Power Tip #1: Ensure That You Are Receiving Alerts on Critical Events:

Posted on July 15, 2020 by Jessica Ciesla

Raritan's PX3 PDUs monitor a variety of electrical and environmental parameters. You can receive alerts on anything that gets monitored – inlet data, outlet data, circuit breaker status, unbalanced loads, and power factor, to name a few. To configure and receive alerts successfully, you need to ensure the following actions have been completed: 

1. Configure Alert Delivery Mechanism – how to set up and receive your alerts: SNMP and/or SMTP.

a. If you prefer your alerts to be sent to an SNMP manager tool, you need to enable: Device Settings > SNMP > Enable SNMP Notifications

It is important to note that this setting is different from the SNMP Agent setting. You won't be receiving SNMP alerts even if you have enabled SNMP v1/ v2c if you don't explicitly enable SNMP Notifications.
