We have 800xA system. Our customers want to see old alarms. However you know, the 800xA system store events in defined buffers, if they are full than the oldest data get deleted.
Can we create a log file or like this for Alarms?
The history of alarms in System 800xA is called "events" (all alarms are converted into an event).
The Event Storage service stores 10.000 events from each event category and the events can be retrieved using event list aspects.
Begin with visiting the [Workplace Structure]Web System Workplace:Event List which is a totally unfiltered event list in 800xA. Then consider using other, more filtered event lists. Which depend on the application, etc. that has been set up for you. Please contact the organization that delivered the system to you for more details.
There are also a multitude of threads on AKS describing this so please search...
The handling of event lists in 800xA is described in various users's guides (Configuration User's Guide, Operator Workplace User's Guide, etc.)
