Re: Re: xMonitor test release

On the devices settings tab, are the lost and found yes/no options for
sending BSC & display messages or just display messages? I assume the
hBeat
column is for the number of heartbeats missed before a device is considered
lost?

I'm seeing some inconsistancy in xMonitors tracking of devices lost status.
Hubs appear to be tracked correctly and promptly, but pretty much
everything
else tends to stay reported as "On" regardless of whether the
device is
still running or not. Quick example, I pulled the power to Kevins C-Bus
Gateway and closed a couple of instances of Watcher, and twenty minutes
later they are still being reported as "On". This isn't 100%
repeatable
though, I did the power test with the C-Bus gateway last night and got a
pretty quick "off" result.
