Description of Operation

The basic level of an alarm defines the minimum and maximum values of the alarm's weight. When an alarm is detected, the system must determine the number of monitoring objects, services, and users affected by the alarm. The maximum severity level is the minimum value for the next level. After detecting an alarm on specific equipment, the system calculates the alarm's weight and in which interval of basic severity values the alarm falls.
