Monitoring robot: Configuring the counter-robot parameters
Overview
From the monitor, you have the ability to modify the configuration options:
  • of the robot,
  • of the counter-robot,
  • of the monitor.
Configuring the counter-robot parameters
The counter-robot parameters correspond to the parameters specified in the wizard for configuring the counter-robot.
To display the counter-robot parameters:
  1. Click and select "Counter-robot parameters".
  2. A window is opened, displaying the counter-robot characteristics:
    • Name, Computer.
    • Alert options.
Alert options

Alert by WDBal

The "WDBal" tab is used to configure the sending of error reports via the PC SOFT messaging named WDBal. To use this mode of alert message, the database of Control Centers must be accessible from the computer where the counter-robot is installed.
The "Configuring WDBal" section is used to define the access mode to the data of Control Centers:
  • In network share mode: directory of the data files.
  • In HyperFileSQL Client/Server mode: server used, port and database.
The "Configuring the contributors" section is used to define:
  • The message sender and his password if necessary. This sender is one of the contributors found in the WDBal messaging (which means in the database of Control Centers).
  • The default recipients of the message sent by the messaging. The recipient name corresponds to his identifier in WDBal.

Alert by email

The "Email" tab is used to configure the sending of error reports by email. To use this mode of alert message, an SMTP server must be accessible from the computer where the counter-robot is installed.
The "Configuring the sending of emails" section is used to define the characteristics of the SMTP server used:
  • SMTP server and port
  • User and associated password to use the SMTP server.
The "Configuring the contributors" section is used to define:
  • The sender of the message, which means the email address used as sender.
  • The default recipients of the message sent by the messaging. All you have to do is specify the email addresses of the recipients.

Using a specific program

The "Specific program" tab is used to configure the sending of error reports by a specific program. To use this mode of alert message, specify the path of the requested executable. This executable must be accessible from the setup computer of the counter-robot.
In this mode, the error report is an XML file. The path of the error report will be passed in command line to the specific program and it will have to be processed by this program.
The format of the XML file is as follows:
<Test>
<TestNumber>%1</TestNumber>
<TestName>%2</TestName>
<TestCategory>%3</TestCategory>
<TestPriority>%4</TestPriority>
<TestSyntax>
%5
</TestSyntax>
<TestSolution>
%6
</TestSolution>
<ErrorDate>%7</ErrorDate>
<ErrorTime>%8</ErrorTime>
<CustomErrorMessage>
%9
</CustomErrorMessage>
<ErrorMessage>
%10
</ErrorMessage>
</Test>
<Test>
...
</Test>
In this code:
  • %1 = Number identifying the test
  • %2 = Name of the test
  • %3 = Name of the test category
  • %4 = Priority of the test
  • %5 = Syntax of the test (associated parameters)
  • %6 = Solution proposed for the test
  • %7 = Date of the error
  • %8 = Time of the error
  • %9 = Error message specified in the form of the test
  • %10 = Error message returned by the robot

Configuring the status report

The "Configuring the status report" tab is used to configure the subject of the message sent (by email or by WDBal).
The "Object of email sent" section is used to build the title of the message. Macros are used to get specific information (name of the counter-robot, ...).
The "Color of priorities" section is used to define the color used for the first line of the error message (the message is always a high-priority message in this case).
