Will acknowledged alarms trigger events?



I have events defined for several sensors to reboot a machine should the sensor be in "error" state for a certain amount of time. Now we have implemented a Dashboard and and accoustic alarm. Obviously I don't want the alarm to sound for five minutes until the machine reboots, so I would acknowledge the alarm.

Will the events on "error" state still be triggered?

Once a down state is acknowledged, it will no longer trigger notifications.
