Alarms List View

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst Manager

USM Central's Alarms page provides an overview of alarms triggered within connected deployments of USM Anywhere and USM Appliance. Here you can review all alarm activity, view only a select number of deployment alarms, of filter the alarms by specific details. The main Alarms page displays a graph showing an overview of recent alarm activity, and a list of the most recent alarms below it.

Across the top, you can see any filters you have applied, and you have the option to create and select different views of the alarms. The main part of the page is the list of alarms. Each row describes an individual alarm and includes a checkbox on the left side of each one for selecting it. You can select all alarms on the same page by clicking the checkbox in the first column of the header row.

Alarm Summary Graph

The section above the page includes a bubble graph that provides a graphical representation of alarms by intent. Blue circles indicate the number of times that an alarm in an intent showed. A bigger circle indicates a higher number of alarms. You can hover over each of the circles to get the actual number of different types of intent. In addition, if you click any of the blue circles, displays only the alarms corresponding to that circle. You can change the displayed period of time by clicking the Created during filter.

Alarms graphed by intent are sorted into five different categories, which are represented by the graphic icons in the display:

If you want to analyze the data and see the additional columns without having to scroll left and right, you can maximize the screen and hide the filter pane. Click the icon to hide the filter pane. Click the icon to expand the filter pane.
