Where is the Spectrum alarm severity file stored for conditional (varbind-based) alarms?

Environment

Release: Any
Component:

Resolution

Severity maps live under $SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor/<vendor>/SeverityMaps/<map file name>

Note that the vendor depends on what vendor (if any) you specify in the severity map action. If you leave it out, it will default to the directory where the event disp file lives, then you also will need the severity map dir there. The map name is the name of the map you specify in the action.

E.g, assuming they work on the EventDisp in $SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor/CUSTOMER_DEFS:

0xffff0000 E 50 A { v 1 mysevmap }, 0xffff0000

Uses map named mysevmap, in the $SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor/CUSTOMER_DEFS/SeverityMaps directory


0xffff0001 E 50 A { v 1 CA.sevmap1 }, 0xffff0001

Uses sevmap1, from the CA vendor. So the map in this case would be:

$SPECROOT/SS/CsVendor/CA/SeverityMaps/sevmap1
