Checking the System Status, Alarms, and Logs

  1. Log in to the Administration Center.
  2. Check the system status:
    1. Click Services > System Status.
    2. Click View Status.
    3. Verify that the following text appears in the output:
      System mode: Up
      Media control: Up
    4. Verify that none of the modules show DOWN status.
    5. If the system status details indicate an unexpected DOWN state, check the alarm table or the exception Log to see why the module or system is down, and resolve the issue.
  3. Check the alarm table:
    1. Click Services > Alarms.
    2. If the alarm table displays a relevant alarm entry, check the exception log for actual relevance to and details for the failed call.
      Checking the exception log is recommended because the alarm table combines multiple alarm occurrences into a single table entry.
  4. Check the system logs:
    1. Click Services > Logs > View System Logs.
    2. Set the parameters according to your needs.
      For example, you may want to first limit the displayed output to major log entries for the day when the issues occurred.
    3. Click View Logs.
    4. Repeat Step 4 as needed.
    For example, if the output does not include any relevant issues, then expand the output to include lower severity levels.
    If you see relevant log entries for specific module numbers, you can narrow the log output to issues for a specific module.
