The instrument data is acquired by an agent driver that decodes the data and
makes it available for the agent manager. The data will be time tagged when it is
received form the instrument.
Decoded data will then be fetched by the agent manager and sent to the server
manager over the LAN. The server manager uses the appropriate server driver to decode
the data so it can be stored in the database.
The received data from the agent managers can also be transmitted to display
managers for remote display or to stand-alone modules for further processing.
One or several sensors
The plug-in subscribes to data from one or several sensors. It can process and
display data. An agent manager can control several drivers and thus receive data
from multiple instruments simultaneously.
