I’m loosing my mind trying to stop an alarm from coming up. Every second or two for a couple weeks now I’ve been getting an alarm from a tag. Originally the tag was configured with the alarm, but when I noticed that I was getting lots of them I tried the following:
-First I played with the active and clear delay times, but there was no difference. I tried things like setting that the alarm had to be active for thousands of hours, but I still get the alarm every second or so.
-Then I tried renaming the alarm, but the alarm that is coming up never got renamed
-Then I deleted the alarm itself but left the tag, but still go the alarms
-Now I’ve deleted the tag completely, but the alarm is still coming up every couple seconds.
The path to the alarm is being shown as “prov:PMCS_SQLTags_Provider:/tag:KSLNYTRR/Fuel_Level_Alarm:/alm:Fuel Level Alarm” which to me implies that I should look under Tags/KSLNYTRR/Fuel_Level_Alarm. This makes sense, since this is where the tag and alarm were originally configured. But then I deleted the alarm, so “alm:Fuel Level Alarm” no longer exists, and I still get the alarms. And then I deleted the whole tag, but I’m STILL getting the alarms.
I took a huge slap on the wrist and broke down and restarted everything but I’m still getting the problem.
Below I’ve attached a screenshot of the Ignition alarm events table to show the alarm paths, and I’ve included a screenshot of the tag configuration in Designer. The tag used to exist right above “Fuel_Theft_Alarm”.
I’m stumped. The only thing I can think of is that I’m looking in the wrong place for the alarm. Am I misinterpreting the alarm path or something? The only other place I know alarms can come from are from the transaction groups, but I’ve verified that none are configured there (and those have a different “prov:” in the alarm path). I’m also pretty sure I was looking at the right tag, because when I watched it I’d see it go on and off rapidly. What else can I try?
