3.1.Introduction

OPC aggregation means bringing together the data from several OPC servers into one common access point, a single server. Configuring the DataHub for aggregation is simply a matter of adding servers.

The OPC DataHub can aggregate any number of servers, and act as a server to any number of clients. Servers can be added or removed dynamically, during run-time.
