Re: How to check last sys LOG Alarm from IMC

There's a few possible locations:

* Alarm -> Alarm Browse -> All Alarms. Filter for your device. That way you can see recovered alarms

* Alarm -> Syslog Management -> Browse Syslog. Look for your device. This will include those logs that were not escalated to alarms.

* Alarm -> Trap Management -> Browse trap. Similar to above. 

IMC also ages out old alarms from the DB. If you have a high rate of events, your old events may have been aged out. Go to System -> System Configuration -> Data Export Settings to see what's configured, and where the old events are getting exported to. Search through those files.

You may not be able to find anything useful though - e.g. if someone kicked the power cord out, you won't get any useful syslogs about that, other than the restart message.
