Runtime Control

The Service must be in Runtime mode in order to process values for trending, alarming, data logging, recipe execution, report generation, data transfer, and communications.  You can Start and Stop Runtime from any of the Service configuration windows.

To Start Runtime select the Start Runtime Button in any Service modification window of the OPC Systems Configuration application or from the OPC Systems Service Control application.

 

To Stop Runtime select the Stop Runtime Button in any Service modification window of the OPC Systems Configuration application or from the OPC Systems Service Control application.

You can make add, delete or make modifications to all configurations while the Service is in Runtime mode.  Tag configurations files can only be loaded when not in Runtime, but Tag configuration files can be saved during Runtime.  All other modifications can be done while in Runtime if desired. 

Make certain to save the modifications if you desire the changes to be retentive for the next time the Service is started.
