About alarms:

Alarms are warnings generated by events. Alarms communicate the same information as events. However, alarms are reported in the Alarm Monitor instead of the Event Browser, and are managed differently than events:

Each alarm in the Alarm Monitor has Help text that often provides a solution to the problem. If the solution is not apparent, use the Event Browser or the Maintenance page to further investigate the problem.

About events:

The Event Browser displays events that have been recorded in the server log. Each event identifies the time the event occurred, the object that generated the event, and the cause of the event.

Events are classified as Information, Minor, Major, or Critical. By default, the Event Browser displays only the latest 100 critical events.
