To check status information:

  • Use the command status in the CLI.
  • See the status information in the netCDF file.

CL61 alerts can have up to 4 statuses.

The alert limits are based on alert configuration parameters. See CL61 configuration parameters.

Table 1. Alert status values
Value Description
0 OK
I Indication
W At least one warning active, no alarms
A At least one alarm active

The following tables list the possible status values in the order that they appear in the CLI status information response. The order and naming of items in the CLI status information response and in the netCDF file differ slightly.
