Alarm severity can be set by user to - low, moderate, critical Alarm states can include - insufficient data, ok, alarm

Is there are relation between the state and severity? Can an alarm in "insufficient data" state have "critical" severity? Is this valid?a

Those are unrelated.

  • Severity is basically for end user - to see how important the alarm is.
  • State show the current status of alarm - is it above, below or within thresholds

Thanks. So i assume severity can be related to any of the alarm states as per your answer.

Exactly. Severity is kind 'static' (until it's updated). State transition is dynamic and reflects state of your environment
