7.2. File List Screen


As shown in Figure 7.3, this screen shows a breakdown of the types of records stored in buffer memory.  Records are listed according to Data Type and Receiving Port. There are three Data Types; Standard (Non-Alarm), Alarm Filter 1, and Alarm Filter 2.  There are two Receiving Ports; the Serial PBX Port (PBX) and the PBX IP Port (PBX-I.)  When Data Type and Receiving Port are combined, this provides six possible file types.  For more information, please refer to Section 15.1.1.

The File List includes the following information:

•                      Port: The Input Port (Serial PBX Port or PBX IP Port) that received the records.

•                      Data Type: The type of record is listed as follows:


• Standard:  (Non-Alarm) Records that did not match an Alarm Clue.

§ Alarm Filter 1:  Records that match any Clue from Alarm Filter 1.

§ Alarm Filter 2:  Records that match any Clue from Alarm Filter 2.

•                      Total Record Count: The total number of records of this type, including records that may have been stored outside of the current partition after the partition was set.

•                      Partition Record Count: The number of records in this partition.

•                      Partition Owner: The name of the command port (Console Port, Modem Port, or Net Port) or FTP Function that owns the partition for this type of record. When data is released, each command port or FTP Function is temporarily designated as "owner" of a specific type of record. For example, the Console port may own all records received via PBX Port A, or the Modem Port may own all records that match a clue for Alarm Filter 1.



7.3. System Status Screen

As shown in Figure 7.4, this screen summarizes communication parameters and general system parameters. The System Status Screen also lists installed memory modules, command port connection status, and Set-Up Switch Status:

•                      Memory Configuration: Installed memory modules, the amount of base memory, and total memory capacity.

•                      Dip Switch Settings: Shows the current status of the first three DIP (Set-Up) Switches.  Set-Up Switch functions are described in Section 4.2. (Note that the status of Sw4 is not shown; Sw4 is a hardwired switch that controls the Modem speaker.)

•                      Serial Port Communications Settings:  Baud rate, parity, data bits and stop bits information for the PBX Input Port, Console Port and Modem Port.

•                      System Parameters:  User-defined access passwords (Supervisor Password not shown), Site I.D. message, and the status of the wrap-around feature.

•                      System Parameters:  List the user defined Site ID message, plus the status of the Invalid Access Lockout feature, Wrap Around feature, and Alarm Data Wrap Around feature.

•                      Command Port Status:  Shows current online/offline conditions for the Console Port, Modem Port and Network ports.

•                      Polling Port Status: The online/offline status of the Push function and Server Function.
