An Alarm Type defines the schema for an alarm. This includes data to indicate when the alarm must be triggered, and when it should be cleared.
Alarm Types can be created, edited and deleted. To create a new alarm type, the following information needs to be provided:
- Alarm Settings: This includes the name, severity, the alarm field and any notifiers
- Trigger Condition: This includes the condition for triggering the alarm.
- Clear Condition: This includes the condition for clearing the alarm.
- Filter: This includes the filter to select the scope for the alarm.
