We have a gap in Ignition resources and I'm trying to troubleshoot something that may be trivial to some of you.
There is a Vision client running on our warehouse "shipping monitor" displaying a somewhat simple DataTable. This hasn't refreshed since July 10th, but it should be refreshing daily. When I open the project in the Ignition Designer, data from the proper date (July 18) loads in as expected. I'm including screenshots on this post (with most data censored).
I see this as a good way to get my feet wet in our Ignition system as it seems relatively simple to solve, but I want to make sure I go about it the right way.
- My first thought is to simply restart the Vision client. It could just be frozen, or the connection to our Ignition server may be broken. I cannot say what the root cause is at this point. Like I said, before trying anything, I want to ensure I am thinking about things the right way...
- If that doesn't work, I would want to look at how the DataTable is being driven - but I don't yet know how or where to do this (is there a certain panel I should open and look at?). The timer is the only other object in this root container so that could be suspect as well. Tips here would be appreciated!
- If I get this working again, how can I prevent this from happening again? What sorts of things could I look into doing? I understand this depends on what the root cause is in the first place...
