-- Existing 19 inch server racks must be monitored around the clock. Critical temperatures can quickly develop in the often tightly packed server rack. An excessively high cabinet temperature can endanger the sensitive electronic components of network switches, backup systems and servers. A UPS system installed in a 19-inch server cabinet can also be damaged if the temperature is permanently too high. There are other risks and dangers lurking in the server rack that can be detected and reported in good time by installing a suitable server rack monitoring system.Cabinet monitoring / rack monitoring in real time
An Ethernet-based rack monitoring system from Didactum allows critical physical environmental conditions in the server rack to be monitored in real time. For example, the Didactum Rack Monitoring System 100 includes a precise temperature sensor for temperature monitoring inside the server rack. The rack monitoring system has 4 sensor connections, 4 inputs for current-free signal contacts and 2 switching outputs. Optionally available sensor boxes provide connections for other important sensors (humidity sensor, water sensor, smoke detector, door contact sensor, etc.). Individual notifications and automatic actions can be stored in the easy-to-use web interface of the rack monitoring system.Notifications and alarms
If, for example, the temperature in the 19-inch server rack is exceeded, administrators and technicians are informed by e-mail and / or SMS* (*GSM modem or e-mail to SMS gateway required). At the same time the Rack Monitoring System can send messages via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). In addition to SNMPv1, the v2c and v3 protocols are also supported. The SNMP MIB file required for computer and network monitoring software can be loaded directly from the German web interface of the Rack Monitoring System. Free plugins for Nagios and templates for Zabbix are also available for this rack monitoring system.
