The following ruleset is designed to monitor the signal strength of the Iridium satellite modem and will power cycle the modem if it becomes unresponsive.

In order for the powercycle portion of the ruleset to work, the Local Manager must have a power controller installed and an outlet mapped for the modem. You will then need to paste the following into the CLI on the system resource.

config rule iridiumErrorMessage
