QUESTION:

In Spectrum Alarm Notification Manager, if the alarm is cleared within the "Age Time" specified, is the alarm still sent to AlarmNotifier?

 

ANSWER:

The "Spectrum Alarm Notification Manage User Guide" defines the "Age Time" parameter as follows: 

"Age Time 

(Optional) Indicates the time for which the filter holds the alarm. The alarm passes to the alarm processing application after the age time." 

Basically, when the alarm passes a filter, Spectrum Alarm Notification Manager (SANM) will hold the alarm for the specified time. If the alarm still exists (has not been cleared automatically or by the user) after the time has expired, then SANM will forward the alarm to the AlarmNotifier application for further processing. 

If the alarm has been cleared before the time has expired, SANM will not forward the alarm to the AlarmNotifier application.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Please reference the "Spectrum Alarm Notification Manage User Guide" for further information on using SANM.
