Khronos Historian Backfill Utility

The Khronos Historian Backfill Utility migrates large volumes of historical data from CitectSCADA® Trend files into FactoryTalk® Historian SE or OSI PI® Historian. It supports:

  • Sourcing data from CitectSCADA version 5 or later (tested up to version 8)
  • Sourcing data directly from disk for faster processing
  • Sourcing data from offline trend files on the network
  • Both 2-byte and 8-byte file formats
  • Both Periodic and Event trend types
  • Scaling output values to either Raw or Engineering ranges
  • Performing basic compression during insertion
  • Output to FactoryTalk Historian, OSI PI, or CSV files

The utility is typically used when deploying a new Historian at an existing CitectSCADA site, or to provide data protection by replicating data stored in offline proprietary files to a robust, online environment. A key benefit of the migration is that the entire historical repository is immediately available to historian clients.

It supports a variety of settings and tuning parameters to customise the data migration to your purpose, and leverages native SDK for maximum data injection performance.
