Disabling State-Change Logging of an Alarm

You disable the state-change logging of an alarm to prevent the Events pane from filling up with events caused by a faulty alarm that frequently toggles between alarm states.

Show More

Every time an alarm changes its state, such as from alarm state to reset state, an event is written in the event log and shown in the Events pane in WorkStation. You can disable state-change logging if you are only interested in the current alarm status. For example, you want to present the current alarm status in a graphic and do not care about the event history.


In the Alarm view, the value in the Count column counts +1 each time an alarm changes to alarm state. When the alarm state changes to normal, the count is reset to zero.

For more information, see Count .

To disable state-change logging of an alarm
  • In the Alarms pane or Alarm View, select the alarm you want to disable the logging for and click Disable state-change logging .
