Basic Concept of System
The System container is a configuration center of a device; it includes information about the operating system and settings. It provides a hardware characteristic of the device, informing about the OS version, CPU performance, IP address, port number, or number of inputs and outputs.
The System container is a starting point to work with the device–it is a place to configure the device and connect it to the network. One of the most useful features of the System container is a possibility to set a unique IP address of the device.
In further operations it provides tools for monitoring and troubleshooting such as the Logs component, which provides an adjustable register of events taking place during the operation of the device. The System container includes a tree of components providing categorized information about the device and its settings.
Remember - No Licensed Elements in the System Container
The System container does not include any elements subject to licensing in the nano EDGE ENGINE devices. Only Data Points in the Applications container are subject to license:
The license for the new generation of iSMA CONTROLLI controllers driven by the nano EDGE ENGINE is constructed against the number of Data Points: each device based on the nano EDGE ENGINE is granted a specified number of license points (Data Points in this case), which can be used within applications. Therefore, the licensing system is only of quantitative, not functional, character–only the real number of Data Points in applications is taken into account, regardless of how many communication protocols are used to expose them, or how many network points are controlled. With the nano EDGE ENGINE-generation devices it is possible to create as big an application (or applications) as the number of licensed Data Points. No elements in the Networks, Services, or System containers are subject to license limitations, other than Data Points in the Applications container.
Note: In order to check the number of license points, please refer to the License in the device.
