About Dynamic Graphic Replay

Dynamic Graphical Replay (DGR) is a powerful tool to help you, a system administrator, troubleshoot problems that have occurred in your processes.

Configuration for DGR use.

DGR operation.


DGR enables you to review and diagnose what conditions may have led to an event of interest. Because the DGR automates reviewing either Database Logger or Proficy Historian logged data you can quickly and precisely pinpoint when and by how much one or more points deviated from the norm.

Using the DGR, you can:

View logged point data history with your project’s CimView screens by.

Viewing a snapshot of point values on the screen at a specific point in time.

Replaying point changes complete with CimView animations.

Replay speed can be up to a maximum of 10 times faster than real-time and a down to a minimum speed of 1/100 real-time.

Search logged data to locate when a point value meets a specified condition.

A Start Search functionality sets the playback start time to the time of a corresponding condition, which you specify, and a Stop Search functionality pauses playback each time the condition is met.

The DGR is local to the Viewer or Server on which it is running. When you switch to DGR mode all of the local CimView point data switches to DGR mode. As a result, your system can continue displaying live data on one viewer while it displays DGR time on another.


Important: DGR does not run in Demo mode.
