Alarm Journal at System startup

Hi everyone,
I’m using Ignition 7.9.12 (b2019070213). My customer is complaining that each time he powers the PC on and the Gateway starts, the Alarm Journal gets full of alarm records saying that that specific alarm is in the Clear state. Reading through the Alarm Journal I confirm that just after gateway startup, each and every alarm defined in the gateway gets logged as Clear. My alarms are defined as Bit State alarms on 32 bits words. The guy who is responsible for the PLC programming, says that he is sure that at system startup no ON->OFF front takes place for alarm bits.

Any idea?
Thanks in advance, regards

Do you have the system set to ‘persist alarms’? Check Config -> Gateway Settings:

Hallo PGriffith, sorry for being so late back to you. I did the configuration you suggested, but unfortunately after checking on site this morning, the Clear state alarm log entries appear every morning after PC power on.
Any further suggestion?
Thanks in advance
