GetAscii API

Top  Previous  Next

The GetAscii API, also known as the Command Line/ASCII interface, is capable of monitoring a directory or series of directories on the local hard drive or across the network for ascii file output and also also provides a command line interface for other applications to use. This module allows many 'off the shelf' and custom applications, such as SolarWinds' Network Performance Monitor, SolarWinds' Orion, Paessler's PRTG and several CAD programs, among many others, to tell PageGate when a message needs to be sent.


GetAscii can accept messages from other applications in the following ways:

Command Line


Registry Polling

Windows Messages
