The Alarm Filter

Abstract

The Alarm Filter allows the user to search for alarms by specific criteria or combination of criteria. Check out more details about the filter criteria here!

The Alarm Filter is very similar with The Events Filter as it allows the user to search for alarms by applying specific criteria (or a combination of criteria). If no filtering criteria is applied to the list, all the alarms will be displayed for the searched pattern.

The Alarm filter options are available on the upper right side of the Alarms panel and the Historical Alarms panel.
