Upload and Compare Agents for versiondog

Carry out upload and compares for certain devices using versiondog Agents for
better performance and added compatibility.

When is it Recommended to use versiondog Agents?

  • If you want to access and archive the HMI Runtimes during operation, you require one agent per HMI station.

  • In situations where additional software is required to archive and/or compare a device (e.g. the development environment of a device), we recommend using versiondog Agents in these circumstances:

  • If you cannot install certain software on your versiondog server or client.

  • If you use different versions of the software at the same time but cannot install them on the same system (e.g. because it is not possible to install multiple versions of the software on the same system).

  • In some situations where there are prerequisites for upload or for compare like SQL database servers, secure environments, firewall rules, etc.

  • Agents enable you to carry out processes on an external system or server. This is especially useful when requisite editor resources are not available on the local client system. This helps reduce license costs that come with the installing an editor on each individual computer.

  • On certain devices, it is only possible to carry out one action (archiving/comparison) at a time for technical reasons. You can use agents to distribute actions across several systems to increase performance.

  • If you need to access or perform an action on a system, but cannot access this system via the network, you can install an agent on the system directly (this will allow you to access the system’s resources).

  • If communication with a BUS system (MPI, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, Modbus etc.) is not possible for the server (because the server has no interface card) you can install an agent on the system on which a BUS interface is installed. This will allow versiondog to communicate with the BUS.
