The traps and other notifications from the devices are received by the software and are converted into events and alarms. Depending of the criticality of the fault condition, each event and alarm is assigned a severity ranging from critical to clear. Each severity is given a specific color for easy visual identification.
OpStor actively monitors the faulty events and reports or escalates the faults to the user, administrator, or any other person via email or SMS.
Alarms from the devices and its sub components are listed in the Alarms tab. The alarms table shows alarm source, severity, last changed time, and message.
Tables: Clicking on the ‘Message’ takes you to the alarm details page that lists the events that affected the alarm and alarm notes (annotations and action logs)
Operations: You can perform some operations on the alarms as part of management. Acknowledge / unacknowledge to assign owner to an alarm. Clear or delete an alarm based on requirements. Annotate a text to the alarm that can be referred later.
