About alarms by time



Time scale

This spans the top of the chart from left to right, and indicates when alarms (represented as colored horizontal bars) were raised, changed, or canceled.

List of connections and alarms

The vertical axis of the chart contains a tree structure. The roots of the tree represent your Spotlight connections; the branches represent the alarms that have been raised for each connection. The order of the alarm branches in each connection changes to reflect the alarms that have occurred most recently.

Severity of alarms

The color of the horizontal alarm bars change to reflect the severity of the relevant alarm. In the illustration the Threads alarm was raised with High severity, and thereafter downgraded in a series of steps to Information status, and then canceled.
