Logical OR Conditions
The OR operator (+) links parameters in a manner where any of two or more conditions must
be true in order for the call to be counted as an Alarm Record.
Example Assume the variable "A" represents the field for the number dialed, and "B"
represents the field for the extension number. To define an Alarm Clue named "ANY" that
generates an alarm if 99 calls are placed to 555-1111 OR placed from extension 013, type the
following:
^B81,ANY\99\A=5551111+B=013 [Enter]
The Alarm Clue "ANY" would count all calls that are placed to 555-1111 OR placed from
extension 013. Calls to 555-1111 from extension 086 would be counted, and calls to 555-2222
from extension 013 would also be counted.
7.2.4. Real-Time Variables
In addition to the logical and relational operators, Alarm Clues can also include Real-Time
variables that monitor the PollCat III's internal clock and calendar.
Real-Time variables do not use the Alarm Filter Format, or monitor the contents of the call
record. When Real-Time variables are included in the Alarm Clue definition, PollCat III will
check its internal clock and calendar as each call record is received. If the time and/or date
matches the Alarm Clue definition, the call is flagged and counted as an Alarm Record.
PollCat III's internal clock, rather than the contents of the call record, determines whether or
not the record is counted as an Alarm Record.
The following Real-Time variables can be used to monitor the internal clock and calendar.
Real-Time variables are always entered as lower-case letters.
tTime: Tells the PollCat III to determine the time each record is received. The time is
entered in "HH:MM" format, where HH is the hour (00 - 23) and MM is the
minute (00 - 59).
wDay of the Week: Tells the PollCat III to determine the day of the week when the
record is received. The Day of the Week is entered as a single digit, where:
1 = Sunday, 2 = Monday,3=Tuesday,4=Wednesday, 5 = Thursday,
6 = Friday, and 7 = Saturday.
dDate: Tells the PollCat III to determine the date the record is received. The Date is
entered in "MM\DD" format, where MM is the month (01 - 12) and DD is the
date (01 - 31).
Note: A backslash character (\) is used to separate the month and date. This is
because the forward slash character (/), is reserved for use as a command delimiter.
