In the Alarm Settings dialog box, use the Reporting tab to define a tolerance range and trigger frequency for condition or state triggers. Reporting further restricts when the trigger occurs.

1

If necessary, display the Reporting tab of the Alarm Settings dialog box.

a

Display the object in the Inventory panel.

b

Select the object and press Ctrl-M to open the Alarm Settings dialog box.

c

Click the Reporting tab.

2

Enter a Tolerance.

A 0 value triggers and clears the alarm at the threshold point you configured. A non-zero value triggers the alarm only after the condition reaches an additional percentage above or below the threshold point.

Condition threshold + Reporting Tolerance = trigger alarm

Tolerance values ensure you do not transition alarm states based on false changes in a condition.

3

Select a Frequency.

The frequency sets the time period during which a triggered alarm is not reported again. When the time period has elapsed, the alarm will report again if the condition or state is still true.
