1.0 Introduction

The Operations Center F/X (File and XML) adapter provides the capability to distribute file and XML-based data collection, parsing, processing, and alarm generation using F/X Monitors into multiple Operations Center servers.

This guide describes the options for starting and stopping the F/X Monitor, as well as the range and sophistication of parsing options in the F/X Monitor. The examples illustrate how alarms are surfaced via an F/X adapter and how to manipulate them using a standard MODL hierarchy configuration.

F/ X adapters can host any number of F/X Monitors. F/X Monitors can deliver alarm content to any number of F/X adapters. F/X Monitors can be configured to multiplex alarms or operate a grouping policy where F/X adapter locations are defined in terms of Primary and Backup mode.
