Architecture

The visionCATS software is based on a client/server architecture, in which a single database and a single server is connected to a number of clients and instrument services (i.e. a visionCATS cluster). In the simplest case and by default in the installer, visionCATS consists in a single server, client and instrument service installed locally. Further installation in the same cluster will be clients’ installation only.

  • Full installation (server/client/instrument service)

    During a full installation, the database and the visionCATS server are installed. Additionally, the client and the instrument service are installed by default (see Installer options for more details).

  • Client installation (starting with the second installation in a cluster)

    A client installation installs the visionCATS client. Additionally, the instrument service is installed by default (see Installer options for more details).
