Overview of the Server-to-Server Collector

The Historian server-to-server collector allows you to collect data and messages from a source Historian server to a destination on-premises Historian server or Predix Cloud.

GE recommends installing the server-to-server collector in the source Historian machine. Doing so enables the store and forward capabilities of data collectors to preserve collected data even if the collector and destination archiver are disconnected. The server-to-server collector can also run as a stand-alone component where both the source and destination Historian databases are on remote machines.

You can set up the server-to-server collector on Predix Edge or a generic Linux distribution such as Ubuntu or CentOS.
