customer=<customer_name>

(Optional) A customer name to associate with the PBX. When added this will be shown in the various Prognosis Displays.

site=<site_name>

(Optional) A site (location) name to associate with the PBX. When added this will be shown in the various Prognosis Displays.

ADD SYSTEM_MANAGER
This statement is used for Avaya System Manager monitoring.

<sysmgr_name>

Name given to the System Manager device.

ip=<ip_address>

IPv4 address of the System Manager device.

customer=<customer_name>

(Optional) A customer name to associate with the System Manager. When added this will be shown in the various Prognosis Displays.

site=<site_name>

(Optional) A site (location) name to associate with the System Manager. When added this will be shown in the various Prognosis Displays.


ADD SESSION_MANAGER
This statement is used for each Session Manager that is to be monitored.

<pbx_name>

Name given to the Session Manager device.

ip=<ip_address>

<pbx_name>

Name of the PBX.

mode={telnet|ssh}

Either telnet or ssh.

port=<port_number>

The SAT connection port.

DEFINE SNMP_NODE_PROFILE
This statement is optional and can be used to specify the SNMP version which a node will run in order to retrieve hardware information. By default, the nodes run SNMP V2c.

<node_ip_address>
