The Watchdog functionality includes three new protocols: TCP, SMS (requires an external SMS module), and customizable e-mail form.
Each new protocol has its driver:
At this moment, these files need to be edited manually. Each XML file contains the documentation regarding the configuration options.
The new configuration options include filtered and conditional warnings (i.e. “send warning X only once in every 60 minutes” or “send warning X only if condition Y is not met in two minutes”), and customizable warning message format.
After the files have been edited, Watchdog needs to be restarted for the changes to take effect.
Note: This feature is recommended only for advanced users. XML files are highly vulnerable to spelling errors and mistyped strings and keys.
Even a tiny error can cause fatal errors. Mirasys takes no responsibility for XML errors caused by editing the files.
