WinCC Long-term archive


Thread Starter

I configured long-term and short-term archive in WinCC. Now the short-term archive are displayed but Long-term archives are NOT displayed. Can anyone give exact settings how to display long-term archives? If necessary, short-term archives can be removed because I only want long-term archives.

Long term archives require an archive server, this is a seperate server! Short term archives are locally stored in the WinCC database. We are currently using short term archives for storing up to 2000 tags/minute for one year (about 50 Gbytes). If you have a requirement for keeping more data for a longer time with backup to CD, DVD or tape then you should invest in either a storage-plus solution (Backing up of short term archive data) or a real archive server.
