Current Version: 2.0
LNDB/U is an upgrade to the latest version of our LoggerNet DB (LNDB) software. You must have an earlier version of LNDB to qualify for the upgrade.
LoggerNet DB (LNDB) is ideally suited for transitioning data from LoggerNet’s data cache to a relational database of your choice. Publishing user-selected LoggerNet collected data to these relational databases enables data administrators to share their data with a large customer base across various platforms and methods. Those platforms could include custom websites (including those developed with RTMC and CSIWEBS), custom data reporting systems, data warehousing, and customer software (web and desktop) applications. This application is for data network administrators that want to push their valuable LoggerNet data into relational databases and have that data published in real time (as often as the data is collected).
The low-cost LNDB software is simple to set up and administer and gives you the flexibility you need for your organization. Most users can have the software installed and LoggerNet data uploading to their relational database in less than 20 minutes' time (assuming the database and LoggerNet are set up and proper credentials are issued to the data manager). After setup, LNDB runs as a service on Windows and continues to reliably push LoggerNet data to the relational database, allowing you to focus your time and energy on other projects.Read More
LNDB/U allows users who have an earlier version of LNDB to upgrade to the latest version of LNDB.

The LNDB service runs under a local system account by default, which may be why it uses the computer name. Go to Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services and set it to run under a user name.
No. For information about creating live connections to Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or MySQL data sources with FileMaker Pro’s External SQL Data Source feature, visit the FileMaker website.
One method is to use Custom Collect to specify a range of data and then store the data to a different file. Alternatively, if LNDB is set up to store data in a database, a range of data can be pulled out and stored in a separate data file. These two methods, however, are manual ones.
If the stations are all accessed by the same instance of LoggerNet, LNDB can collect table data from multiple stations. In the LNDB Manager, highlight the station in the left tree, and select the checkboxes next to the desired table names.
Note: LNDB can only communicate with one instance of LoggerNet.
Currently, LNDB cannot run under Linux unless it is run under a virtual machine that emulates Windows. However, LNDB has the ability to work with these different database engines:
There is nothing to prevent a user from continuing to run LNDB on the same Windows host on LoggerNet and posting the data to MySQL, Oracle, or PostgreSQL running under Linux. Configure LNDB (running on Windows) to point to the MySQL, Oracle, or PostgreSQL server running on Linux.
LNDB has been tested to run on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
Because Windows Server installations are all uniquely configured, it is nearly impossible for our application engineers to replicate a customer’s implementation environment at our facility.
To test whether LNDB will work in a particular Windows Server environment, download the 30 day trial versions of LoggerNet and LNDB. Each is available in the Downloads section of the product page: LoggerNet and LNDB.
No. LNDB works independently of Baler.
The LoggerNet default port number is 6789. If a command line argument has been used to change the LoggerNet default port number, this alternate port number must be open.
Note: The alternate port number must be specified in the Login to LoggerNet Server dialog box when entering the Server Address (for example, 192.168.7.123:6700).
LNDB currently requires that all data logger table columns have a corresponding database table column. There are currently three options when table definitions change:
