Option 3.7.3. Store up to 20 Alarm Comments

Alarms can be temporarily stored in either of two ways:

Only while an Alarm ID appears in the Alarm Viewer.

When the Alarm ID has been reset, deleted, or automatically removed, the comment ceases to exist.

Until 20 comments have been listed for one Alarm ID, regardless of whether the alarm has been acknowledged, reset, deleted, etc.

When 20 comments have accumulated, the first comment entered is deleted to make room for the newest comment.
