Data Flow in inmation

Different object types in inmation are used for the data transport, which have different subfunctions. In principle, the data flow is schematically as follows:

DataSource

HistoryTransporter

HistoryController

The following dependencies apply:

An exception is the case where the data source cannot provide a history but only real-time data. Here on the source side no HistoryTransporter is necessary, instead the regular archiving functionality is used, including the standard buffer functions of the Connector (Store and Forward)
