FlexNet Licensing Service Automatic Local System This service performs licensing functions on behalf of FlexNet enabled products.
ION Alert Monitor Manual Local System Receives and processes high-priority alarm and event notifications coming from modem connected meters on remote power monitoring locations. When this happens, the Alert Monitor initiates a communications connection to the remote modem site to download additional logged data (for example, data, events, and waveforms).
ION Application Modules Alarm Services Host Manual Local System Allows the Event Notification Module (ENM) to read alarms directly from the ION_Data database. Starts on demand from other services (for example, from the Event Notification Module).
ION Application Modules Core Services Host Automatic Local System Hosts common web services used by the Web Applications component.
ION Application Modules Data Services Host Automatic Local System Hosts web services that provide low-level access to system data (that is, real-time, historical, alarming, and authentication) for the Web Applications component.
ION Application Modules Provider Engine Host Automatic Local System Hosts web services that provide data processing for the Web Applications component.
ION Cloud Agent Service Automatic Local System Manages interaction with cloud services.
ION Component Identifier Service Manual Local System Locates local and remote product components. Starts shortly after startup by request of ION Connection Management Service.
ION Connection Management Service Manual Local System Determines the connection status of sites and devices in the system, and handles allocation of resources such as modems. This service manages the state of site and device connectivity for the system. In order to establish the most appropriate state for the system, each connection and disconnection request is evaluated against the overall state of the system and availability of communications channels. Starts shortly after startup by request of ION Network Router Service.
ION Diagnostics and Usage Service Automatic Local System Collects basic, nonidentifying information from the Power Monitoring Expert system and uploads it to a secure location on the cloud for data mining by Schneider Electric. Customers can opt-in or opt-out at any time.
