how to use nimalarm from bash script

Im trying to use nimalarm from a bash script, in the docs here: The NimAlarm Utility - CA Unified Infrastructure Management - 8.1 - CA Technologies Documentation  it says you have to us -t, -n, -m for UMP...

Note: The -t, -n, and -m options are required for UMP. If these options are not used, the alarm will not appear in USM.

Additionally, you must set the variable ${hostname} using the -a option:

nimalarm -t 2.2.3.1 -n Response -m 2.2.3.1:1 -V as#network.dhcp_responce.dhcp_srv_didnot_response -a hostname=mySystemHostname "DHCP server mySystemHostname did not respond" 

My question is.. where in the heck do I find the value for these CI Types..  Im searching in the docs for CI Type and CI list .. and CI and cannot find it... so is there a list of CI types to chose from ? and where is it. ? 
thanks
