Global Support for Dual SNMP Managers - More Flexible Alarm Reporting
NetGuardian 4.0 supports sending all SNMP TRAP and INFORM notifications to two global SNMP managers. This makes it easier to configure a secondary SNMP manager and frees up your NetGuardian configuration for more notification devices and more flexible alarm reporting.
To use this feature, simply specify two Trap Addresses in the NetGuardian's SNMP configuration. All alarms that are configured to send a TRAP or INFORM will automatically be forwarded to both SNMP managers. It's easy and automatic.
This frees up more of your NetGuardian configuration for more notification devices. You can configure up to eight additional notification devices (more SNMP managers, a T/Mon NOC, text messaging, pager or email). Plus you can configure up to four separate notifications for each alarm.
For example, you can easily send an alarm to your primary SNMP manager at the NOC; to a secondary backup SNMP manager at another location; to the pager of the on-call technician; and the email in-box of the technician's supervisor.
Alarm Point Grouping Provide Severity Levels, Custom Virtual Alarms and More
Another big new feature in NetGuardian 4.0 is customized Alarm Point Grouping. Each NetGuardian alarm point can be assigned to one of eight groups, which are identified with a user-defined label. This adds an amazing amount of flexibility to how you view and use your alarm data at the RTU level. Some of the ways you can use Alarm Point Grouping include:
Filter or Reset the NetGuardian Event Log
The NetGuardian Event Log has been enhanced to support new NetGuardian 4.0 features:
NetGuardian 4.0 also provides a new command to resynchronize all alarms. This command clears all alarms, so that a new notification is sent for all standing alarms. You can easily test alarm connections during turnup without rebooting the NetGuardian unit.
There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.
"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
