How to monitor Wonderware Historian performance from Wonderware InTouch application

The Wonderware Historian (IndustrialSQL Server) includes two features that allow performance statistics to be collected and distributed to network clients. The System Driver module performs the task of collecting historian performance statistics and the InSQL IOServer (INSQLIOS) allows clients to connect via Suitelink to acquire real-time data. Using these two features we can acquire historian performance statistics to clients such as InTouch for real time monitoring and alarming.
