Nokia 3G XML OSS Parameters Dump Parser


#1

Hello members.

Here you will find Hunter Boda parser for Nokia 3G XML.

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

The following sections contain the steps to obtain a Nokia 2G XML dump and parse it.

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

Step by step procedure to download and configure Hunter Boda Nokia 3G XML Parser

  1. Click the link below and download 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-nokiacmdataparser.zip (7.7 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 (“Nokia_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-nokiacmdataparser.jar” to “C:\Hunter\Boda\Nokia_3G\Scripts”

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

Step by step procedure to download Nokia 3G XML Configuration Parameters from OSS

Let’s obtain the raw CM dump file.

  1. Launch “CM Operations Manager” and select Menu File > Export Actual Configuration.

  2. In the “Current Configuration Export” Window:
    Uncheck ALL Objects.
    In the RNC Tab, check All RNC objects.
    In “Export Target”: define the name of output file.

  3. Select Start to generate the XML file.

Following the Hunter folder structure, download the file to “C:\Hunter\Boda\Nokia_3G\Data” This folder will hold this particular 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) Nokia 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 “nokia_3g_xml_usage.txt” to store the command for future reference.
    Create the command using on the syntax below:
    “java -jar boda-nokiacmdataparser.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\Nokia_3G\Scripts\boda-nokiacmdataparser.jar C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_3G\Data\example_data_subfolder\example_cm_file.xml C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_3G\Output\example_output_subfolder\"

Where:
“C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_3G\Data\example_data_subfolder” is the folder where you have your dump file;
“example_cm_file.xml” is your dump file;
“C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_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.

Hi all,

A new version of the parser has been released. Everyone is strongly advised to download and use the new parser. Also, note that the old parser will/may not work after 1st August :). This we did so that members can get access to the new features and bug fixes.

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

Emmanuel

Looks very good tool, very quick and impressive but it doesn’t support all parameters of RU16.

In WBTS i found below parameters showing no values
