Some traffic sensor systems, such as CitiLog and Bosch, require a connection to a data source. Before you can monitor data from these units, you must configure the data source connection for the Traffic Sensor Management plugin.

What you should know

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
  2. From the entity tree, select the TSS Plugin role, and then click the Data Sources tab.
  3. At the bottom of the Data source list, click
  4. Enter a name for the data source and select the Data source type from the list.
  5. Click OK.
  6. If you are configuring a CitiLog media server as a data source, in the CitiLog media server section, configure the data source connection:
    IP address
    IP of the CitiLog server in IPv4 format.
    Port
    Port of the CitiLog server.
    No data reconnect
    If the CitiLog Media Server has not received a lifesig message from the TSS plugin by the time indicated here, the TSS plugin abandons the current connection and attempts to establish a new one.
    URL
    URL of the CitiLog server.
    Filter analytics
    Send filtered CitiLog analytics to downstream clients.
    Consumer Connections Port
    (Optional) The system can emulate the CitiLog server for another client. This is the connection port for downstream clients who want to receive filtered or unfiltered alerts from CitiLog.
    NOTE: This method only works for alerts, and not for metadata.
  7. If you are configuring a Sensys SNAPS server as a data source, in the Sensys SNAPS server section, configure the data source connection:
    Statistics service base URL
    URL of the Sensys SNAPS statistics service. The default value is http://127.0.0.1/snaps/dataservice/stats.xml
    User name
    User name to access the Sensys SNAPS statistics service.
    Password
    Password to access the Sensys SNAPS statistics service.
