Dicom C-Echo



I would like to know if PRTG c-echo adds any record to the HL7 server when doing the ping/echo. Thank you.

Sorry for the late response here. I needed to consult our SME for the DICOMM sensors.

Here is his response.

DICOM C-ECHO does not create any records beside of Log-Entries on the device.

HL7 Sensor could create records depending what message the customer places in the sensor.

So if he add "Create Record" calls like HL7 ADT-04 or ORM-01 then he might add records if they are not flaged with the debug header. When using ADT-A08 for example he can update "dummy" records to check everything works fine.

Does this make sense?
