Extensive G&D standard
Of course, other applications also benefit from these advantages. Hence, the functions are permanently refined. Large parts of the G&D portfolio already include them as standard. In addition to air traffic controls, other industries value G&D’s reliable systems as well since the monitoring function does not only include KVM systems. Users are also able to monitor parameters of connected computers (USB & PS/2 status, video signal).
Easier access with SNMP tool Zabbix
The web interface of the devices displays the monitoring values, which then can be further evaluated. Additionally, the SNMP functionality offers comprehensive possibilities to set up automatisms and active alarm notifications. Here, tools to manage SNMP provide options to send warnings about critical system states via e-mail or SMS.
For customers who are not yet using extensive SNMP tools, G&D offer a simple way to use the functions included in the devices. Templates for the open source tool Zabbix are provided here. The program lets users monitor SNMP-capable devices in a network and, among other things, issues warning notifications about critical device states, which have been received via SNMP trap.
Of course, brief and easy-to-understand instructions of how to import the templates into Zabbix are included in the download . For more information about the installation of Zabbix itself, go to zabbix.com.
G&D devices with support for monitoring and SNMP
The monitoring functions as well as the support of SNMP are included in the standard of the following devices:
Digital and analogue matrix systems
