The following events can be generated by NMIS, because NMIS is handling events statefully, the Event is cancelled by a "Cancelling Event".

NMIS 8.5.6G includes a feature "Event Configuration which allows users to individually manage the events and alerts NMIS generates, this can be accessed in the NMIS GUI at "System -> System Configuration -> Event Configuration".
