Broadcast Suite uses three basic elements within its configuration:
- Triggers are single measurement values which are linked to a certain device. These can be either binary states (e.g. power supply failed / OK) or arbitrary measurement data (text/number values) which values match, exceed or fall below a given threshold.
- One or more triggers are linked to an Event. Each event can combine the triggers either with a logical AND or a logical OR. Triggers can be assigned to multiple events.
- Whenever the status of an event changes, a set of Actions will be executed. A wide range of actions is supported, for example, e-mail notifications, SNMP, Ember+, scripts and more.
Navigation and Layout
On every page in the configuration section, the individual entries are shown as a table:
Above each table you will find the following settings:
The Service Mode disables the execution of all actions until it is deactivated again. This is especially useful during a planned system maintenance where you want to avoid alerts.
