Hi,

yes it's a displaymessage and an email if that is setup. I can
certainly add other schemas but I'm not sure if BSC would be the best.
If I did use bsc then it would mean every xAP device being doubled up
as a bsc endpoint. Maybe thats ok but it would mean more traffic for
no big benefit. I was thinking about the xap.log messages ( they are a
bit like syslog/windows events), Floorplan already supports them so
would log them and it would be easy to script/trigger things from
them. I presume you want to action certain things if certain apps/
devices fail?
Either way is do-able but BSC support is a much bigger job than the
log messages!
