The basis of the LOGIPIX System is an SQL server, which stores all the data of the system in a database. It manages the database and serves the server and client applications. Stepping one layer further up, different modules of the Control Center server use the services of the database server. Segmentation of the Control Center server provides clear management and usage for each module.
SEGMENTED SERVER APPLICATIONS
Your last system configuration is always kept in safe servers. LOGIPIX Client applications store their data in a database file. This file contains all information related to the system. The Firebird Administrator server performs daily database backup, which ensures recovery in case of database damage.
Handling authority levels
The Authentication server identifies the system users via a centralized user database, and also handles LOGIPIX server and client application authority, based on client keys.
Automatic functions for greater comfort
The application server performs automatic tasks, such as triggering automatic database backup and performing automatic imports and exports for external systems. It is possible to send prepared exports automatically by e-mail.
Every event leaves a trace
LOGIPIX IP-based devices create logs of every event. The role of the log server is to periodically query and process log data from the devices. The period of the query can be adjusted. This module also performs the synchronization of the system time and the controller time. In case of a successful log query, logs will be deleted from the devices and queried data will be saved.
Once system configuration is ready, it must be uploaded
The task of the configuration server is to create and upload a configuration file based on the database and to verify the uploaded device configuration. Configuration upload can be performed manually or automatically every day.
Multiple Control Center Clients create no additional load on the network
The Video Proxy Server application can be used in a system together with our standard multi-megapixel cameras to optimize network bandwidth. Thus it allows the running of multiple Control Center Clients simultaneously in a single system, without overloading the network. A system which contains our leading edge LOGIPIX ONE cameras is a different matter due to the enormous amounts of data that they generate. In this case the server application is not enough, and a dedicated hardware must fill the role of the video proxy.
Managing video downloads
Automatic video downloads may increasingly facilitate system management, and can also help optimize network bandwidth by timing the process smartly. This is exactly the role filled by the video download manager server.
Guiding the route of all events
The online event manager server divides the events between client applications. Once it is installed, devices send the events only to the event manager server, which then transmits them to the client applications.
Knowing employees' work time
The work time server performs automatic or manual work time calculation based on the entry and exit data in the LOGIPIX Access Control System. All access data belonging to the controllers should be processed by the log server for work time calculation.
