CygNet Webinar – Automatic Service Recovery and Broadcast

July 21, 2017 / 0 comments / in General  / by Luke Williams

How do you configure a service to automatically failover with Redundancy?  How do you alert all of your clients to a planned failover, or let them know about upcoming maintenance?

Before version 8.5.1 you’d be hard pressed to come up with a simple answer.

In version 8.5.1 we have a simple answer to both.

Automatic Service Recovery, and CygNet Broadcast!


Automatic failover is here!

July 18, 2017 / 0 comments / in General  / by Peter Franklin

We’ve been hard at work here to provide you with the redundancy features that you’ve been wanting, and we’re happy to announce that in the new 8.5.1 release we have added support for automatic failover. You no longer need to manually initiate a failover when a catastrophe occurs. If this sounds interesting to you, read on!

Service Logging – Extended Mode Webinar Summary

June 21, 2017 / 0 comments / in General  / by Luke Williams

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could retain service log information in a single file even after service restarts?  We think so too!

The Extended service logging configuration mode was added in v8.5 and we covered the feature, and the changes it brings, in our June webinar.

June 15, 2017 / 0 comments / in General  / by Luke Williams

Would you like to have additional log file retention options?

In CygNet version 8.5 a new service logging mode, Extended, has been added that provides a new collection of logging options that might just change the way you think about historical service log file retention.

This month we will explain the newly added, Extended Mode, available as a new configuration option in each service’s config file.


8.5.1 Preview: CygNet Broadcast

June 06, 2017 / 0 comments / in API General  / by Walter Goodwater

Have you ever needed to send a message out to all your CygNet Studio users? Maybe you need to let everyone know about some planned (or unplanned…) server downtime. Or maybe you want to inform everyone about a change to a screen, field asset, or company policy. Or maybe you noticed free cake in the break room and you’re feeling generous. Sure, you could write an email, but does everyone in the control room have Outlook open? If only there was a way to send a message to all open Studio and Vision clients in your site…

This year at the Weatherford Enterprise Software Conference, our pre-conference training covered building custom controls for Canvas.  We wanted to make sure that this information was available for everyone, and could be reviewed on-demand.  Blake and I recorded a version of the session offline for you to watch and review at your convenience.  The video and asset files are now ready and included in this post!


A script to quickly configure a host for redundancy

May 22, 2017 / 0 comments / in General  / by CygNet Blog Admin

In preparation for WESC, I had to configure four identical CygNet hosts for redundancy.  Doing the same thing four times didn’t sound like a lot of fun so I decided to write a powershell script!  This is in no way supported or official, but it might help some of you out whenever you find yourself needing to spin up a new CygNet server or configure an existing one for redundancy.  If starting from scratch, you will need to install CygNet via the setup program to get the baseline, and then this script will configure the server to be redundant.  Specifically it will create multiple ARS/RSM service pairs that are properly configured.  For those of you not doing redundancy, you can tweak it to mass modify your config files with specific values or add nonstandard services to your site.
