Hello..

First, I'm on digest, so if you could respond to me directly (as well as to
the list if you want), that would be great.

My situation...

I have written something to the effect of

"You can configure an alarm to sound when a metric fails."

The SME had previously written

"You can configure an alarm to go off when a metric fails."

I didn't like the "go off" verb, so I changed it to sound. He then pointed
out that it might not be an audible alarm. The alarm could be a light that
lights up, or some other nonaudible indicator.

My question...

So what does an alarm do, generically speaking?

Thanks!
