I am interested in using NPM or Orion SAM to monitor an Alcatel 5620SAM module. I want to monitor on all the events and alarms the Alcatel device sees and am unsure how to proceed. Does anyone have experience with monitoring Alcatel/Lucent devices and setting up meangful monitors?
How did you go with this one?
I believe the SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor has a JMS event stream and SOAP XML API. This should work for interfacing with the 5620 SAM.
From my experience Alcatel is not happy with that kind of interworking.
The only interworking is with northbound interface to (OSS/BSS) that support SOAP or SNMP TRAPS NOT parallel interworking from your NEs (SR /ESS/DSLM/PON) to solarwinds NPM.
They had some work with infovista tivoli and HP + OSS like AMDOCS .
but those tools are for "Big Telcos"
I sure like to know if you could got someone form alcatel to move a finger 🙂
