Log Errors

Log all failures to a specified text file. The file will have appended to the file name the year, month, day, and hour to easily sort error logs at the time they occurred.  Specify the file path to create the error logs relative to the OAS Service application. The default will be the Log directory in the installation directory of Open Automation Software.

No error file will be created if there are no errors.

Log Transactions

Log all transactions to a specified text file. The file will have appended to the file name the year, month, day, and hour to easily sort error logs at the time they occurred.  Specify the file path to create the transaction logs relative to the OAS Service application. The default will be the Log directory in the installation directory of Open Automation Software.

Transaction logs should only be used for troubleshooting to find the source of a problem along with technical support for an OAS service center. Because the information logged is extensive it is not recommended to leave this enable for long periods as the text files will consume a large amount of disk space.

Auto Runtime On Service Start

To automatically have the OAS Service start in Runtime mode when the service starts enable this option.

OPC Server Watchdog Rate

The number of Seconds the OAS Service will expect data from each OPC Server.  If the OPC Server does not have a data change within this period the OAS Service will disconnect from the OPC Server and reconnect to try and re-establish the connection.  Set this value to 0 to disable the OPC Server Watchdog feature.

Use TimeStamp from OPC Servers

Enable this property to have all trend, alarm, and data logging timestamps to come from the OPC Servers instead of the local CPU clock.  The default of the property is True.
