EdgeXOS Custom API 101

XRoads Networks has developed a custom API which allows our customers to make directed queries based on the information stored within the EdgeXOS platforms database. These queries can be 100% dynamic, meaning no pre-defined MIB is required. This is a dramatic advance in customizable reporting systems and is only available in the EdgeXOS platforms.

API Advantages

  • XGM Compatability
  • Fully Dynamic
  • No MIB Required
  • Quick Development Cycle
  • Unsurpassed Flexibility

The dynamic SNMP MIB is just one of the custom programming options built-in to the EdgeXOS platform. Additionally our syslog service is easily customizable for specific OEM and/or multiple site deployments.

  • Customizable SNMP Messages
  • Customizable Syslog Messages
  • Customizable Email Messages

For more information on how our syslog service can be modified for your own requirements, please contact an XRoads Networks sales representative.

Our XRoads Global Manager (XGM) is tightly integrated utilizing these new API's.

EdgeXOS Reporting & Alerting

The EdgeXOS platform is designed with a number of extra monitoring and alerting features. These additional features are valuable as they are close to the customers network and thus provide better sight into the network without potential security issues.


XOS Preview

The syslog module is able to send system, traffic, and session messages to a specified syslog server. In order to capture all new connections, the session filter can be enabled. This will log each new inbound session to provide detailed remote reporting.

System Filters: Firewall logs, WAN Data, Application Usage Logs, SLA Alert Logs, System Alerts / Updates, ALL New Session Traffic.

Email Alerts

With email alerts an administrator can be notified whenever an alert occurs or just when a critical network issue occurs. Up to 10,000 individual email alerts can be configured, and each can have separate alert levels.

Send emails for network outages, security alerts, security reports, SLA reports, web filtering reports, virtual technician reports, shaping statistic reports, WAN usage reports, and application usage reports.
