    I'm just following up to let anyone that falls on this thread to know that I did find my CuBox-i4 Pro with 2GB and loaded Debian 7 with Java 8 and loaded mango. The system has only a few data points and has kept about 1.3 GB of memory free. I would say this is very workable for a small system with not too many users. Scrap RPi and find a 2GB board.

    little late to the response, but I would recommend that you consider not using RPi, but instead get a board with 2-4 GB of memory. There are quite a few now, below is a list from wikipedia to browse. I have a CuBox-i4 Pro with 2GB laying around somewhere that I will try once I find it. If that doesn't work I will be buying a 4GB board. You can get them in the $60-100 range. One I am interested in is the Libre Computer for pricing reasons. To me time is worth more than a few bucks, so just take the memory issue out of the picture.

    It's good to know that Mango runs at all on the RPi, so thanks for sharing.

    Phil,

    Awesome, Thanks! I solved the immediate issue by using the database data source, but I did want to understand how the text file data source worked, so thanks for the import code, I will give it a look.

    I am trying to use the ASCII File reader and I am not having any luck. I can get it to work on ScadaBR, but Mango has a different scheme of extracting the data. I have searched this forum and looked through the documentation, but I cannot find any example that helps better explain the Point indentifier and Value fields of the point configuration.

    I am a long time user of the Original Mango and ScadaBR and I am in the process of creating a Demo for a commercial opportunity. If anyone could guide me to a more detailed explanation or example of this data source, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have watched this project on and off for a few years and recently came back to take a look and see it is being discontinued.

    Does anyone know the status if there are any transfer plans?

    I would hate to see such a great project as this be discontinued. :cry:

    I looked around the forum here, but did not find much in the way of an answer, so thought I would ask. If there is a post already please inform me.

    Thanks

    WOW!!!! Long time since I've been to his site. Here is the situation. I personally would not recommend SCADABR anymore. Mainly because they are unresponsive to English users. Unless the new Mango does not have features you are looking for, I would stay away from SCADABR. Having said that, they are very active in their development and may have features that Mango does not have. It's been a while since I looked at either new versions.

    I still use SCADABR on a Fedora 13 server. Back then they had a script instead an install file for Ubuntu. I was able to modify the script to get it to work on Fedora. I sent it to SCADABR and as I said, they were very unresponsive and as you can see they moved to Ubuntu support only. This does not mean it will not work on just about any Linux box, becasue all you have to do is create a Tom Cat Server and get the WAR files installed and running on the Tom Cat Server. Make sure you get the Environment variables correct too and you should be good to go. To get the WAR of the latest SCADABR, create a virtual Ubuntu server on your Centos and install SCADABR. Then you should be able to study the install and figure out how to transfer it to Centos. That is the best advice I can give you, the rest will have to be up to you. As I said, I would probably steer away from SCADABR.

    The other option would be to install it on Windows. They have an incredible installer for windows. It is a breeze. Although I completely understand if you do not want to deal with Windows and all it's License complications. I know I don't, but it can give you a good idea if you think it is worth your effort to use over Mango. I typically install SCADABR on Windows first just to see the new features, which I have not done in a long while, because my server is set up and working fine, so I haven't installed anything in a year or two.

    Good Luck!

    Well this is what you get when I do not read every word, your right! No credit on the main page of the website. The installed product is quite different.

    Yes we're not talking about the same logo. This is the Logo they use when you install SCADABR.

    I disagree, their Main Logo right at the top left, says "Powered by Serotonin" and there is references to Serotonin all throughout the code. I greatly appreciate what Matt has created and it is really awesome. I wish him the best in his endeavors, but this project is too important to be dropped and I am glad that SCADABR is there to push it forward. I have done some studying of the SCADABR product and will eventually release some of my findings to add some participation that helps Open Source projects move forward. They have significant plans for new releases and this is good for all of us.

    I look forward to seeing this progress.
