The Metasys SNMP Agent does not support Alarm Synchronization, a function that indicates to the NMS which Metasys objects went into alarm while the NMS was offline. The SNMP Agent assumes that the NMS received the alarm and, therefore, does not rebroadcast it. Even though alarm synchronization is not performed, the SNMP Agent allows the NMS to poll points and device attributes to determine their statuses. From this information, the NMS can determine which points are reporting Alarms and react accordingly.
