Does the PI Alarm Subsystem need to be running?
No, PI Alarm was mainly used when PI Notifications didn't exist. If you do not have any PI points configured for PI Alarms, then there is no need to leave PI Alarm subsystem running
Noted. How do we check if there's any PI Points configured for PI Alarms??
Simply go to SMT -> Alarms -> SQC Alarms or Alarm Groups
Check if you have tags there
By default, @ is the point source used for defining PI Alarm points. Check whether you have PI Alarm points and/or SQC Alarm points (PS=G)
