WIN-911 Feature Requests

Monitor server communications to remote modules for distributed installations

In a distributed installation, where WIN911 resides on a server but the SCADA is on a remote server, there is not a feature in the software that will monitor communication between the WIN911 server and the remote WIN911-SCADA module. If communications are lost no notifications go out, the only way this is detected is if someone realizes that SCADA alarms are active that should have sent notifications. This has happened with the most recent installation of WIN911 I have done using the iFix SCADA software.

    We haven't worked notifications into our design yet. The problem with using existing notification policies is that if the system is experiencing failures, not only with the data source modules, is that you wouldn't receive a notification. When we get to notifications, it may be best to use an independent notification method. When we get further along down the road, I'll share more details.

    Steven would it also generate a notification that would go out per a configured notification policy?

    Hello Aaron,

    We're currently working on this feature and calling it the Status module. This module will allow you to view the status of each WIN-911 module from a new workspace in WIN-911 Workspace.

    We plan to use the Status module with an automatic failover module to automate failover to a secondary WIN-911 system.

    I don't have a release date, but it should be available by the end of the year.
