Offline detection between an ES and an AS

Issue

How does the offline detection work between an ES and an AS?

Product Line

SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

StruxureWare 1.2.0

Cause

The ES is constantly asking for events and alarms from the AS so the ES should know directly when the AS goes offline, but it is a 30 seconds delay before the offline alarm pops up in the alarm viewer if the AS is offline.
 

Resolution

The ES is constantly polling the ES for Alarms and Events this way it will also know if the AS goes offline.
