Huawei 3G CFGMML OSS Parameters Dump Parser


#1

Hello members.

Here you will find Hunter’s Boda parser for Huawei 3G CFGMML.

This specific post is for Huawei 3G CFGMML issues only. If you have questions regarding other Vendor/RAT, please either find appropriate topic or even create a new one - if not already created.

The following sections contain the steps to obtain a Huawei 3G CFGMML dump and parse it.

==================================================================================

Step by step procedure to download and configure Hunter Boda Huawei 3G CFGMML Parser

  1. Click the link below and download the boda parser to an appropriate folder on your computer.
    Tip: follow the recommended Hunter folder structure so that it will be easier to organize future parser versions, and also other parsers for other RATs.
    Download Link: boda-huaweimmlparser.zip (624.3 KB)

  2. The Hunter folder structure starts with a “Hunter” base folder. Then, a subfolder for “Boda”. In the Boda folder, create a folder for this parser (“Huawei_3G”). And finally, the module folders: “Scripts”, “Output” and “Data”.

3.For now, we will follow the Hunter folder structure and download the BODA Parser “boda-huaweimmlparser.jar” to “C:\Hunter\Boda\Huawei_3G\Scripts”

==================================================================================

Step by step procedure to download Huawei 3G CFGMML Configuration Parameters from OSS

Let’s obtain the raw CM dump file.

  1. Launch “iManager M2000”.

  2. Access Menu: Maintenance > MML Command.

  3. Select the desired RNC and RUN command “EXP CFGMML” giving the file an appropriate name.

The file will be saved at:
“\bam\version_a\ftp\export_cfgmml” or “\bam\version_b\ftp\export_cfgmml”, depending on current BAM.
Using your FTP username and password, connect with any FTP client and download this file to your computer.

Following the Hunter folder structure, download the file to “C:\Hunter\Boda\Huawei_3G\Data”. This folder will hold this specific dump. Of course you can download to any other folder you want - just make sure it will be easy to find later. :slight_smile:

==================================================================================

Step by step procedure to parse (process/extract) Huawei 3G Configuration Parameters

With the raw dump file downloaded, let’s extract the Parameters!

  1. First, check if the downloaded files are compressed (ZIP, RAR, 7-z, GZ, etc…). If so, uncompress them using any compression/uncompression utility such as Winzip, Winrar or 7-zip.

  2. Next we run the parameter extraction command. We advise you to create an auxiliary text file, to store/modify the command.
    Under the Scripts folder, create a file called “huawei_3G_cfgmml_usage.txt” to hold the command for future reference
    Adjust the command based on the syntax below.
    “java -jar boda-huaweimmlparser.jar inputFile outputDirectory”

  3. Run the command and wait for it to finish.
    IMPORTANT: Please make sure you run the command on ONE LINE ONLY (not on separate lines).

  4. Done! All your parameters will be extracted into csv files. These can be opened using any text editor, Microsoft Excel or Access .

Example
"java -jar C:\HUNTER\Boda\Huawei_3G\Scripts\boda-huaweimmlparser.jar C:\HUNTER\Boda\Huawei_3G\Data\example_data_subfolder\example_cm_file.txt C:\HUNTER\Boda\Huawei_3G\Output\example_output_subfolder\"

Where:
“C:\HUNTER\Boda\Huawei_3G\Data\example_data_subfolder” is the folder where you have your dump file;
“example_cm_file.txt” is your dump file;
“C:\HUNTER\Boda\Huawei_3G\Output\example_output_subfolder” is the folder where all csv files will be created.

For a more detailed example, please check this topic: General instructions for using the CM parsers to process any network dump

==================================================================================
That’s it.
Hope you all like and participate.
Help us by inviting your friends to the community, feedback/suggestions, and of course asking us whatever issue you may find.
Let’s build a totally new Telecom/IT global community.

Huawei 4G XML OSS Parameters Dump Parser

Hello Emmanuel.
Thanks for sharing these tools,
I have a doubt, if it is possible to parse the Huawei 3G files in xml format?

Hi @GrishManouk,

We have about 4 different parsers for Huawei XML hence we thought MML may be more universal. However, we will make these available in due course. What is the format of XML file dump? Or what steps did you take to get the dump?

BR,
Emmanuel

Hi Emmanuel,

We get the dumps directlyin xml format from our operator. I have sent you the first lines for each dump.

@GrishManouk,

A new post has been created for the Huawei NBI export XML files. Let has us know if this does the job for you. I have provided the link to the post below.

BR,
Emmanuel

Hi all,

A new version of the parser has been released. The biggest change in this release is the creation of separate CSV files for the ACT, DEA, BLK, UBL, MOD, and UIN commands. For example, all activation entries for ETHPORT ( i.e lines with ACT ETHPORT: … ) will go into ETHPORT_ACT.csv.

Otherwise, enjoy and let us know if you run into any issues.

Emmanuel
