The Alarm Details panel launched from the Alarms View displays a detailed narrative about the cause of the selected alarm and the event that triggered it. For example, if there is an alarm indicating that an L2 Poll failed, the possible causes are displayed indicating that the security string may be incorrect or the telnet credentials are incorrect. This gives the administrator two things to verify when trying to correct the problem.
- Select Logs > Alarms.
