Configuration UpdateΒΆ

The foglamp-notify-config plugin is designed to allow a notification to alter the configuration of one of the configuration items within the local FogLAMP.

The plugin can be used to trigger changes to the way data is collected, for example by altering the readingsPerSec item in a south server Advanced category. It is not limited to this however and could equally be used to effect some configuration of a filter, for example to change a scale factor or threshold. It may also change configuration of notification rule or delivery plugins.
