File Processor Agent – Processors

 

Setting

Type

Description

processors

String

The processors/file types to use (e.g., HOBO, In-Situ-5, Lorentz).

 

Each processor watches a folder, detects file changes in that folder, and adds the file data into the database. For example, the processor's settings define:

how to read a file,

what a file's header looks like, and

the logger (DT_LOGGER.LOGGER_CODE) and series (DT_LOGGER_SERIES.SERIES_NAME, UNIT, FUNCTION) to which to add the datum.

 

The agent supports the following generic processors/file types:

AreaRAE (gas detection monitor)

Diver (data loggers)

E-BAM (Met One Instruments E-BAM)

Geokon (model 4500 standard piezometer)

HOBO (HOBO TidbiT data loggers)

Horiba (U-50 series multiparameter water quality meter)

In-Situ-4, In-Situ-5 (Win-Situ versions 4 and 5)

LoggerDatum (LoggerCode, SeriesName, DatumUtcDate, DatumValue, and DatumQualifier columns)

Lorentz (solar powered pumps)

QED (QED MP20 flow cell)

RST-DT2011, RST-DT2055 (single and multi channel loggers)

Solinst (Barologger and Levelogger); limited functionality, see notes in Solinst example.

TOA5

 

Note: The Campbell Scientific LoggerNet Agent can also be used to load data from Campbell Scientific LoggerNet logger ('TOA5') files. It has some additional functionality (e.g., it adds DT_EQUIPMENT rows) and can watch individual files, in addition to folders.

 

YSI-6 (6-series), YSI-EXO, YSI-ProPlus

 

Notes:

Additional processors can be added to the *.config file. If the available file settings can be used to read their files. Please contact support@earthsoft.com for help.

Each processor uses system resources to watch a folder. Thus, only add the processors needed to conserve system resources.

 

The agent also supports the following custom processor/file type:

CNL (004 and 014); does not support all settings, see CNL example for a list of settings that it supports.
