The Alarm Management API lets you construct application programs that generate, reset, acknowledge, and delete alarms. The application programs can use the standard C language functions provided by the API in order to communicate with the Alarm Management module of CIMPLICITY software's Base System.
This API gives you transparent access to the CIMPLICITY alarm database in order generate new alarms or modify the status of existing alarms, regardless of the physical location of the application program.
A C language subroutine interface is available for application programs modifying alarm status. The C language interface is used on nodes where a CIMPLICITY environment is currently running.
