An alarm is a firewall-generated message indicating
that the number of events of a particular type (for example, encryption
and decryption failures) has exceeded the threshold configured for
that event type (see Define
Alarm Settings). When generating an alarm, the firewall creates
an Alarm log and opens the System Alarms dialog to display the alarm.
After closing the dialog, you can reopen it anytime by clicking
) at the bottom of the web interface.
To prevent the firewall from automatically opening the dialog for
a particular alarm, select Unacknowledged Alarms and click
the alarms to the Acknowledged Alarms list.
