Due to the nature of many environmental projects, immediate notification of failures is a necessity. The iChart System Monitor allows a project manager to receive critical messages such as failure to retrieve data or upload data online. Click Project | Project Monitor. The System Monitor will appear.
The Status tab of the System Monitor sets the schedule on which the iChart project status information should be emailed (Note: an email server must be setup in Edit | Preferences for emails to be sent). This email includes information such as what devices are enabled or disabled, if iChart is currently closed, and if auto interrogation is on or off.
The Alert tab of system monitor sets the schedule and conditions on which iChart will send an alert email. These conditions include auto interrogation failures, data not being up to date, failure to post data online, and the reporting of any error codes in the data, such as missing or out of range values.
