The Intrusion Manager role monitors and controls intrusion detection units. It listens to the events reported by the units, provides live reports to Security Center, and logs the events in a database for future reporting.
Multiple instances of this role can be created on the system.
Limitations of Intrusion Manager roles
For purposes of failover, the Intrusion Manager can be assigned to more than one server. However, the Intrusion Manager only supports failover when the intrusion panels are connected via IP. Failover is not supported if your intrusion panel is directly connected to your server via serial port, failover is not supported.
