Use IP Tools Advanced Host Monitor with
PageGate can be easily integrated with IP Tools' Advanced Host Monitor by using the GetAscii module. When you configure an alert in Advanced Host Monitor, you can configure an "execute external program" trigger action to pass alerts to PageGate for delivery.
Note: You will need to create a directory for the integration to reference. If PageGate is installed on the Advanced Host Monitor server, we recommend creating c:\PageGateData\Ascii\. If PageGate is not installed on the Advanced Host Monitor server, be sure to share the integration directory on the network so the PageGate and Advanced Host Monitor systems both have administrative access/control.
1) Open the PageGate Admin.
2) Go to Interfaces - GetAscii - Settings.
3) Set the "Polling Directory" to the integration directory you've created (see above).
Note: If you set the Polling Directory to a shared network (UNC) path, be sure to provide the PageGate GetAscii windows service with the appropriate logon credentials to access the network data.
4) Check Enabled.
5) Click on Apply.
5a) When prompted, you do want this enabled for all existing groups and recipients.
When configuring your "Execute external program" action, this is how to call on PageGate's GetAscii module:
<Integration Directory>\sendpage32.exe <recipient or group> <sender> <message>
c:\PageGateData\Ascii\sendpage32.exe ITDept NetworkMonitor Server <IPTools server hostname variable> is at <IPTools disk space variable> disk usage.
That would send a message to the group named ITDept from the sender NetworkMonitor and the message would say "Server SMB0134 is at 95% disk usage".
