    your pc only has 512mb ram. Have you checked the free ram once after Mango has started? I can't imagine there will be much free ram left after the OS and Mango have been loaded.
    The MangoGT hardware spec has at least 1GB Ram.
    Just a thought.

    I can not help with you about the error code.
    but is the Mango on the same LAN as the PLC? Or are you trying to poll data from a remote site into the Mango?

    Yes, you need to create a Modbus tcp/ip data source and points for these to work.

    i notice you have 'http(s)' selected, can it be 'http' instead? also, you need to change the modbus port setting inside mango from '502' to '1883' as shown in your screenshot.
    below is where the port setting is in mango.

    hope that helps.

    I really like the hierarchy feature. It makes things much easier to navigate compared to pure GUI. It reduces the need to program navigational HTML pages. Instead, individual graph pages can be assigned to the hierarchy so user can go to a graph directly.
    I know the existing hierarchy only allows data points. I hope the new version will allow us to built a navigation tree from different components inside the Mango Automation software.

    thanks!

    Don't the meta data points count against the licensed points allowance? If they do, we basically pay twice for the same point. Am I wrong on this?

    try 40.6.
    sometimes 3rd party device only accept value change equal or greater than 0.5.

    I want to give you a comparison from the point of view of Building Automation Systems (BAS) that will have to deal with such massive amount of points.
    Generally, the BAS will have network controller which is similar to a MangoES that polls various devices then either do something with them or perform data-sharing between network controllers.
    To accommodate 32000 points and maintain acceptable performance, 2000 physical/software points from all these devices is generally the limit i will put on each network controller.
    So, i will need at least 16 network controllers. So that will be 16 CPUs (or cores) (one per network controllers, they could be ARM or similar, keep in mind, these network controllers CPU are much slower than a mid-range desktop CUP). Each network controller may have 2GB RAM, so there will be 32 GB RAM required.
    In addition, in system this big, there will be a separate Server-Class PC to serve up all the webpages to the end-users. This server-class PC will at least have 8-core and 16GB RAM. All up, there are at least 24 cores CPUs and 48GB RAM required to run this system.
    Looking at your server spec, it is under-powered.

    I hope the above makes sense.

    Hi, Joel
    can you elaborate how to enable/enter 'safe mode'?
    thanks.
