Chapter 16. The alarms Service

dCache has an alarms service which records errors (alarms) requiring more or less urgent intervention. The webadmin servlet running inside the httpd service has a special page for querying, displaying and tracking these alarms. There is also an option for sending alarm notifications via email. The alarms data can be stored either in an XML file or in a database. The alarms service is turned off by default.
