This section describes the states of a notification. It also describes the attributes of a notification and how a change in the notification’s state affects the values of these attributes. Finally, this section describes the acknowledgement and archiving of notifications.

The following notification attributes are related to a notification’s state:

  • Event State

  • First Notify Time

  • Last Notify Time

  • Last Change Time

  • Last Clear Time

  • Count


    The connotation for the Last Notify Time attribute differs between the one displayed in the SAM notification console and the IP event console. In the IP event console, Last Notify Time indicates the current timestamp of the console, compared to the actual notification time displayed in SAM. Hence, the Last Notify Time from the IP event console must not be used for correlation of the Last Notify Time between SAM and IP.
