Proficy Historian Migration


Historian migration configuration steps

The Proficy Historian Migration utility migrates all or selected data from the previously used log database, e.g. CIMPLICITY SQL, to Historian.

Historian Migration Configuration Steps

Migration is straightforward.

When you open the Historian Migration tool, you open a migration session. You specify what data you want migrated. When the data is migrated and you close the Historian Migration tool, the migration session is ended. If all of the data you want to migrate has been migrated you may not use the tool again. If there is more data to migrate, you can simply, re-open the tool, select your criteria and migrate your selection.

Note: The previously used database will not be removed after migration.
