Viewing the IOC Alarm Setup

As explained in the section about alarm concepts an alarm must be configured both in the alarm handler and the IOC.

The IOC alarm setup is usually provided by the controls group or special configuration tools.

The IOC configuration of an alarm channel can be inspected  by showing the alarm details (either in a popup dialog or the in-line detail frame).

Right-clicking on this area (outside the guidance text box) will pop-up a dialog which displays the IOC alarm configuration for the selected alarm channel. This information depends on the EPICS record type.
