  3. For each alarm, the following parameters can be configured:
    1. Select the Clear Now check box to clear the alarm right away.
    2. Select the Auto Clear check box to clear the alarm after it happens for 24 hours.
    3. In the Severity field, select the flag to accompany this alarm. Select:
      • Critical—Indicates this alarm needs immediate attention, and is affecting the normal operation of the Timing Server.
      • Major—Indicates this alarm needs immediate attention.
      • Minor—Indicates this alarm needs attention but is not urgent.
      • None—Indicates this alarm is for information only.
    4. Select the Send Trap check box. The Timing Server will send the alarm to the Trap destinations identified on the Config page.
    5. Select the Write Log check box. The Timing Server will send the alarm to the local log file.
