Here’s another fun PAC Manager customization option, and the answer to: Why is that exclamation point there?
Specifically, the exclamation point that shows up here on the Inspect > Status Read page in certain situations. If you click on that button, you’ll see a message like this explaining the cause of the warning:
Warnings you may see on a standard installation of PAC Manager (yellow exclamation)
[INDENT] F03A0004 Warning! The OptoMMP port is not set to the default value of 2001.
F03A0008 Warning! The Modbus port is not set to the default value of 502.
F03A000C Warning! The SNMP port is not set to the default value of 161.
F03A0010 Warning! The FTP server port is not set to the default value of 21.
F03A0074 Warning! The Control Engine port is not set to the default value of 22001.
F0380004 Warning! This device is set to Always BootP on Powerup.
Warning! The analog and high density digital scanner is stopped.
Warning! The digital 4-channel scanner is stopped.
Warning! The control engine is stopped.
If you’d like to add your own warnings about the Status Read area (they’ll be announced by a [B]red [/B]exclamation point), put a file like the one attached in that same PAC Manager directory (mentioned in previous post), the install directory. The filename must be: [B]Manager_StatusRead.cmp [/B]
Each time Inspect mode is entered, this file is read. (Pressing “Refresh” won’t re-read the file, but if you press “Status Read” again after a file change it will update.)
The file contains a list of memory map addresses from the Status Read page, a value to be compared (=, !=, <, > operators are allowed) and a message to be displayed if the comparison is true. It works on T/F (false=0), integer, and float types. It cannot currently be used to monitor a random memory map location. It is meant to flag items on the Status Read page that are out of the ordinary.
Here’s a some values you might want to check/include, which you’ll find in the sample attached file:
[INDENT]F0300070,>,0,Late Collisions are logged.
