Manual Configuration

Configure your device to capture data

Within the Ardexa Web App, the following section describes each of the utility tabs under the selected Device's[CONFIGURATION] tab:

MENU: > [DEVICES] > (select device) > [CONFIGURATION]

Configuration sets up those functions that are generally ongoing jobs you want the device to execute.

GENERAL

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [GENERAL] tab

The default tab provided when you first arrive on the selected Device's [CONFIGURATION] component tab.

This view provides the identifiers for your device.

RUN

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [RUN] tab

The [RUN] view allows you to execute commands against your device.

CAPTURE

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [CAPTURE] tab

The [CAPTURE] view captures the mappings from your infrastructure source to the definitions in the Ardexa Device. Essentially anything that appears in a log/text file.

WATCH

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [WATCH] tab

Watch is largely used for ongoing photo capture. However, it can also be used for other telemetry purposes.

UNIX SOCKETS

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [UNIX SOCKETS] tab

Like capture, but does not write to the disk, instead it generates a stream that writes to a socket.

Further information on UNIX sockets is provided here.

EXTERNAL

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [EXTERNAL] tab

For Ardexa admin purposes.

When we capture data on-behalf of the agent, for example a data source from a cloud service to allow data to be associated with cloud sourced data.

DYNAMIC

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [DYNAMIC] tab

This list describes all of the Dynamic Run and Dynamic Tail scenarios that the Ardexa agent is aware of on the device. These scenarios are read-only. See Dynamic Configuration for more information.

RAW

MENU: [DEVICES] > [CONFIGURATION] > [RAW] tab

For admin purposes only.
