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.
So what have been changed in the last versions?
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.
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.
NetPing company informs about issuing software updates for UniPing server solution v4/SMS and UniPing server solution v3 devices. New versions of software allowed to make the operation of devices more stable and functional.
So what has been changed in the latest versions?
A remote sensor monitoring device UniPing server solution v4/SMS allows to organise an access monitoring system to a server room remotely on the basis of a motion sensor and a door opening sensor. What happens when the sensors are triggered: when a door is opened or a motion is indicated in a server room, a device UniPing server solution v4/SMS can instantly send SMS notifications to a technical staff. Thus, UniPing server solution v4/SMS provides additional security functions to server rooms and other rooms to prevent unauthorized access.
The following 4 things prompted me to write this article:
- The article «Why It Is Important to Maintain Temperature Conditions in a Server Room. How a Server Room Cooling Usually Works», where the author tried to fulfill the honorable and very difficult mission of explaining why it is necessary to cool servers.
- Mistakes found in this article.
- My own experience.
- A very small number of rich in content articles on the topic of data center infrastructure (I mean that a server room = a little data center) at Habrahabr. However «Beeline» and guys from "Data Centres Russia" are great in this.
My name is Marat, as for now I'm an IT specialist in a wide range of areas, almost any-key. In my review I would like to pay a reader's attention to systems of microclimate maintaining and monitoring in a server room.
