Alarm Status

Each alarm event has an alarm status that affects:

  • Whether the application displays information about that event
  • How the application displays that information

Table 20 describes the values for an alarm's status.

 

Status Description

open

This alarm event is neither closed nor fixed and is not being handled by another user.

acknowledged

This alarm event is neither closed nor fixed and is being handled by the user who set the event's status to acknowledged.

closed

Either the alarm condition associated with this alarm event is no longer true, or a user did something that canceled the alarm. (An alarm event's status can be closed even if nothing has corrected the problem that caused the event.)

fixed

The problem that caused this alarm event has been corrected.






An alarm whose status is open or acknowledged is called an active alarm . An alarm whose status is closed or fixed is called an inactive alarm . Neither "active" nor "inactive" is an alarm status.
