[erlang-questions] elarm - difference between clear and manual clear

Hi Arun,

"clear" is supposed to be called when the subsystem that raised an alarm
clears that alarm. (E.g. there is a process which monitors free disk space,
and raises an alarm when there isn't much free space; then when it notices
that there is enough free space again, it will clear the alarm by calling
"clear").

"manual clear" is supposed to be called when the subsystem that raised the
alarm doesn't clear the alarm, but the user knows that the error condition
highlighted by the alarm is not present any more. In this case the user can
call "manual clear". (Or even better, if your software has a management
interface, that can expose a "clear alarm" button, which should then call
"manual clear".)

Regards,
Csaba
