The status of all SCB ATMs is monitored by the “Sparrow” kit which logs all the status changes. From the desktop, support engineers can monitor the ATMs with the telnet application, ANZIOLITE or PUTTY. But it’s not viable to look at the monitor all the time and report to the person assigned for a particular ATM. SMS/Email Based ATM Monitoring System does this job. This system sends an instant SMS/Email describing the ATM status to the concerned person.
This system doesn’t access “Sparrow” directly. It requires no login information from the “Sparrow”. Rather, it reads data from an open ANZIOLITE/PUTTY client screen, logs in a separate database and sends SMS/Email to the concerned persons. On a set interval, it captures the screen data, logs the status into the database and sends SMS/Email.
