I spent the day pulling my hair out trying to set up trends for a customer on an Auto-Matrix system. It all seems to be straight forward but I must be doing something wrong.
I am setting up 'Local' trends because I was unable to figure out how to set the PHP upload path to C:\TRENDS\ in the Sage-Max. I had no problems creating Trends and adding the points but when I configure the chart settings, save them and select 'use as default at start-up' I have a problem.
I am trying to set the x-axis to display 5 days. I set the 'min' to 'NOW' (current date and time) and the 'span' to 5 (days). All others I leave at the default. The graph appears the way I want it so I 'Save' and check 'Use as default at start-up'. I did this for each trend that I created. The problem is when I re-open the graph it may sometimes start with the year 1899, sometimes the interval is 5 minutes instead of 5 days, sometimes 15 or 20 minutes. Everything on the graph looks OK except the x-axis configuration.
Am I leaving something out?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
As a side note, I also have a problem if I am configuring the Trend Viewer and 'deactivate' the Object Server. When I restart the Object Server I get a popup that says something about Object Server Memory and look for a hidden or duplicate Object Server running etc. If I shut down Trend Viewer and Alarm Viewer and 'activate' Object Server it will start OK. Any clues?
