5.4.6. Push File Configuration

 

The Push File Configuration menu is used to choose parameters for the Push feature and select either the SFTP or FTP protocol.  Push capability allows the NetLink II to automatically download stored call records to your SFTP or FTP server.  Downloads can be performed on demand, according to a user defined schedule or at a user-defined start time.  For more information, please refer to Section 15.4.

To configure the Push feature, go to the Port Configuration menu (Main Menu, item 22,) and then type 31and press [Enter]. The menu shown in Figure 5.18 will be displayed.

Server Parameters

1                     Server Address: The IP address for your SFTP/FTP server (the address that will receive transferred files.)  (Up to 15 char, Default = undefined.)

2                     User Name: The name that the NetLink II will use when accessing the Server.  (Up to 16 characters, Default = undefined.)

 

 

3. File Name: The first four characters of the file name that the Push feature will assign to each "chunk" of data transferred from this unit. For more information, please refer to Section 15.4.1. (Up to four characters, Default = undefined.)

Note:  If several different NetLink II units will be transferring data to the same server, a unique file name should be assigned to each unit. This will prevent data from the various units from overwriting each other.

4. Directory: The server directory that will receive files sent from the NetLink II. (Up to 48 characters, Default = undefined.)

Note:  If several different NetLink II units will be transferring data to the same server, a unique directory should be assigned to each unit. This will prevent data from the various units from overwriting each other.

5. File Mode: Determines whether NetLink will add new data to the existing file, or overwrite the file each time new data is received.  If "Append" is selected, each data transfer will be added to the target file on the server.  If "Replace" is selected, each data transfer will overwrite the target file.  If the target file does not exist, then both Append and Replace will create a new file.  (Default = Append.)

 

Notes:

•                      The File Mode cannot be set until the Push Action (Item 32) is enabled/selected.

•                      When the SFTP Push Action is selected, the File Mode is always set to "Replace."

 

14. File Extension Increment: Enables/disables automatic sequential numbering of file names created by the Push feature. When enabled, NetLink II will append a sequentially numbered three digit file name extension (000 to 999,) which will be incremented for each new file created by a successful data transfer.  (Default = Off.)

Notes:

•                      The File Extension Increment option cannot be set until the Push Action (Item 32) is enabled/selected.

•                      When the SFTP Push Action is selected, the File Extension Increment feature will always be enabled.

 

FTP Server Parameters:

11. Password: The password that the NetLink II will use when accessing the FTP server.  (Up to 16 characters, Default = undefined.)

12. Account: The account name that will be used to access the FTP server.  (Up to 16 characters, Default = undefined.)

 

SFTP Server Parameters:

21. SFTP Server Key: This item is used to display the currently defined SFTP Server Key, or upload a new SFTP Server Key to the NetLink II unit. The SFTP Server Key can be obtained from your SFTP Server.

22. SFTP Client Key:  Downloads an RSA or DSA format SFTP Client Key, which can then be entered into your SFTP Server, allowing your server to recognize the NetLink II when an SFTP connection is made.

 

Action Parameters:

31. Read Session: Specifies the type(s) of files that will be sent. When PBX data is collected, records are sorted according to the port that received the data and the Alarm Filter matched.  The "Read Session" item allows you to select data based on these criteria. For more information, please refer to Section 15.2.2.

1                     Source Port: Selects records based on the port that received the data. When selected, NetLink II will display an additional submenu, which can be used to select one or both of the available source ports. (Default = Both.)

2                     Data Type: Allows you to choose records based on one of the following Data Types:  (Default = All.)

 

1                     All:  Sends all records; both Alarm and Non-Alarm.

2                     Standard (Non-Alarm): Send only records that did not match a clue for Alarm Filter 1 or Alarm Filter 2.

3                     Alarm Filter 1 (All): Send only records that matched any clue defined for Alarm Filter 1.

4                     Alarm Filter 1 (By Clue): Send only records that matched a specific clue defined for Alarm Filter 1.

5                     Alarm Filter 2 (All): Send only records that matched any clue defined for Alarm Filter 2.

6                     Alarm Filter 2 (By Clue): Send only records that matched a specific clue defined for Alarm Filter 2.

7                     All Alarms:  Send all records that matched either Alarm Filter 1 or Alarm Filter 2.

 

Notes:

•                      When the "By Clue" options are selected, NetLink II will prompt you to enter the clue name. If an invalid clue name is entered, the prompt will be redisplayed.

•                      When Data Type and Source Port are assigned, then the Push function will "own" this partition while the data transfer is in progress. Other users will not be able to read data from this partition until the Push action is complete. For example, if Push is set to select Non-Alarm Data (Data Type) received via the PBX IP Port (Source Port), other users will not be able to read data from this partition until the Push action is complete and the partition is released.

 

3. Start Record: The starting point for data release. Note that this value can be either positive or negative. (Default = 1.)

•                      Positive Numbers: The unit will count forward from the beginning of the selected partition (Source Port / Data Type.)  For example, if this value is set at "15", then NetLink II will begin with the 15th record in the selected partition.

•                      Negative Numbers: The unit will count backwards from the end of the records in the selected partition. For example, if Start Record is set at "-3", then NetLink II will send the last three records in the selected partition.

 

32. Push Action: Enables/disables the Push operation and selects FTP Push or SFTP Push.  The Push Action must be enabled/selected in order for the Push feature to function. (Default = Off.)

33. Periodic Push: This item determines how often the Push feature will regularly transfer data to your server.  For example, if the Periodic Push is set at 30 minutes, then every 30 minutes the NetLink II will automatically transfer stored data to your server.  (1 to 9,999 Minutes, Default = 1,440 Minutes /24 Hours.)

 

Notes:

•                      A periodic Push operation will be delayed if targeted files are being accessed by another user at the time scheduled for data transfer.  NetLink II will delay the Periodic Push until the partition is released, or the other user exits command mode. If the delay lasts longer than the user defined Xmit Delay period (Item 15,) the Periodic Push will be canceled.

•                      A Periodic Push will not be performed if the specified files are empty (no data.)

 

 

34. Xmit Attempts: The number of times NetLink II will attempt to retransmit data if the operation fails. (1 to 99 Attempts, Default = 5 Attempts.)

Note: NetLink II will not perform additional transmit attempts if the specified file(s) are empty, or if the correct Server Address, User Name, Password or Account information have not been defined.

35. Xmit Delay: The amount of time that will elapse between Transmit Attempts (Xmit Attempts.)  (1 to 99 Minutes, Default = 5 Minutes.)

36. Auto Delete:  Enables/disables the Auto Delete function for Push operations. When enabled, NetLink II will automatically delete records from memory after the server acknowledges reception. (Default = Off.)

37. Start Time: Specifies an exact start time for the next Push operation as described in Section 15.4.2. (Default = undefined.)

 

Miscellaneous:

41. Force Push: When selected, the unit will immediately perform a Push operation using the parameters currently defined by Push Configuration menu.  If the partition owned by the Push feature is empty, NetLink II will not attempt to connect to the server.  A Forced Push will not effect the Periodic Push schedule.

42. Test Push: Sends test data in order to determine if Push parameters are correctly set. If the Test Push cannot establish a connection with the server, NetLink II will display a message that describes the reason that the test failed (e.g., incorrect password.)

Note: After you have selected new Push parameters, it is recommended to use the Test Push feature to make certain that newly defined parameters will work with your SFTP/FTP application.

43. Stop Push: Terminates any Push operation that is currently in progress. Note that when this item is selected, NetLink II will immediately terminate a Periodic Push or Force Push.
