Chasing a definition of "alarm"
2009 (English)In: Journal of Network and Systems Management, ISSN 1064-7570, E-ISSN 1573-7705, Vol. 17, no 4, 457-481 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Alarm management has been around for decades in telecom solutions. We have seen various efforts to define standardised alarm interfaces. The research community has focused on various alarm correlation strategies. Still, after years of effort in industry and research alike, network administrators are flooded with alarms; alarms are suffering from poor information quality; and the costs of alarm integration have not decreased. In this paper, we explore the concept of 'alarm'. We define 'alarm' and alarm-type concepts by investigating the different definitions currently in use in standards and research efforts. Based on statistical alarm data from a mobile operator we argue that operational and capital expenditures would decrease if alarm sources would apply to our alarm model.
