Highlight Feature: Data Streams

  • Within the Data Streams page, you can view a list of all your data streams as well as create, edit, and delete them. Select a data stream from your list and view a chart of that data stream's data points, based on several options and using several pre-defined time periods, or simply view the raw data associated with a data stream.
  • Digi Remote Manager data streams store and access time-series data. Virtually any type of data can be stored and used to create real-time charts to visualize and monitor data points that are important to your network. Data streams are fully searchable, and the data can also be rolled up into time interval summaries.
