The question is:
>>So what does an alarm do, generically speaking?<<

Generically, an alarm warns you. I agree that "go off" is not a good phrase.
What about:
"You can configure an alarm to warn you when a metric fails."
or "You can configure an alarm to warn users when a metric fails."

Though I agree with someone else who inquired: "How can a metric fail?"

If that doesn't work, do what it says."
