«... Management Information Base (MIB) is a virtual database, which is used to manage objects in a communication network. The most frequently, this notion is related to Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). At the same time, it is used in a wider sense meaning a network management model OSI/ISO. Despite the fact a term MIB is not designed to denote all available information about an object, it is also often used to mark a particular subset, which can be more correctly named the MIB module.
A database has got a hierarchical (tree) structure. It is possible to address records using object identifiers OID. MIB bases are discussed in RFC documentation, particularly RFC 1155 and corresponding RFC 1213 and RFC 1157 (derived from the material named «Management Information Base» from Wikipedia) …»
Certain NetPing devices have got a possibility to work with 1-Wire sensors, such as 1-Wire temperature sensor, (THS), 1-Wire humidity sensor, (HS) and others. In turn, this allows to plug and configure sensors quickly and easily. After all, it is only to insert a cable with an RJ-11 plug into 1W (RJ-12) jack of the NetPing device to plug a 1-Wire sensor in.
In this article, we will examine plugging 1-Wire sensors to NetPing devices directly as well as using splitters and 1-Wire extenders.
TRASSIR software, which is developed by the Russian company Digital Security Systems Lab (DSSL), is a leader in the area of developing professional software for digital video surveillance systems. A possibility to integrate monitoring devices of a server room and NetPing remote power supply monitoring devices is implemented in TRASSIR software. In this case NetPing devices serve as executing devices and allow to increase a functionality of the system TRASSIR, as well as expand the applicability of the devices NetPing in different automated systems and video surveillance complexes.
In this article, connecting NetPing devices to TRASSIR software will be examined.
NetPing devices for monitoring server rooms and remote controlling a power supply have got a possibility to send e-mail notifications about triggering sensors and relays, as well as send periodical reports about status of sensors according to previously configured schedule at the page of a web interface. However, the firmware of the module for sending e-mail notifications and reports of several devices is implemented to support the work with mail servers only, which support SMTP protocol, and an authentication method AUTH PLAIN. In addition, a module for sending e-mail notifications and reports cannot support SSL, TLS or other encoding types.
To avoid problems with sending e-mail notifications from devices NetPing through SMTP servers that work without authorization, or support an authentication method AUTH LOGIN and TLS encoding, it is possible to use a local SMTP relay from Microsoft. It is installed in server rooms under Windows OS in several minutes and requires a minimal configuration to start sending e-mail notifications.
Zabbix is a free monitoring system for tracking statuses of various services of a computer network, servers and network equipment. This system has got a possibility to adjust different ways to notify a user: e-mail, SMS, Jabber, Ez Texting, user scripts. These ways to notify a user are delivery channels in use to send notifications and alerts from Zabbix. According to the fact that Zabbix supports user scripts, it is possible to use devices NetPing SMS, UniPing server solution v4/SMS or NetPing 8/PWR-220 v4/SMS as an SMS gateway to send SMS notifications about events in the monitoring system Zabbix as one of the notification methods. As a result, organising this method of SMS notifications can significantly save funds due to using alternate services for sending SMS notifications, available on the Internet.
The company NetPing announces issuing an updated version of firmware DKSF 48.4.5 for a device NetPing 8/PWR-220 v4/SMS. This firmware version contains significant error fixes, new functionality introduced and an updated design of a device web interface.
What has been changed in the latest version?
NetPing global Ltd. announces a release of firmware updates for the devices NetPing 2/PWR-220 v3/ETH, NetPing 2/PWR-220 v1/SMS, NetPing, 2/PWR-220 v4/SMS. New firmware versions for devices allowed to make their operation more functional.
What have been changed in the last versions?
The company NetPing global Ltd. announces an issue of firmware updates for devices for a remote monitoring of server rooms UniPing server solution v4/SMS and UniPing server solution v3. New firmware versions allowed to make an operation of devices even more convenient, stable and functional.

The service NetPing Dashboard allows creating an own interactive network map and a power supply control panel for devices individually, having spent several minutes. The service displays data from sensors connected to NetPing devices, which is updated in a real time. In addition, this service provides an opportunity to control built-in relays of a series of NetPing devices for a remote management of power supply sockets, thus adjusting the buttons for controlling sockets at the interactive map NetPing Dashboard.
In this article, creating a simple and convenient controlling panel for «smart sockets», located remotely in different branches of a company is described. At the picture above you can see a ready control panel for power supply of devices. Using this control panel, it is possible to turn on, turn off, reset and track a status of devices added to a scheme remotely.
Devices with enhanced features and a built-in modem, such as a gateway for sending and receiving SMS commands NetPing SMS, a device for remote monitoring of sensors via a network UniPing server solution v4/SMS and a device for remote controlling power supply sockets NetPing 8/PWR-220 v4/SMS have got a feature of sending random SMS notifications using HTTP API. This innovation can be used in the monitoring system PRTG Network Monitor to send SMS notifications about certain events in monitoring objects. As a result of organizing such system of SMS notifications PRTG Network Monitor, it is possible to save some funds using alternate services for sending SMS notifications, available on the Internet.
NetPing global Ltd. as a developer and a manufacturer of original equipment for monitoring and remote management via Internet network, announces a release of a new product – a relative air humidity sensor WS-2 for measuring a relative humidity in % with a built-in temperature sensor. WS-2 Humidity Sensor has got improved specifications compared to its predecessor, thus allowing to take readings of higher quality. It is made in the form of a board, installed into a plastic case, and a four-wire loop, which transmits an information about humidity and temperature in a digital form.
POE switch is a device, which is used to connect a power supply to several IP video cameras simultaneously and organised data transfer through a network. To create such a connection, a common twisted pair cable is used. POE switch recognizes supported devices automatically and provides their protection from short circuits and overloading.
NetPing Company issued a regular firmware update for the device NetPing /PWR-220 v3/ETH. A new firmware version allowed to make a work with a device more reliable.
What was changed in the latest version?
The most typical issue of monitoring server rooms is controlling climate and environment while a computer equipment works. Tracking temperature parameters and making a decision on results may be automated.
Let us consider an example of automation for controlling a climate in a server room based on Microsoft PowerShell script.
Syslog (System log) is standard for sending and registering notifications about events taking place in the system (i.e. creating logs), which is used in computer networks, working via an IP protocol. A term «Syslog» is used to name both a standard network protocol Syslog, and software (application, library), which sends/receives system notifications.
NetPing company informs about issuing a firmware update for the device NetPing 4/PWR-220 v4/SMS. A new firmware version for a device allowed to make a work with a device more convenient.
