Device Criticality

The Device Criticality setting, accessible from a device model’s Attributes tab, specifies the relative importance of the device within the network being modeled. When sp loses contact with the device, this value is summed for the device itself and all of its downstream neighbors for which a gray condition is now being asserted (because their actual status cannot be determined). The aggregate device criticality value is displayed as the Impact Severity value of the associated alarm in the alarm’s Impact tab. The default value for all devices is “1”; you can increase this value as desired depending on how important you consider the device to be; the higher the number, the more critical the device is to the network.
