This blog is intended for the FMS service operator to gain understanding of the relationship between the FMS service and the SQL Server FMS database.
When working with the FMS service and the SQL Server database connection it is important to note that each task will run in an executable thread within the executing multi-threaded FMS Service. When data is required from the database, each thread will initiate a unique session with the database to read/write the specific data. It is possible, for some long running task with minimal to no activity, for the database to close the session as part of the database service manager optimization processing. The FMS service will detect this state and cause the session to re-open when the FMS Service requires database access.
We are pleased to announce the release of CygNet version 9.0.
This release includes the first release Canvas, the new HMI development tool. Canvas has a companion application, Canvas View, that is read-only. The CygNet blog contains webinars to introduce you to the features of Canvas. Of course, we will continue to add features and tools to Canvas in subsequent releases. And don’t forget that you can make your own custom controls for Canvas. One question that we’ve been asked a lot is will Canvas be able to show a CygNet Studio screen and the answer is yes, there is a control for that! We do realize that CygNet Studio and Vision will continued to be used for quite some time we’ve made enhancements and provided fixes for it as well.
