Task Manager Interface
The task manager is your first stop for telling the IoTServer what you want it to do. There are 32 slots that may be occupied by some function, typically a protocol engine or other application. This means you could hypothetically have up to 30 different protocols all talking to each other via the IoTServer, if we actually had that many protocols to pick from.
Select the task you want to configure from the drop-down list, or select an empty slot to assign to a new function. An empty slot is simply denoted "Data Channel N". When assigned to a function, that slot will take on the name of the function.
Different protocols, applications, or task types will have different requirements for configuring the task. The specific configuration parameters for each available task function are given at the links below. Regardless of task type, each task will have certain attributes in common as described here.
