I have set up alarm parameters so that I can see an alarm summary of 1000 records. For some reason I never seem to see this many alarms on my alarm summary page even though I know there should be more than this number of alarm summary events. What is happening? 

The [alarm]summarylength and [alarm]summarytimeout parameters can be set to control the amount of alarm summary events that can be shown on the alarm summary page in runtime. The alarm summary events for all alarms are counted in this summary size so if you have excluded any alarm categories from display by selecting that option in the alarm category record, they will still be counted even though you will not see them.
