Indicates the importance of the event message and determines when the event message is displayed. Displaying the priority of the event messages in the Event Viewer allows the user to acknowledge event messages of higher importance before event messages of lower importance. The priority number associated with the event message falls within a range of 0–255. Event messages with a lower priority number are of a higher importance or are more critical than event messages with a higher priority number. You can route event messages based on priority.
- Use a consistent priority scheme to make sorting event messages based on priority in the Event Viewer easier.
- You can specify alarm notification sounds based on alarm priorities. See Alarm Settings Tab.
