Events and alarms

When the number of licenses used reaches 75%, 95% and 100% of total licenses an event is generated for each threshold and an alarm is triggered to warn you. These percentages are default values. Modify thresholds for these events under Event Management. See Event thresholds for instructions.

Administrators must either monitor the Security Alarms view or the Alarm panel, or modify these alarms to send a notification to administrators as they occur.
