View legacy alarms

Contributors netapp-lhalbert netapp-madkat

Alarms (legacy system) are triggered when system attributes reach alarm threshold values. You can view the currently active alarms from the Current Alarms page.

Note While the legacy alarm system continues to be supported, the alert system offers significant benefits and is easier to use.
What you’ll need
Steps
  1. Select SUPPORT > Alarms (legacy) > Current alarms.

    Current Alarms Page

    The alarm icon indicates the severity of each alarm, as follows:

    Icon Color Alarm severity Meaning

    yellow square icon

    Yellow

    Notice

    The node is connected to the grid, but an unusual condition exists that does not affect normal operations.

    light orange diamond icon

    Light Orange

    Minor

    The node is connected to the grid, but an abnormal condition exists that could affect operation in the future. You should investigate to prevent escalation.

    dark orange diamond icon

    Dark Orange

    Major

    The node is connected to the grid, but an abnormal condition exists that currently affects operation. This requires prompt attention to prevent escalation.

    red x icon

    Red

    Critical

    The node is connected to the grid, but an abnormal condition exists that has stopped normal operations. You should address the issue immediately.

  2. To learn about the attribute that caused the alarm to be triggered, right click the attribute name in the table.

  3. To view additional details about an alarm, click the service name in the table.

    The Alarms tab for the selected service appears (SUPPORT > Tools > Grid topology > Grid Node > Service > Alarms).

    Alarms Acknowledging
  4. If you want to clear the count of current alarms, you can optionally do the following:

    • Acknowledge the alarm. An acknowledged alarm is no longer included in the count of legacy alarms unless it is triggered at the next severity level or it is resolved and occurs again.

    • Disable a particular Default alarm or Global Custom alarm for the entire system to prevent it from being triggered again.
