Mango M2M features
Mango is a data logging, control, and monitoring system all in one featuring a browser-based
interface. Yet, on an 800MHz linux box with 500MB RAM Mango can host hundreds of data points
collected from multiple data sources using multiple protocols, even while using its embedded
database. When more powerful equipment is used, and MySQL is configured, Mango can support thousands
or tens of thousands of points on a single instance.
- Multiple protocol
Mango can receive data from any device for which there is a protocol driver. Currently supported
protocols include BACnet I/P, Modbus (ASCII, RTU, TCP, and UDP), OPC DA, 1-wire, SNMP, SQL, HTTP,
POP3, NMEA 0183, MBus, DNP3, OpenV, webcams, vmstat, and many proprietary protocols developed by or
for hardware vendors. Mango also supports a "virtual" data source that can generate data for
benchmarking or testing purposes. More protocols are being added regularly.
- Multiple database
Mango ships with the Derby embedded database so that you don't have to have one of your own. But,
Mango can also use MySQL for power users who need performance.
- Meta points
most popular scripting language in the world, meta points allow for powerful combinations of point
values as well as historical point information.
- User-defined events
Tell Mango what events you are interested in. Users can define unlimited event criteria on points to
detect conditions such as high and low limits, value changes, state change counts, and run-times.
Export your configuration to a text file. Save this file for backup and recovery, or use it to import
into other instances of Mango to make identical copies. Or, use the file to manage very large
- Support for Internet Explorer 7, FireFox, and Chrome
Full support for the most popular browsers in the world.
- Event handling
Any events that occur, either system or user defined, can be handled arbitrarily using user-defined
event handlers. These handlers can send emails and escalations to mailing lists, or set values in
Your data resides where you install Mango, so you are in control. User permissions are defined by
system administrators, and all communications with Mango can be secured with SSL (Secure Socket
Layer), ensuring the privacy of your information.
- Data logging
Each point can be configured with its own data logging and log purging characteristics. Logging
schedules can be made to be independent of reading schedules.
Create and schedule reports for online viewing or email. Download data in CSV format for quick upload
into spreadsheets or other data analysis programs.
- Data publishing
Forward information gathered by Mango to other systems in your M2M architecture in on-event fashion
for near real-time updating.
- Quick charts and set points
Access and control is quick and up to date with Mango's roll-over charts and point set controls. The
use of Ajax technology ensures that all of the information displayed is recent and relevent.
- Watch lists
Create your own custom list of points that you want to watch. Easily add and remove points from the
list to keep an eye on particular point values and alarms. Create named watch lists with your
favourite groups of points. Instantly see multi-point graphs of the points on your list.
- Point heirarchies
Create your own arbitrary hierarchies of points and point folders to organize your information the
way you want to see it.
- Graphical views
Create graphical representations of points upon your own backgrounds with drag and drop
functionality. All roll-over charts controls and charts work the same in graphics as they do
- Point details
View point detail information including current value, detailed tabular and graphical charts, alarms,
event detectors, and user permissions. Set point controls are also available.
- Active alarms list
All pages in the application include an indicator of the highest active alarm level. Use it to link
to the active alarms list where you can see all active alarms at a glance. Read and add comments, and
link to point details pages where actions can be taken
- User memos
Users can comment on events and points so that valuable knowledge is not lost. Event comments are
sent with email notifications so that all users are kept up to date on system status.
- Event scheduling
Define events based upon time schedules. Events raised by schedules have access to all of the
handling functionality that other events types have.
- Audit trail
Changes to all information processing objects cause audit events to be raised, including new objects,
changes, and deletions. These events pass through the event management system so that all users can
independently acknowledge the event.
- Automatic software updates
Be notified when new versions of Mango are available. Simply copy the new Mango version into your
installation directory and all of your data will be updated automatically.
- I18N (internationalization)
Mango is fully internationalizable. New languages can be supported simply by translating the label
file (and contextual documentation files). Currently translated languages are English, German,
Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, and Finnish.
- Pluggable image set library
- Easily plug your own graphics library just by copying your images over.
- Remote graphical views
- Create portlets on your website that remotely display the views you create in Mango.
- Alarm sounds
- Hear sounds when alarms are raised in Mango.
