USM displays data from other CA products if those products are installed, running, and returning data. These products include:
  • CA Spectrum
  • CA ADA
  • CA NFA
The following sections describe data as it appears in USM.
 
 
CA Spectrum Data in USM
USM displays information about symptomatic and root cause devices that are identified by CA Spectrum when CA Spectrum is installed, running, and logging alarms. USM displays root cause devices and alarms in the same way as other CA UIM alarms. A specific icon (Symptomatic Devices Alarms Icon) indicates symptomatic devices and alarms.
USM 
Tree
 view icons reflect the condition of the group or device:
  • The group status icon reflects the most severe status of any device in the group. If all devices in a group are symptomatic, the group status icon is symptomatic too.
  • The device icon reflects the most severe status of an alarm for a root cause device or display a symptomatic icon (Symptomatic Device Alarm Icon) for a symptomatic device.
 CA Spectrum data is only visible to users with access to CA Spectrum origins.
The USM 
Alarm view
 displays information about all alarms reported in USM, whether or not the devices are part of a group. This view is useful for identifying alarms that are generated for devices that are not members of a defined group and for identifying root cause alarms.
  • Click the 
    alarm clock 
    icon (Alarm Clock Icon) to view all alarms in the 
    Alarm 
    view.
    The upper pane displays the alarm graph for all alarms. The lower pane lists the alarms, including root cause alarms.
  • Click function icons for an alarm or the

    Alarm 
    view, including a table of symptomatic alarms under the
     Symptoms 
    tab.
     The 
    Alarms
     tab for a device displays symptomatic alarms in the alarms list. The 
    Alarms
     tab for a group or device interface do 
    not
     display symptomatic alarms in the alarms list. An alarm search also does 
    not

 option from the 
Actions 
menu, the alarm is not acknowledged.
An acknowledged alarm disappears from the list view but is visible in the 
Show Historical 
view under the 
Actions
 menu.
