TOP Server Real-Time Scheduler Plug-In




The TOP Server Real-Time Scheduler Plug-in is used in conjunction with any other TOP Server driver that is collecting data from devices or other data servers and allows precision control over the polling frequency for data requests to those drivers.


This is critical in SCADA-heavy industries, like Oil & Gas and Water/Wastewater, where communication bandwidth can be limited or time-limited polling opportunities dictate the need for tight control of polling.


The Scheduler Plug-In is used to define a schedule and a collection of devices and tags to poll on that schedule.  The Scheduler Plug-in overrides the alternative default behavior of client-driven polling frequencies TOP Server users are familiar with.


The Scheduler Plug-in provides the ultimate flexible control for precision-tuning when and how frequently a driver is communicating with your devices, giving you full control over how much bandwidth is being use on your telemetry network.

Real-Time Scheduler Plug-In Features:


  • Configurable priorities between different schedules in the event of a conflict
  • Unlimited recurrences and exceptions per schedule
  • Recurrences configurable as time intervals or specific time recurring daily
  • Exceptions configurable as specific time periods or specific days of the week
  • Supports static device tags or device address references
  • Device Wizard for quickly and easily adding identical sets of tags for multiple devices
  • CSV Import/Export
  • Real-Time Override mode configurable by device for overriding scheduled polling frequency temporarily
  • Special system tags for triggering on-demand polls, enabling/disabling a schedule and for monitoring schedule status from a client application
