Unit Groups Monitoring

Sometimes it is more convenient to track units by groups. To switch to the mode of unit groups monitoring, select this option in the Monitoring panel.

Groups are added to the work list using the filter . The rules of using the filter are the same as for units (see Unit List Management. One can search groups by name, unit or creator. To add all available groups to the work list, press the button .

The icons described above are used on the work list. When hovering the mouse cursor over an icon such as Motion state, GPRS connection, Information accuracy or Sensor state, in a popup tooltip you see information about all units in group. To adjust columns to be displayed on the work list, go to User Settings => Monitoring Panel and select/unselect items in your own way.

Here is the list of all columns available in the group mode:

motion state (moving/standing, engine on/off),
information accuracy (the number of satellites locked and last message time),
connection state (connected/not connected),
sensor state,
display group properties dialog,
execute a command over a group of units,
remove a group form the list (but not form the system); if pressed at the head of the table, all groups are removed.

The check box before each group on the list is to show or hide units icons on the map.

Sending Commands/Messages to Unit Group

To send a command or a messages to a group of units:

  1. Click on the button against the needed group.
  2. In the dialog there will be a list of units where those which support at least one command will be ticked. Select necessary units and press Next.
  3. Select a command from the list of available commands. On the right you can choose the link type from the following: TCP, UDP, Virtual, SMS. Note that not all of these link types may be supported by your units. Auto means automatic choice of link type.
    A green sign against each command indicates that all of the selected units support the given command.
    A yellow sign with the exclamation mark means that not all units support the command, and in the tooltip you can see the list of units which do not support it.
  4. Set additional parameters if needed. For example, input/output index, report interval, etc. (depending on command type).
  5. Press OK. The command will be executed immediately, and its result will be reported in the log.
