Levels in a System in which Counters Operate

Note: Following are the levels in a system in which counters operate.
Level Description
Level 1–Object A system can be divided in several objects. Example There is a CIMPLICITY object called Alarm Class. There is a Windows object called LogicalDisk
Level 2–Counter There are one or more resources in an object that can be numerically counted. Example HMI Alarm Class includes Acknowledged alarms (Acked) and any Alarms (Alarms). Both can be counted LogicalDisk includes several resources that can be numerically tracked. Resources include % Free Space, % Disk Read time, Avg. Disk Bytes per read
Level 3–Instance Each counter includes one or more specific instance that can be singled out for diagnosis. Example: HMI Alarm Class Acknowledged alarms can focus on a specific CIMPLICITY project, or all the projects on a system (_Total) LogicalDisk % Free space can focus on a specific drive, such as the C: drive or all the drives in the system (_Total)
