Events in the ph_alert Table

All event alarms that are generated are inserted in the ph_alert table in the sysadmin database.

You can query the ph_alert table on local or remote server to view the recent event alarms for that server. You can write SQL scripts based on the ph_alert table to handle event alarms instead of using the scripts controlled by the ALARMPROGRAM configuration parameter.

By default, alerts remain in the ph_alert table for 15 days before being purged.
