Parent Topic:   Defining an Alarm Rule

Severity is a user-defined value that can be useful in a couple ways:

  • You can sort alarms by their severity.
  • If you want to create multiple rules for the same source and condition but with different set points, severity can differentiate the rules. For example, consider the two alarm rules in the following table with different set points, severities, and email notifications.
