DEVELOPING A SERVER ROOM ENVIRONMENT MONITORING SYSTEM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL ENABLED SENSORS

Ahmed Kijazi

Abstract


Environmental condition monitoring is very important for efficient operation of electronic components and devices. Server rooms and Data centers typically house thousands of dollars’ worth of electrical and computing equipment, often storing proprietary data, customer accounts, or other sources of valuable information that represents the lifeblood of the business . The aim of this paper is to explain how to develop an environment monitoring system using Internet protocol (IP) enabled sensors, for detecting temperature, humidity, water and fire in the Server rooms and Data Centers in order to protect important computing and other electronic devices which are sensitive to environmental condition changes. This is a system which is sensitive to environmental condition changes and takes necessary actions to protect monitored devices, thus ensuring safety and durability of the devices and contributes to the network availability. In this paper IP enabled sensor, Java programming language for client and server programming, SQL Server for storing collected sensor values readings, SMS gateway software for sending alert messages to network administrator and a sample configured network have been used. Additionally, server room environmental monitoring system is a working system, which was tested in a lab environment, and it seems to work fine.
