Alarm indicators

An alarm is triggered when the value of an attribute reaches an alarm threshold value. When an alarm is triggered, the alarm information is displayed in the StorageGRID Webscale system and a notification is automatically sent to designated personnel.

A change in the value of an attribute can trigger an alarm. A change in the state of a service does not trigger an alarm.

There are five alarm severity levels. Each alarm level is associated with a color and an icon, as shown in the table. The entries are listed in order by severity.

Icon Color State Severity Meaning
green checkmark icon Green Connected Normal Functionality normal. A severity level of Normal does not trigger an alarm.
yellow square icon Yellow Connected Notice An unusual condition exists that does not affect normal operations.
light orange diamond icon Light Orange Connected Minor An abnormal condition exists that could affect operation in the future. You should investigate to prevent escalation.
dark orange diamond icon Dark Orange Connected Major An abnormal condition exists that currently affects operation. This requires prompt attention to prevent escalation.
red x icon Red Connected Critical An abnormal condition exists that has stopped normal operations. You should address immediately.
