone number in a certain range.

Command Usage
ADD OPGRP Define the available operator group of the operator.

III. Workstation

A workstation is the computer that you log in to operate on. The BAM is also a
workstation. You can only operate on an authorized workstation to maintain the
SoftX3000. The intersection of the authorities of the workstation and the current login
account is the actual authority you have.

IV. Command Group

You can also assign authorities to a workstation by command groups. This mode
increases the efficiency of assigning authorities. You don't have to assign the
authorities of commands one by one.
The system has already defined some command groups:
z Subscriber management
z Ticket query
z GUEST
z SYS
You can modify and use all command groups except SYS. There are some empty
command groups for you to customize.

Chapter 3 Using Alarm Management System

3.1 Overview of Alarm Management System


The alarm management system helps you detect, isolate, and fix the faults and errors
found in the SoftX3000.
You can observe and monitor the SoftX3000 by reading the alarms reported from the
host. When a fault occurs in the SoftX3000, which might affect the service, the related
module will generate an alarm, and the alarm management module in the BAM will
display the content of the alarm. It can be a data transmission error, an operation fault,
or an overload operation. You can then locate and remove the fault according to the
alarm reported by the BAM.
The alarm management system provides the following functions and features:
z Querying fault alarms and event alarms in real time
z Browsing fault alarms, recovery alarms, event alarms, and history alarms
z Querying alarms by search conditions
z Deleting history alarms
z Filtering alarms
z Masking alarms
z Querying alarm details by alarm number
z Configuring alarm box
z Querying alarm statistics by alarm box type and network management system
z Setting and querying alarm box masking level
z Setting colors for alarms of different levels
When you query alarms using the alarm management system, you have to know the
alarm type and alarm level first.

3.2 Classification of Alarms


3.2.1 Classifying Alarms by Type

I. Overview of Alarm Types

The alarms can be classified into three types:


z Fault alarm
z Event alarm
z Recovery alarm

3-1
Operation ManualGUI Guide
U-SYS SoftX3000 SoftSwitch System Chapter 3 Using Alarm Management System

II. Fault Alarm

A fault alarm corresponds to a fault. It can be a circuit fault, signaling unreachable, link
interruption, or board failure. It is displayed as a fault in the alarm report. When a fault is
recovered, a recovery alarm will be generated accordingly.

III. Event Alarm

An event alarm describes an occasional and instant event during system operation. It
has no corresponding recovery alarm. Some event alarms recur regularly. It can be a
call connection or board loading.

IV. Recovery Alarm

Each recovery alarm has a corresponding fault alarm. It can be regarded as a part of
the fault alarm.

3.2.2 Classifying Alarms by Level

I. Overview of Alarm Levels

There are four levels of alarms, classified by severity. Each identifies a different level of
impact on service.
z Critical
z Major
z Minor
z Warning

II. Critical Alarm

Critical alarms have already affected the quality of service, and require immediate
actions even in non-duty hours. The equipment and network resource might be
completely unavailable.

III. Major Alarm

Major alarms have already affected the quality of service, and require immediate
actions. The quality of service and the service provisioning capability of the equipment
are degraded, and must be restored during your duty hours.

IV. Minor Alarm

Minor alarms have not affected the quality of service, but require treatment in proper
time or further observation to prevent graver faults and errors.

V. Warning Alarm

Warning alarms indicate potential errors that might affect the service.

Performance measurement is also known as payload measurement or traffic
measurement.
It refers to various measuring activities carried out on the softswitch and the
communication networks to obtain the following measurement data:
z Running status
z Signaling information
z User information
z System resources
It provides reliable data reference for the following purposes:
z Operation management
z Troubleshooting of equipment
z Network monitoring
z Network maintenance
z Network planning
z Network designing

4.2 Generic Operations


4.2.1 Workflow of Performance Measurement

You can implement performance measurement by applying tasks. Figure 4-1 lists the
procedure of performance measurement. The boxes in broken lines are optional steps.

z Creating a performance measurement task
z Modifying a performance measurement task
z Querying the details of a performance measurement task
z Query, save, and print performance measurement results
z Delete a performance measurement task
The first task is the most important one. All the rest are based on the created task.

4.2.2 Logging in to the Performance Management System

You can implement various performance measurement operations in either Graphical


User Interface (GUI) or by Man Machine Language (MML).

Operation ManualGUI Guide
U-SYS SoftX3000 SoftSwitch System Chapter 4 Using Performance Management System

Figure 4-3 Interface for MML command input

The two modes have the same results.


The GUI mode is more obvious, and easy to understand and follow. This chapter will
focus on operations in GUI mode only.

4.3 Cautions and Notes


4.3.1 Maximum Number of Tasks

Each performance measurement task occupies some system resources. The cases
that too many tasks are carried out simultaneously or too frequently will lead to
resource over-consumption, so a maximum of 128 tasks can be created.

4.3.2 User Authority

The performance measurement system divides user authorities into three levels:
service query, service setting and service management. Refer to Table 4-1for the
specific authorities of each level.

4.3.3 Measurement entities

For any of extremum measurement entities of a measurement object, for example,


measurement of CPU occupation rate, it cannot be created in multiple measurement
tasks; otherwise, the measurement result will be inaccurate.

4.3.4 BAM time

The result output of a measurement task is closely related to the time. If the BAM time is
modified, it is possible that the result exported within the next measurement period will
be incorrect.

6.2 Using BAM Server Gateway Tool


The BAM server gateway tool is an attached software of the BAM. It can only be used
on the BAM for connecting serial port device with the BAM.
The tool is an expansion of the communication layer of the BAM. It converts message
between TCP/IP and serial port protocol. It establishes connection with the BAM
through TCP/IP. It establishes connection with other serial port devices through serial
port protocol. It transparently transfers data between the BAM and serial port device.
For the BAM, command from any serial port device is considered as coming from an IP
address. All data sent by the BAM go to an IP address no matter the data might finally
stay on a serial port device such as HyperTerminal and alarm box.
The relationship between each serial port protocol and TCP/IP set up by the BAM
server gateway tool is called a connection. The tool supports multiple connection cases.
Each connection case is monitored by a conversion thread. You can set up or close a
connection case at any time.

6.2.1 Starting BAM Server Gateway Tool

Click [Start/Programs/U-SYS SoftX3000 Operation and Maintenance Center/U-SYS


SoftX3000 Server Gateway Tool] on the BAM. Figure 6-3 shows the main window.

Figure 6-3 Startup window of the BAM server gateway tool

If some connections are established during the last run of the system, the system
automatically records the connection configuration information to the file registry (Path:

6-6
tion ManualGUI Guide
S SoftX3000 SoftSwitch System Chapter 6 Using GUI on BAM

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ huawei\SoftX3000\convert). If automatic


reconnection is enabled for some connections, the system, during system restart,
automatically creates connections according to information saved in the file registry.
The connections are configured according to the information saved after the successful
creation last time. The automatic reconnection window is as shown in Figure 6-4.

Figure 6-4 Successful reconnection window of the BAM server gateway tool

6.2.2 Creating Connection

I. Cautions in Creating Connection

During the use of the gateway tool, you might need to use some hardware devices. The
configuration of the hardware devices must be correct.The IP address of the BAM must
be correct. Otherwise, the system cannot check itself but attempts to reconnect
repeatedly.Pay attention to the use of compressed mode. Decompression and
compression operations need to be completed.Check whether the alarm console of the
BAM is running normally when using the alarm box.If you starts two gateway tool
program cases, the latter case pops up. That is, the system only reserves one
case.Operation Procedure
You can create a connection according to the following steps:

1) Click [Operation/Create connection] or on the toolbar and a dialog box pops


up, as shown in Figure 6-5.

6-7
tion ManualGUI Guide
S SoftX3000 SoftSwitch System Chapter 6 Using GUI on BAM

gateway tool

Meanings of the fields are as follows:Serial port: to select the serial port number used
by the current conversion.
z BAM IP address: to select the address of the BAM to be connected. If the gateway
tool runs on the BAM, the address can be replaced by 127.0.0.1.
z Client application type: to select type of serial port device. For example, GUI
maintenance class and alarm box class.
z Serial port configuration: to configure serial port. By default, the baud rate is 9600
bit/s, the data bit is 8, the parity is None, and the stop bit is 1.
z Compress: to set whether to use the compressed mode for information
transmission. By default, it is not to use the compressed mode.
z Auto reconnect: It means whether to automatically reconnect the existing
connections after the gateway tool is restarted.
z Select Use modem dial by hand if modem is needed for connection. Enter
telephone number in Modem configuration.
2) After setting the data of the above fields according to your requirement, click
<Create> and the system creates a conversion connection according to your

6.3 Using Workstation Gateway Tool


The workstation gateway tool is an attached software of the U-SYS SoftX3000
Operation and Maintenance Center. It is an expansion of the communication layer of
the workstation. It converts message between TCP/IP and serial port protocol. It
establishes connection with the workstation through TCP/IP. It establishes connection
with other serial port device through serial port protocol. It transparently transfers data
between the workstation and serial port device. For the workstation, command from
any serial port device is considered as coming from an IP address. All data sent by the
workstation go to an IP address no matter the data might stay on a serial port device
such as HyperTerminal and alarm box.
The relationship between each serial port protocol and TCP/IP set up by the
workstation gateway tool is called a connection. The tool supports multiple connection
cases. Each connection case is monitored by a conversion thread. Each connection
case can be set up and closed at any time.
The workstation gateway tool is used for connecting workstation with serial port devices.
It can be run on the BAM or the LAN where the BAM is located. It can even be run on
any computer which communicates with the BAM through TCP/IP on the WAN. The
serial port of the computer is used to provide services for client workstation.

ExTableBrowse is a tool which helps you query the data configured in the host without
having to install the database. However, you cannot modify the host data.

A.2.1 Classifying Data on Host

The data in the host are classified into seven data groups, each of which contains data
tables of a certain module. You can query the data more quickly if you know which
group contains the data you wanted before querying. The definition of the data groups
is as follows:
z SYS stores the data on the SMUI.
z FSPC stores the data on the FCCU and the FCSU.
z CDB stores the data on the CDBI, such as call location, gateway resource
management and outgoing trunk selection.
z BSG stores the data on the BSGI. BSGI is used to process the IP packets after the
IFMI level-1 dispatch. It processes such protocols as UDP, SCTP, M2UA, M3UA,
V5UA, IUA, MGCP and H.248 and performs level-2 dispatch of such messages to
the FCCU or FCSU for transaction layer or service layer processing.
z MRC stores the data on the MRCA which is related to collecting and generating
DTMF signals, playing and recording audio clips and holding multiparty
conferences.
z MSG stores the data on the MSGI, which is related to UDP, TCP, H.323 (H.323
RAS, H.323 CALL Signaling) and SIP.
z IFM stores the data used to forward IP packets, and the data related to processing
the message of the media access control (MAC) and distributing the IP packets.
