I’ve had a request to log network status from FactorySQL to be used in FactoryPMI reports. Sounds like a reasonable request. Realtime status is totally taken care of with the SQLTags component overlay system. Historical network status?
My gut feeling is: use Microsoft/3rd party tools. I know of a lot of these for realtime status, but few that record historical uptime to a database.
My idea is to log data based changes of the OPC quality code of the PLC.
Any ideas on the best way to do accomplish this task?
