F/X Monitors are comprised of Alarm Delivery Instances (management of connection with remote adapters and alarm delivery), central processing of alarms, and collector/parser combinations. The collector defines the mechanism used to collect file content. The parser describes how to parse the data from files into alarms.
Both collectors and parsers reference plug‑in classes, enabling extra collection and parsing capabilities to be added to the F/X adapter base capabilities.
