Description (partial)

One or more CAR scheduler jobs can fail, with "CARSchedulerJobFailed" alarms being caught in RTMT and /var/log/active/syslog/CiscoSyslog file.  Example jobs like 'CARIDSAlarm', 'TaskMonitor', 'DailyCdrLoad'. 

In CiscoSyslog, one can usually see an alarm of 'SyslogSeverityMatchFound' right before the alarm of 'CARSchedulerJobFailed'. For example:
