In most industrial control networks, reliability is critical. Even a brief network outage can become more than an annoyance as production could be disrupted. By monitoring and analyzing diagnostic data, network instabilities can be identified and addressed before causing any real problems. WeConfig provides important diagnostics data in a simple and visual format. Quick and easy access to network details is crucial in maintaining reliable networks.
The network topology map in WeConfig gives an immediate visual status overview. An unavailable device or link is highlighted and the location of a problem will be visible instantly. WeConfig provides diagnostic data that makes it easy to perform in depth troubleshooting and pinpoint the source of a problem.
The video shows how simple a FRNT ring topology is created and how WeConfig displays the network topology.
Not only will the Tech Support button extract all log and configuration files, a snapshot of the device status is also produced. The status information includes the forwarding database, active connections, RMON counters, memory status, device temperature, physical port status among many other things. This can save an incredible amount of time when troubleshooting.
