NPI supports setting a threshold value for a metric that will result in an Alarm raised when that threshold is crossed. This allows to take an action when the system is degraded. Current implementation allows to set a threshold value for each metric that is being collected by the system. This has the limitation that you can not set different thresholds for the same metric for different equipment. For example, you will need to take action in a more proactive way depending on the SLA of the customer. Normal values might differ depending on the equipment (for example, normal values for Optical Power will be different depending on the distance of the link between equipment. In order to take full advantage of this functionality and set more useful ranges to trigger alarms, it would be necessary to set a threshold not only for a metric, but for a metric AND an interface.
