Configuring amatps

The LayGO AMATPS collector for the PXS is amatps. The PXS should configured to run amatps as the default application. To define this, at the RedBoot prompt enter:

RedBoot> default
Default application: hdlcsrv
RedBoot> default amatps
Default application: amatps

Now amatps will automatically run when the RedBoot timeout expires.

amatps needs the IP address of the file server running Remote File Server to which it should send the files it donwloads from the switch. To set the file server, use the RedBoot ftp command. For instance, if the IP address of the remote file server is, enter:

RedBoot> ftp
FTP Server:

You should also enable remote logging by setting the address of a server running the remote log server. For instance, if the IP address of the remote log server is also, enter:

RedBoot> log
Log Server:
RedBoot> logging enable
Logging: enabled
