Thanks to everyone who attended the CygNet Designer webinar. If you were unable to make the live webinar, fear not, it was recorded and is now available for you to view at your leisure.

The CygNet Designer webinar introduced and discussed the concept of a site data model and its importance in supporting site health and consistency.  It covered how to build a Blueprint, how to use that Blueprint as a model for checking your existing site, and how to create new facilities and points that adhere to your site Blueprint

A look at redundancy for the 8.5 release

November 17, 2016 / 0 comments / in General  / by CygNet Blog Admin

Just 10 months ago we published an article looking for feedback on our plan to make CygNet redundant.  We got lots of feedback (thank you!) and have been working hard ever since to lay the groundwork for a top notch feature.  As expected, we had to cut lots of scope and weren’t able to do it all in this release, but I’m confident that what we completed will get you to parity (or very close) with the scripted solution many of you are currently using.  We will continue working in the next release to deliver even more in 2017, but I wanted to take a moment to describe what you can expect in the coming 8.5 release.

How do you handle big, time consuming, scripted jobs in the HyperPoint Scripting Service?  When an operation consumes the single-threaded HSS process for longer than desired, other scripts may not execute in a timely fashion.

Do you want to utilize custom .NET assemblies from within CygNet’s VBScript environment?

What if you could do both, right now, from the HSS, with a few simple lines of script?

Good news.  You can!


Is your DDS Audit trail telling you everything it can?

What was the last Data group added to a remote device?  Who edited the data element mapping inside a specific data group, and what was it set to before they changed it?

One of the challenges with administrating a CygNet site can be being aware of the changes made to device configurations, and who made them.


Do you have a large production VHS? Don’t fall into the allocation predicament!

June 28, 2016 / 0 comments / in General Support  / by Jacob Allred

If your production database is larger than 500 Gb, I’d like to take a moment to talk about a potential ticking time bomb that might be present in your production environment so that you have the tools necessary to disarm it before it detonates.

Extreme file fragmentation + Small disk allocation size = Disaster

The plan to make CygNet truly redundant

January 21, 2016 / 2 comments / in General  / by CygNet Blog Admin

As many of you are well aware, CygNet does not have a great solution for productized failover.  You can replicate CygNet data.  You can setup a clustering environment to detect failures.  You can write scripts to swap config files in order to change a services role.  I’ve talked to many of you over the last month or two and for those who do have a working solution, it took a lot of work to setup, and takes a lot of work to maintain.

For those of you who are in this boat, or are afraid to get into the boat, I’m happy to announce that we have a team assembled and are working to vastly improve this process!
