The Alarms Management system comprises of Alarming, Analytics, Remediation Rules, and Actions components.

At the heart of VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance is our machine learning and analytics engine. The system is constantly analyzing the data and creating baselines, incidents, root causes, and correlating device use with network statistics. The analytics section allows you to view this data in a many unique ways.

The VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance Alarming service is a configurable facility for generating alarm events when metric values exceed configured thresholds. Example includes raising an alarm when CPU utilization of a particular device exceeds a threshold over a period. Or when available disk space on a device falls below a threshold over a period, so that manual or automated remedial action can be taken.

The core idea behind using Remediation Rules and Actions in the VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance is to provide users with zero touch or one touch resolution to potential issues in the network.
