Delete an Alarm Using the CLIΒΆ

You can manually delete an alarm that is not automatically cleared by the system.

About this task


Manually deleting an alarm should not be done unless it is absolutely clear that there is no reason for the alarm to be active.

You can use the command fm alarm-delete to manually delete an alarm that remains active/set for no apparent reason, which may happen in rare conditions. Alarms usually clear automatically when the related trigger or fault condition is corrected.


  • To delete an alarm, use the fm alarm-delete command.

    For example:

    ~(keystone_admin)$ fm alarm-delete 4ab5698a-19cb-4c17-bd63-302173fef62c

    Substitute the UUID of the alarm you wish to delete.
