A CIMPLICITY project has two layers of programs:
The User Application layer consists of the following programs:
These programs are started by user request and remain running until the user exits them.
The Resident Process layer consists of a set of programs that are started when you start your CIMPLICITY project, and that remain running until your CIMPLICITY project is shut down.
If you are on a Server, the Resident Process layer includes such programs as the:
Point Data Logger and,
Alarm Management Resident Process.
If you are on a Viewer, the only process running in the Resident Process layer is the Router.
