The Metasys system has three event repositories for storing event messages.

Table 1. Event Repositories

Type

Description

Local (Engine) Event Repository

  • Provides temporary storage for event messages on the Engine.
  • Allows the event messages stored in the local Engine event repository to appear in the Event Viewer and Alarms Window.
  • Sends event messages from the local Engine event repository to the defined Default Destination.

ODS Event Repository

  • Provides permanent storage for event messages on the ODS platform.
  • Event messages generated on an ODS platform are placed directly into the ODS event repository.
  • Allows the event messages stored in the ODS event repository to appear in the Event Viewer and Alarms Window.
  • Receives event messages from multiple local Engine event repositories and provides permanent storage for the event messages. The ODS event repository is usually defined as the Default Destination for event messages from local Engine event repositories.
  • Provides the option to send event messages from a single ODS event repository to one or more ODS event repositories for permanent storage. See the Configuring an ODS Event Repository section for details.

FAC's Event Log

  • Event logs are only viewable in the CCT. Configure the Advanced tab to work with FACs to record events using events logs. Refer to Working with the Advanced Tab in the CCT Help (LIT-12011147).
  • The CCT can be set up to send event notifications from the FAC event logs to other devices. Refer to Setting up Device Notification in the CCT Help (LIT-12011147).

For information on configuring the event repositories, click one of the following section names:

A Database Timeout Error can occur when viewing events if the repository contains too many events to be filtered before the system times out (typically, one million events). To prevent this error, on a regular basis you should backup and purge event records from the repository (JCIEvents) using the Metasys Database Manager.
