Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Alarm Parameters > [Alarm]SummarySort


This parameter allows you to customize the order in which alarms will be displayed on the alarm summary page. It is important to use this parameter if you have remote I/O devices in your system and you want to be certain that alarms are listed according to the exact time they occurred as opposed to the time they were reported by the alarms server.

You can choose to organize alarms according to the time each alarm was activated (OnTime), inactivated (OffTime), or the time the alarm was acknowledged by the operator (AckTime). Changing this parameter at runtime will not affect the current way alarms are displayed. It will only take affect at CitectSCADA start up and is usually used in conjunction with the [Alarm]SummarySortMode parameter.
