These parameters can be used to gather runtime information about your CitectSCADA system.Before making adjustments to these parameters you need to understand the concepts and processes described in the Monitoring and Debugging Runtime chapter in the CitectSCADAhelp.
Similarly, the chapter on Communicating with I/O Devices includes a section on Troubleshooting Device Communications that explains how to log drivers.
To access main help, select Citect Help Topics from the Help menu in Citect Explorer or Project Editor. You can then search for the topics mentioned above.
