Alarm ServerΒΆ

The alarm server monitors a configurable set of PVs and tracks their alarm state. When a PV goes into alarm, this is indicated in the alarm system UI. Operators will usually acknowledge the alarm to indicate that they started to investigate. They can open guidance information or related displays, and once the alarm PV recovers, the alarm clears.
