The Alarm/Event History display provides diagnostics and troubleshooting capabilities for the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 by rendering the latest alarms/events in the system. The system records and stores the latest alarms/events, up to a maximum of 500. Once the count exceeds 500, alarms and events prior to these are no longer available in the Event history.

The alarms/events are displayed in the same chronological order in which they occur in the system, and are refreshed once every minute. You have the option to clear the entire alarm/event history through the WebUI or REST interface (for information on REST, see Sonus SBC Edge API User's Guide). After the clear action, the alarm/event history will then start recording from the next alarm/event.

For a complete list of possible Alarm/Events that can occur in the SBC 1000/2000, see Alarms and Events Reference.
