8. Alarm Configuration
When properly configured, RPC units can monitor rack temperature, ping command
response and other factors at network installation sites.
If user defined trigger levels for temperature are exceeded, the RPC can also perform
load shedding; automatically shutting off user-designated power circuits in order
to reduce the amount of heat generated in the rack. When temperatures return to
acceptable levels, the RPC can then switch circuits back on again. When any of the
user-defined alarms are triggered, the RPC can send an alarm message to the proper
personnel via Email, Syslog Message or SNMP trap.
This section describes the procedure for setting up the RPC to send alarm messages
when critical situations are detected. For instructions regarding configuration of the Log
function, please refer to Section 6.2.3.

To configure the RPC Alarm functions, access the command mode using a password
that allows Administrator level commands and then activate the Alarm Configuration
menu (in the Text Interface, type /AC and press [Enter]; in the Web Browser Interface,
click on the "Alarm Configuration" link.)
