In alarm details, third tab (other options) there is a check box for "cleared by alarms."  You have to create an "alarm" that clears the first one.    So if your alarm is for interface down you create another alarm for interface up and put that one in the "cleared by" option of the interface down alarm.

Great, but what does one do with something like a Loop alarm which doesn't send a loop gone trap?

Is the loop alarm a trap?

Hi

Yes and know. We do have a trap, but we use the syslog for the alarm.

 I would suggest looking at  syslog severity levels and see if there are any messages at the info level that say the loop condition is gone.
