Alarms

The Alarms widget has three different visualizations: Table, Summary, and Graph that can be swapped between in the widget settings. For the Summary and Graph visualizations, the previous number of days, up to 60, to display is also available. The Display Acknowledged Alarms toggle controls whether or not alarms with an Acknowledged Time should be included in the table visualization.

Table

The Table visualization shows information about recent alarms, including when they occured, what type of alarm, and the element affected. When you select an alarm from the list, you can perform the following actions:

  • Details: View more details about the alarm, including the cause

  • Acknowledge: Mark the alarm as acknowledged and sets the Time Acknowledged

  • Delete: Deletes the alarm from the list

You can filter the list of alarms using the Filter button, displayed at the right side of each column header when you hover with your mouse.

Summary

The Summary visualization displays a table that summarizes the number of Acknowledged and Unacknowledged alarms at each severity level. The time frame for this summary is based on the setting for Previous Graph/Summary Days. If you select a timeframe that is greater than the archive age time, you will not be able to see information for the entire timeframe. For more infromation, see Database archive.

Graph

The Graph visualization displays a line graph that summarizes the number of alarms of each severity level of time. The time frame for this summary is based on the setting for Previous Graph/Summary Days.
