Disabling alarms

Alarms are enabled by default, but you can disable alarms that are not required.

Disabling an alarm for an attribute that currently has an alarm triggered does not clear the current alarm. The alarm will be disabled the next time the attribute crosses the alarm threshold, or you can clear the triggered alarm.
Attention: There are consequences to disabling alarms and extreme care should be taken. Disabling an alarm can result in no alarm being triggered. Because alarms are evaluated by alarm class and then severity level within the class, disabling an alarm at a higher class does not necessarily result in a lower class alarm being evaluated. All alarms for a specific attribute must be disabled before a lower alarm class will be evaluated.
