In attachment a Perl tool that can report on the:
- nas_transaction_log (detailed log)
- nas_transaction_summary (1 line per alarm)
tables and produce reports in html or csv format.
- Sample detail report (html format)
- sample overview report:
- sample open alarm report:
A doc file is in the attached zip file.
Quick start (without customizing nimsoft_generic.dat):
- if Perl is installed copy nimsoft_alarm_reporter.pl, nimsoft_generic.pm and nimsoft_generic.dat to a local directory
- if perl is not installed copy nimsoft_alarm_reporter.exe and nimsoft_generic.dat to a local directory
(you are not required to customize the nimsoft_generic.dat file, but than you need to use the -r, -u and -p options)
- execute: perl nimsoft_alarm_reporter.pl -r"sql_servername" -u"sa" -p"sql_psw" -b"1"
Quick start (with customizing nimsoft_generic.dat)
- copy the files in a directory
- edit the file: nimsoft_generic.dat and change all settings/variables
- the passwords in this file must be encrypted by: nimsoft_crypt.exe your_password
(the output will be the encrypted password that you copy in nimsoft_generic.dat)
- execute: nimsoft_alarm_reporter -b"1"
(this will generate a report of all detail alarms of the last hour in c:\temp)
Any comment or idea is very welcome.
- filter on level
- filter on acknowledged_by
- filter on assigned_by and assigned_to
- use sql trusted connection to connect to mssql
- can also report on nas_transaction_summary table, this table creates only 1 record for an alarm, even if it's generated every 5 minutes.
- can run on Windows with MSSQL or Mysql
- can run on Linux with Mysql/Mariadb
- can run on a standalone (no perl or sql client) Linux and Windows with the compiled version
- documented how to create your own Perl environment to run this tool
