FIDO: Alarm discovery and presentation
The below information is accurate as of 2020/04/20
FIDO can present a date of when an item was first monitored. By first monitored, what is meant is the first time that this specific alarm could have been presented in FIDO.

2) You can also right click any alarm and find information presented in the
How it works;
You may notice an added state of 'pending' or 'err:$x'. The fido_alarm_discovery.pl process is responsible for maintaining an SQL database of discovery data AND is also responsible for augmenting the FIDO report. The FIDO report is updated asynchronously. When something alarms on FIDO and discovery date of 'pending' is set by fido.pl. fido_alarm_discovery.pl uses the commenting feature of FIDO to asynchronously update discovery data.
