I have a setup where a process logs the current of the outlet of a power distribution unit (it's a Schleifenbauer PDU and a gateway). It polls continuously the values and writes them to a file with the corresponding time stamps.
Now I want to launch different algorithms in a second machine (connected to the mentioned outlet) so I can measure the power consumption.
Since I have to write down the moments when the processes start and end, what would be a way to communicate these events with the SNMP manager, running in the first machine?
Sorry if the question is too naïf, and thanks for any help.
note: I am working with Linux in both machines.
