In some situations, two events are generated. One event occurs in the transition to a specified state and then another event occurs when transitioning back to the original state. Examples of these are losing sync and then regaining sync, or going into Holdover mode and then going out of Holdover mode. Other situations may only consist of one event. An example of this situation is switching from one input reference to another.
Notifications of each event that may occur can be via alarms, via SNMP Traps being sent to one or more SNMP Managers, via an email being sent to a specified email recipient, or a combination of the three. The Notifications page allows a user to configure whether the occurrence of each event automatically triggers an alarm to be generated, an SNMP trap to be sent out, an email to be sent out, or a combination of the three.
Also, this page allows the desired email recipient’s address for that particular event to be specified. Each event can be configured with the desired email address that is specific to just that one event only. Note that only one email address can be specified in each Email Address field. If desired, the same email address can be used in all of the fields, or different addresses can be used for different events.
Note: Whether or not notifications are enabled/disabled for a given event, the occurrence of the event is always logged.
All available NetClock events that can generate a notification to be sent are located under different tabs in the Notification Events panel: Timing, GPS, and System.
The NetClock Events that can automatically trigger a notification are listed in the Event column. It is possible to:
- Mask the alarm generation for specific events (prevent the alarm)
- Enable “SNMP” (to send out an SNMP trap)
- Send an email to the address specified in the corresponding “Email Address” column.
