To keep a persistent copy of cached device data,
you can save the I/O Server's cache to disk. For every
[IOServer]SavePeriod, the data is saved to s,
one for each cached device.
Saving the data to disk will, in most circumstances, allow you to shut down and restart the I/O Server without having to contact each I/O Device again to get its current values. Instead, you can read the values from the device's persistence cacheCache data saved to a computer hard disk that allows an I/O server to be shut down and restarted without having to re-dial each I/O device to get its current values. This cache consists of all the I/O device's tag values..
Note: When read-through caching is enabled
for a remote or scheduled I/O Device, the persistence cache for
that device is saved to disk when the active I/O Server disconnects
from the device. This occurs regardless of the value set in
[IOServer]SavePeriod. You can
enable read-through caching by setting the parameter
