Alarms Overview

  • The Summary section includes the following elements:
    • The Errors and Warnings charts show top 5 objects that caused the greatest number of alarms.
    • The Total Issues chart shows alarm activity during the reporting period.
    • The Top 10 Issues table shows 10 most frequently triggered alarms.
  • The Details section provides information on each affected object , including object type, location, object name, number of triggered alarms and alarm activity trend.

Click a number in the Alarms column in the details table to drill down to details for alarms raised for the infrastructure object.
