Nokia 4G XML OSS Parameters Dump Parser


#1

Hello members.

Here you will find the Hunter Boda parser for Nokia 4G XML.

This specific post is for Nokia 4G 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 4G XML dump and parse it.

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

Step by step procedure to download and configure Hunter Boda Nokia 4G XML 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-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_4G”). 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_4G\Scripts”

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

Step by step procedure to download Nokia 4G 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 LTE Tab, check All LTE 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_4G\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 4G 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_4g_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_4G\Scripts\boda-nokiacmdataparser.jar C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_4G\Data\example_data_subfolder\example_cm_file.xml C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_4G\Output\example_output_subfolder\"

Where:
“C:\HUNTER\Boda\Nokia_4G\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_4G\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.

Just wanted to thank you for your efforts on these parsers. I have the Nokia 4G working and have the Ericsson 4G downloaded and feel certain I will be able to set this up as well. I do implementations of software and parameter changes that are supplied by the engineers, Your excellent “common man” information and instructions really helped me out working here where the rubber meets the road. Yesterday, I had a need, today you knocked it out of the park, Thank you!!

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.

@Dale_Adkins, thanks for your kind words. We appreciate the feedback especially as we are planning on providing some more tools on top of the CM data.

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

Emmanuel

@Emmanuel , Many thanks. It works!

Hello @Hunter - I have been using CM parser extensively for most of the vendors and you know what it runs flawlessly.

Fantastic job guys and many thanks for all the good work.

Some of the vendors like Nokia has LTE PM files in the xml format - do we have any parser for processing PM xml file to csv format?

It would be great help if we can have PM parser as well …

Kudos to the team!
