Look at what category these flooding events belong to (right click --> Event details...).

If AC 800M, it should be "Process Simple Event" (event) or "Process Condition Event" (alarm).

The event is generated by SimpleEventDetector blocks while alarm is emitted from AlarmCond blocks. You must find these in your application. Remember, they may be embedded into object types belonging to locked/protected libraries which prevent you from debugging them - then contact the owner of the library you are using and ask for help.

A common mistake is not defining AlarmOwner which makes the event/alarm to "climb" your code and surface at top (application) level. This may also be a feature if you like to see events / alarms at top rather than embedded deeper down in objects you might not have enabled "Aspect Object" flag for.

Ultimately, there is some code making these events or alarms to be generated. You must find that part of the code and adjust the triggering or simply disable them.
