MonitorWare Agent Features – Serial Port Monitor
The serial port monitor service allows to monitor devices attached to local communications ports. This is not limited to serial (RS232) devices – devices connected via the. LPT or other ports can also be monitored as long as the device provides a proper interface. The device monitor can often be used to monitor devices that are normally not network-accessible at all (like some PBXs).
The serial port monitor listens to the configured port. With each received character, it checks if a configured “message send sequence” is received. If it isn’t, it continues listening until either another character is received or a timeout occurs. If either the “message end sequence” is received or the timeout occured, the message is considered to be complete. In this case, an event is generated and get scheduled for processing.
