Board-side status after alarm suppression is enabled on an OSN 6800 NE

Question:
There is no other alarm except R_LOS on an NS2 board on an OSN 6800 NE. Does the running status indicator of the board turn red or green if the R_LOS alarm is suppressed on the NMS? Does the indicator on the system control board turn red or green? Does the indicator on the top of the cabinet turn red or green?
Analysis:
None
Root cause:
None
Answer:
Generally, an NE on which alarm suppression is enabled does not monitor related alarms. The suppressed alarms are not reported on either the U2000 or NE. The indicator status, however, varies according to NE types. The OSN 6800 uses the alm-set-monevent command to configure alarm suppression on a board, and the indicator on the board and the indicator on the system control board turn green after alarm suppression is enabled. The indicator on the top of the cabinet reflects alarms of the system control board and therefore is green.
Suggestion and conclusion:
When alarm suppression is enabled on a board on an NG SDH NE and the NE actually still has alarms, the SRV indicator on the board is red. When alarm suppression is enabled on a board on a Metro 2500+ NE and the board has an alarm, the indicator is green.
