Data Loading

Most EQuIS Live Data Collection Agents automatically create the necessary logger and series data in DT_LOGGER and DT_LOGGER_SERIES, respectively, when loggers are setup through their interface or accompanying widget. It may occasionally be necessary for the user to manually place logger and series data into EQuIS.

  

Note: A ‘logger’ is the physical data logger. A ‘logger series’ refers to the measurement parameters (e.g., air pressure or temperature).
