Thanks for all the suggestions.
As always with nice open source software the choices are many, I will give some of them a try.

I may try out your new one, Rolf, thanks for that!

Hi Bo,

You don’t say what platform you want to run this on.

The old EPICS alarm handler alh, a standard EPICS extension would do what you want (alh is using Motif, but not maintained any more).

https://epics.anl.gov/extensions/alh/index.php

We have a fully alh-compatible alarm handler which uses Qt. It is run here as the production alarm handler.

Hi all

I am looking for a "simple alarm monitor".
The ones I found all seems to be to large a framework to set up for what I am trying to do on a small scale.

I would just like a monitor program which monitors a small number of PV's (order of 50)

* Writes to a log when the PV goes into or out of Alarm status

* Potentially can call a external program the an alarm happens (for e.g. sending a text messeage or mail).

I was considering to write something in python, but if something like this already exists that would be easier :-)

Best

Bo
