CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- Software Toolbox, a leading supplier of industrial automation software, today released OmniServer Version 2.8, the latest upgrade to its universal data acquisition software featuring support for CSV import and export functions and several user interface enhancements. OmniServer enables industrial communications with non-standard device types such as barcode readers, weight scales, RFID systems, sensors, and many other devices without an off-the-shelf driver solution.
Support has been added in OmniServer V2.8 for CSV import and export of OmniServer topics, devices and items in OmniServer protocols. This feature aids in greater flexibility when configuring OmniServer for large scale projects with larger numbers of items and/or devices for communication. Previously, it was required to configure each topic, device and item within the configuration. Import of objects is far more efficient when large numbers of these objects are required for a project. This import and export capability also makes it possible to share objects between OmniServer configurations and protocols.
"One of the most common pain points for an OmniServer user has been when they have a large project and need to configure large quantities of items in their protocols or have large numbers of devices," said Kevin Rutherford, OmniServer product manager at Software Toolbox. "Import and export via CSV allows such users to add large numbers of objects easily by configuring them in Excel and then importing the file into OmniServer. Objects can also be moved between protocols and other installations of OmniServer. This makes the configuration process less cumbersome and more efficient, allowing the user to focus on other aspects of the configuration and save time and money."
Additional OmniServer Version 2.8 enhancements include improved usability by allowing users to import protocols and configuration through the OmniServer configuration interface. Users can also now start and stop the OmniServer polling runtime from the configuration interface, as well as several other interface and usability enhancements. Upgrade paths are available for current users who want to take advantage of the new features and benefits of OmniServer Version 2.8.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
