Keeping a persistent record of the data

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 cache.

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 [Dial]ReadThroughCache.
