This dialog box records every instance in which an alarm was set due to a particular alarm rule.

Alarm Instances for Changed Alarm Rules

If you edit the definition of an alarm rule, any historical alarm instances remain associated with the original alarm rule. For example, if you change the trigger expression for a rule, and then launch this dialog box, the NI InsightCM web application does not display the historical instances. The historical instances remain associated with the alarm rule as it existed when the alarm was set.
