Embedded Data Systems is pleased to offer an easy to use solution for remotely monitoring the temperature of your IT or other operating infrastructure. By offering out of the box compatibility with HelpSystems' InterMapper Network Monitoring Software, our hardware will feed live data representing the temperature and other environmental conditions of your server rooms, racks, individual servers, HVAC ducts, etc. to your new or existing installation of InterMapper. InterMapper can then proactively notify you when the temperature goes above or below pre-defined thresholds, enabling you to take corrective measures before encountering costly downtime. In addition, InterMapper can produce graphs of all the historical temperature data it has collected, allowing you to spot potential problems before they happen.
EDS offers two compatible monitoring systems:
The MeshNet Intermapper probes support a wireless connection with up to 7 wireless sensors and the MeshNet Controller base unit. Sensors available for monitoring:
The OW-SERVER Intermapper probes support wiring up to 7 1-Wire sensors per server. Sensors are available for monitoring:
All communications with our hardware occur using SNMP, allowing you to collect temperature data without complicated proprietary sensor wiring, and without occupying serial ports on servers, etc. This means you can simultaneously monitor multiple dispersed locations using your existing LANs, WANS, and/or VPNs.
The installation of each location consists of one base unit (OW-SERVER or MeshNet Controller) and one or more compatible sensors (up to 7 per base unit). Begin by providing the network connection to the base unit. Configurable options include IP address, DHCP, LED/Relay behavior, and more. For each type of device it monitors, InterMapper requires a probe file which instructs it on how to interact with the device. The probe files may be downloaded on our Getting Started with OW-SERVER & MeshNet systems in Intermapper. Installing the custom probe is as simple as copying it into the 'InterMapper Settings:Probes' folder and then telling InterMapper to reload probes. For absolute convenience and no guess work, you'll find a list of sensor kits below which work with InterMapper right out of the box. For more flexibility, feel free to build your own kit by selecting the individual sensors below.
