Each named application may generate a number of alarm messages during operation. These alarms may be pushed to external endpoints via mechanisms such as SNMP but are by default logged to the STDERR log mechanism.
Each generated alarm may be one of the following alarm levels:
Each alarm will contain:
- A logged error message with substituated parameters to describe the even that has occured.
- A unique alarm ID.
- A cause that describes why the alarm occured.
Alarms may contain:
- A resolution describing the steps required to resolve the alarm.
- A correlation ID or NAME that may be used to link together multiple alarm events.
