Event Alarm Logging

Event Alarm Logging enables you to log alarms for events that do not need to be acknowledged or reset. These events are normally system-based events, such as logging in and logging out. They do not appear in the Alarm Viewer. As a result, Event Logging is a convenient way for you to track a system issue that you are concerned about, but for which you do not want to have alarms appear in the Alarm Viewer where acknowledgement and resetting issues arise. :

The Database Logger enables you to:

Log data about the specially selected alarms to an ALARM_LOG table.

Save the log files, until specified criteria occur.

Have the logged data discarded, based on specified criteria.

Save the logged data to another file for future analysis.

You can display, print and analyze that information in a report that you create or in an Excel CIMPLICITY Alarm Report that is included in CIMPLICITY.

Steps to configure event alarm logging include:

Step 1

Review system alarms included in the EVENT_LOG table.

Step 2

Add event alarms through the Database Logger.

Step 3

Configure event alarm logging properties.

Step 4

Configure logging conditions for a single event alarm.
