Monitoring and alerting manual

A Table module is ideal for monitoring a lot of objects/parameters at the same time, when only the current values matter the most, as the Table module cannot show history. Sophisticated filtering and sorting features allow for creation of any custom-built design with just the objects, parameters, and values you need.


Tables are very powerful if used to the full potential. Here are a couple of examples how you may create different monitoring modules with their help.

Monitoring Vendors for low ACD:
  • filter Object IDs by c for Contractors
  • filter object name for the Vendors you need to monitor (say, !TOTAL will exclude a "TOTAL SYSTEM STATISTICS" "vendor")
  • set filter >0 for Out Calls (you only need to monitor active vendors)
  • sort by Out ACD with lowest values on top
5gVision Monitoring and alerting, Table overview - add right-click menu with sum, avg When several rows are selected in a table (by dragging a mouse), and a right-click menu invoked over a column with numbers, an additional menu item will show up with the count of selected rows, sum of selected values, and their average.

Monitoring traffic for low ASR to all Areas from a particular Customer:
  • filter Object IDs by c::a for Customer->Areas
  • filter object name like this: CustomerA::Area pattern
  • click on the blue plus to the left of the Customer name to open all child Areas under it, and
  • sort by In ASR with the lowest values on top

Color highlights in tables are configured in Color levels.

As it was mentioned before, Tables are mostly meant for current statistics. However, you have some flixibility in choosing the Interval for which the data is shown. The Interval strip in Tables consists of:
  • ThisH - current hour statistics (incomplete).
  • PrevH - previous hour statistics.
  • 2h - full previous hour plus an incomplete current hour statistics.
  • 3h - full previous 2 hours plus an incomplete current hour statistics.
You can do Horizontal scroll in tables using several methods including shift-scrolling.

Combinations strip

There are quite a lot of different Object combinations in 5gVision. Sometimes, looking at too many combination types in a table may be confusing and will make it harder to find the information you are looking for. The Combinations strip allows you to choose which combinations will appear on screen when you open parent objects by clicking on a plus sign next to them.

For instance, if you open a c-type object, a Customer, you could see four types of other objects under it: DST Areas (a), SRC Areas (b), Vendors (c), or Disconnect codes (r). If you are only interested in DST Areas at this time, you may easily hide combinations of cc, bc and cr via the Combinations strip. 5gVision Monitoring and alerting, Table comb strip
