Latched alarms do not clear when disabled

Jun 3, 2013 at 8:04 PM
I disable all alarms related to device measurements when that device is either disabled or marked invalid (due to FLAG having non-zero value). Apparently all other raised alarms that were thus disabled clear either immediately or nearly so - not sure. However, it seems that latched alarms do NOT clear when disabled... ever, it seems. I believe this is an error.

On further review, it seems that NO alarms are cleared when the alarm is disabled; the disabled state seems to only affect whether or not the alarm can be raised, but have no affect on already raised alarms. Even more so...

Might have solved my problem with a hammer: if any alarms were enabled/disabled, I send an INITIALIZE command (with runtime ID), which seems to successfully restart the alarm processor. Not my favorite approach...
