The 'Apps' page displays all currently registered apps. The page behaves similarly to 'Monitor' -> 'Extensions' with the exception of no rows being displayed for Extensions that do not have any apps present.

Settings

5-0--monitor-settings.png

User can here modify Monitor Settings. The warning system monitors all SIP/IAX peers (Extensions and Trunks) on a PBXware system. If that peer is unreachable, an email notification is sent to the administrator(s).

  • Monitor SIP peers
The PBXware warning system needs to know which of its peers are to be monitored, and when this option is checked, the system will monitor SIP Extensions.
(E.g. Click the checkbox to monitor SIP Extensions)
(Check box)
  • Monitor IAX peers
If this option is checked, the system will monitor IAX extensions.
(E.g. Click the checkbox to monitor IAX Extensions)
(Checkbox)
  • Monitor Trunks
When this option is checked, the system will monitor Trunks.
(E.g. Check on the checkbox to monitor Trunks)
(Checkbox)
NOTE: When monitoring Trunks, PBXware will try to dial a test number provided in the Test number field under the Trunk. If the received signal does not match the 'ANSWER', 'BUSY', 'CANCEL', or 'NOANSWER' reply, the test call is considered non-functional and it will trigger the warning system to send a notification email. For example, a number that can be used for this instance is an automated time service which many telephone service providers offer for free.
  • Send emails from:
In order to customize the email address from which the notification email will appear to be sent, set the preferred email address in this field. When the administrator receives a warning email, it will look like it has been sent from the email address provided here.
(E.g. warning@example.com)
([a-z][0-9], @)
NOTE: This email address does not have to be a valid email account, but if the SMTP server used for sending e-mails from PBXware does not support this, the email will be sent from the email address associated with the account used for the PBXware registration on the server. In some cases, the server will not even send e-mails if the "from:" address is set to a non-existing value.
  • Message re-send delay [min]:
To prevent PBXware from sending too many notification emails about every peer that is unavailable, a time frame t which notifications are sent can be set. Once a notification email is sent and another Extension becomes unavailable, the notification about the latter unavailable Extension will be sent only after the given amount of time.
(E.g. 15)
([0-9])
  • Check cycle [sec]
Set how many seconds pass between checks
(E.g. 120)
([0-9])
  • Send warning messages to the below email addresses:
Notification emails can be sent to as many email addresses as needed. In order to add a new Destination, click the 'Add' button and type the email address into the appropriate field
(E.g. johndoe@somemail.com)
([a-z][0-9], @)

TIP: After all steps have been completed, users should restart PBXware.
