Use the Alarms and Events view to monitor and acknowledge alarms and events. You can view alarms and events of other processes by using the Select Processes dialog box. By default, the Alarms and Events view displays alarms and events of systems in My Systems. You can add a system to My Systems to access systems that do not appear in the system tree pane.

This view includes the following components:
