Acknowledge alert

This is more an RFC than a concrete idea, but let’s get a discussion going to see if we can define an easy to build, useful feature.

A button to acknowledge an alert either via the cloud or via the agent should result at least in:

  • Both the cloud and the agent not sending any notifications for that alert, but until when? User-selected time period? Until it changes state (e.g. from warning to critical or clear)?
  • Ignoring the alarm in the warning and critical counters. A new state called “acknowledged” should exist instead, so that the alert could appear in lists of alerts.

We should also be able to manually remove the acknowledgement, so that it starts behaving normally again.

I believe the action should only be possible on a specific raised alarm only, not at the chart or context level.
