English term or phrase:Gestion du système; Gestion de la configuration et des alarmes
I said "System Management" because it was written "gestion" and not "administration" but I think the expression "System Administration" is more common. Also, what about "alarm"? I'm not sure if I should call it "alarm" or "warning". Alarms are generated to warn the user if there are problems.
1) I would keep System Management to translate "gestion".
2) I prefer "warning": it tells you preventively that you are doing something wrong, whereas in understand that "alarm" means that you have done something wrong or that something has gone wrong. What do you say about "Waring message"?
I hope I have helped.

"Alarme" could also be the way to say to the user that something has been changed in the software, for example if he was waiting for a new information.
If your software is a stock management software, "alarme" could appear for example if the minimal stock is reached.
In this way, I would translate by "warning" or "warning message" (as the previous answer said).
