Chapter 16. The alarms Service

dCache has an alarms service which allows any logging event to be marked as an alarm. This capability allows administrators to be directly notified of problems which need immediate attention and rectification. The alarms data can be stored in an XML file or in a database. In the basic configuration the data will be stored in an XML file.

The webadmin servlet running inside the httpd service has a special page for querying, displaying and tracking these alarms.
