The user was not expecting to get an alarm unless there were less than 1 or more than 100 processes running. However, the user was seeing an alarm every time one of the processes stopped running.
Causes of this problem:
The issue was with the configuration of the Process Monitor. "Alarm on Stop" was set to "True". This tells SPECTRUM when it notices any of the current running process of that type stop, alarm.
