Configuring On and Off Delay

Version:
Last Modified: October 16, 2020

Specify a time delay before InsightCM sets or clears an alarm to reduce alarm instances from a noisy signal.

Before you begin, configure a trend alarm rule. Configure hysteresis before configuring Off Delay. On Delay specifies the amount of time that trend values must remain above the Compare To value before InsightCM sets an alarm. Off Delay specifies the amount of time that trend values must remain below or above the Compare To, or at the hysteresis value, before InsightCM clears the alarm. To learn more about On Delay and Off Delay, refer to Conditions for Setting and Clearing Alarms.

Complete the following steps to set an On Delay or Off Delay value for an alarm.

  1. Click the Navigation menu and go to Alarms»Trend Rules.
  2. Find and select the trend rule for which you want to configure delays.
  3. Click Edit to bring up the Trend Alarm Rule dialog.
  4. Below the sample of data in the dialog, configure the delay values in seconds using the corresponding spin boxes.
  5. Click OK.
The alarm rule that you have modified will now delay the setting and/or clearing of an alarm instance by the amount of time you specified.
