In this glossary you will find explanations of technical terms from the world of monitoring:
Auto Sense function: The intelligent AKCP sensors are equipped with a so-called car Sense function. This feature, for example, the temperature sensor from the AKCP ECUs clearly identified and temperature sensor for monitoring configured. In addition, all labeled intelligent sensors.
Basel II: In accordance with the Basel II Directives have banks in the framework of lending to companies operational risk / IT security evaluate the borrower.
Notification types: All sensorProbe and securityProbe monitoring solutions offer e-mail and SMS notification SNMP (e-mail to SMS Gateway is required). An overview can be found here.
BSI: Federal Office for Security in Information Technology. The BSI is the central IT service provider of the Federal Government and Others Editor of the IT Grundschutz Catalogues
Disconnect function: Many of the intelligent AKCP sensors are equipped with a disconnect function equipped. If the connection of AKCP measurement sensor to the control unit AKCP be interrupted, it is alarmed.
Dry Contact: Contacts With Dry contacts are dry. With the help of a cable zweiadrigen the communication to UPS systems, air conditioning, motion detectors, sprinklers, door contacts, window contacts and many other components.
Email to SMS Gateway: All leading network operators offer so-called E-to-SMS gateways. With this e-mail to SMS Gateway, you can simply e-mails to send mobile phones. The recipient receives the e-mail then in the form of SMS. The establishment of an Email to SMS gateways is very simple.
Events: In recent events (Neudeutsch: Events), you can notify extensively. This allows you to the earliest threat scenarios such as Events servers respond.
Keep Alive Trap: The function of the KeepAlive traps serves the function of permanent monitoring of the sensorProbe and securityProbe ECUs. These traps are sent at regular intervals.
Live sensor Status: All in mapping module embedded smart sensors may be provided by the securityProbe models in real-time visual representation. If e.g. in the server room a water intrusion to be registered, it will be broadcast live on AKCP mapping module optically.
Mapping Module: The Premium monitoring appliances from the securityProbe series are compatible with the mapping module. You can download building plans, building drawings etc. in the securityProbe. Already you get a visualization of the building to be monitored, server rooms. Thanks to the Selection Submap you can also use the show floors of the buildings. Ideal for monitoring centres and Control.
MIB-Files: The Management Information Base (files) are included in the sensorProbe and securityProbe models.
Mobile Access: With the help of AKCP Mobile Access software, you can per Nokia mobile phone (Symbian OS is required) worldwide to access securityProbe models. Mobile IT monitoring has become a reality (network reception provided).
Modbus: Modbus is one in the industry / automation technology widespread communication protocol. The securityProbe, securityProbe-X20 and X60-securityProbe support the serial Modbus standard.
Monitoring: The term monitoring is the targeted monitoring processes with the help of observing systems to understand.
NAGIOS: A Ethan Galstad developed open-source network monitoring tool, which is zunehmends very popular. NAGIOS www.nagios.org you can download. In the premium environmental monitoring solution is already securityProbe NAGIOS preinstalled - additional hardware as a server or NAGIOS NAGIOS PC is therefore not required. Didactum ® designs and implements NAGIOS installations for customers of any size.
NMS integration: All AKCP sensorProbe and securityProbe monitoring devices can in leading network management systems. The securityProbe models are already equipped with a pre-NAGIOS.
Notification Wizard: The series is securityProbe with the AKCP Notification Wizard. Here you can within your company escalation precise emergency management plans show.
OID: The intelligent sensors are equipped with a AKCP OID (Object IDentifier). The list of the OID AKCP monitoring products can be found for the support request.
Potential Free Contact: see Dry Contact.
probeManager: The probeManager of AKCP serves the management of existing sensorProbe2, sensorProbe8 and securityProbe monitoring appliances. By probeManager your AKCP monitoring hardware centrally manage. The probeManager can be obtained from the AKCP partner Didactum ® request.
RRDtool: The RRDtool (Round Robin Database Tool) is one of Tobi Oetiker developed open source tool for data collection and visual display of time sequences. http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/. There are many RRDtool front ends such as Cacti.
Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX): The SOX was as a result of U.S. financial scandals in 2002 by the U.S. Congress, and requires companies to the accuracy of published Geschäftsberiche. The SOX controls, etc. the transparency, accountability and availability for the compilation of annual reports required IT infrastructures. The SOX also applies in the U.S. listed companies. There are cases where the SOX, the EU adopted Directive 2006/43/EC, which also called Euro-SOX. The EUR-SOX will be transposed into national law.
Sensor Notification Matrix: see Notification Wizard.
SNMP: The protocol SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a widespread network protocol, which is used for the monitoring and control of netzwerkbasierenden products (servers, switches, routers, etc.) is used.
SNMP Trap: Unsolicited message of the SNMP agents to the manager that an event occurred.
Dry Contact: see Dry Contact.
UPS: uninterruptible power supply (UPS engl.) for the supply of business systems. You can change your uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) with the monitoring AKCP products monitor non-stop.
