Alarm Enhancements

An operator can manually reject an alarm

If an alarm or object update was applied to a running system in IGSS V9 you could end up with an alarm that would remain on the active alarms list. A new command in the IGSS alarms application now makes it possible to manually delete such an alarm.

New command-line parameters

The current alarm list may be saved to a .CSV file by running Alarm.exe with a –CSV parameter. The –file < path > parameter specifies which file should be saved to. Alarm list may be sent as an e-mail instead of by specifying –mail < address > to specify the recipient of the message.

Store alarm data in SQL database

A new option to store alarm history on a SQL server along with normal logged values has been added. Setting this option stores a copy of all alarm events in the SQL database that may be accessed by other applications or systems.

(image store alarm data in SQL database)

An alarm record will be added to the SQL database when:

  • An alarm is registered
  • An alarm is acknowledged
  • An alarm is ended
