Alarm States

Active alarms in NI InsightCM Server can have a combination of the following states:

Set NI InsightCM Server detected the rule condition and created an instance of the alarm. The level that triggered the alarm is still being detected.
Acknowledged A user indicated awareness of the alarm.
Cleared NI InsightCM Server detected the alarm rule is no longer true. A cleared alarm remains on the Active tab until someone acknowledges it.

Manually Removing Alarms That Have Not Cleared

The best practice is to allow NI InsightCM Server to clear an alarm, and then to acknowledge the alarm to remove it from this tab. However, if you no longer care about an alarm instance even though its status is still Set, click the Action menu , and then select Force Clear. The Force Clear option is mainly appropriate in cases where the source of the alarm is known to be malfunctioning and unable to be cleared.
