    Viewing the Active Alarms Graph

    The active alarms graph shows the number of current outstanding alarms in the network and provides a clear visual indication of the current overall network health. A normal, well-behaved network should have no or very few active alarms.

    This procedure helps you identify the network elements that are raising the alarms, and to see the details of the actual alarms being raised.

    Note: The examples in this section show a high number of alarms. This is for illustration purposes only.

    1. In the Alarms panel on the proNX Service Manager Dashboard summary page, click the Active tab.

      A doughnut graph depicting the number of alarms for each severity is shown. This graph is updated automatically as alarms occur.

    2. To view more details on the alarms for a particular severity, click on the graph within that severity.

      A table pops up showing the network elements that have active alarms at that severity, sorted by number from most to least.

    3. To view the actual alarms at that severity for a particular network element, click on the Alarm Count for that network element.

      The active alarms table appears, filtered for the network element and severity that you selected.

      For information on viewing and working with the active alarms table, see Viewing the Active Alarms Table.
