Since 1985, Canary Labs has been focused on reliably and quickly recording time series data into it's process data historian. Named after the canaries that were carried into coal mines by miners to detect toxic gases, Canary software assists engineers and control operators in finding conditions that are not easily detected; providing early warning and alarms that will help prevent minor issues from becoming major disasters.

Data Historian Architecture
If communication between the logger and the data historian would be interrupted, you will not loose data. The logger creates a hard buffer that is not released until a response is received indicating that all data was successfully archived. Once communication is re-established, all data will transfer from the logger buffer to the sender service.
