2.2. Alarms, Events, and Notifications

In this initial version, this MIB defines the concepts of "alarms", "events", and "notifications". Each alarm is a specific condition detected through the periodic (at a configured sampling interval) monitoring of the value of a specific management information variable. An example of an alarm condition is when the monitored variable falls outside a configured range. Each alarm condition triggers an event, and each event can cause (one or more) notifications to be reported to other management stations using the Inform-Request PDU.

Specifically, this MIB defines three MIB tables and a number of scalar objects. The three tables are: the Alarm Table, the Event Table, and the Notification Table.
