How It Works
- Data Input
. Data can arrive via a TCP/IP port, as a data file saved to a watch directory, as a file printed to a virtual printer, or via a Data Collection Server.
. Data is then processed based on predetermined rules (defined as a mapĚ) and printed through the print engine.
. (Optional) Reporting information can be e-mailed in realtime to an administrator to indicate a problem or activities can be logged for historical purposes.
. (Optional) Data can be outputted for archiving or as input to another watch.
