The suite was developed at Alba in 2007 and since then it has been adopted by several other facilities and installations such as Synchrotrons and large telescopes, integrating in the process a large set of community-requested features. Its scalability is based on the stand-alone PyAlarm engines, that operate distributed across the control system; and the PANIC python API and user interfaces, that centralize the operation and configuration of the system. Each PyAlarm engine performs polled or event-triggered evaluation of alarm rules, complex logical operations and regular expression searches. The activation, recovery or reset of any alarm in the system can trigger actions like email, SMS, audible messages, local/remote logging, database insertion or execution of tango commands. This paper describes the evolution of the suite, its compatibility with other alarm handlers in Tango, the current state-of-the-art features, the compliance with Alarm Management standards and the future needs.
