Explanation:
vSphere Basic System Administration vCenter Server 4.0 ESX 4.0 ESXi 4.0, page 235.
VMware uses colors to denote alarm severity:
Normal green
Warning yellow
Alert red
You can set alarms to trigger when the state changes from green to yellow, yellow to red, red to yellow, and yellow to green.

When the virtual machine CPU usage enters a warning state, it will change from Normal (green) to Warning (yellow). When the condition has been resolved it will change from Warning (yellow) to Normal (green).

      Bob:
      I think what they are getting at is that Red is “critical” and Yellow is “warning”. Since the alarms never immediately go red from green (it needs to hit yellow) and vice versa… Then you would set a critical alarm from yellow to red and then yellow to green.
