Communicate and manage data from your test and measurement systems with tags.

You can create and configure tag data in a variety of ways. Use the following table to determine how to create tags to obtain and manage data.
Goal Task
I want to transfer data from my systems to my SystemLink Server with LabVIEW or LabVIEW NXG applications. Learn how to send and receive tags from a programming environment installed on your client system to your SystemLink Server.
  • I want to create a tag to test dashboard visualization or alarm rules.
  • I want to quickly add custom metadata, such as keywords or properties, to a tag.
Create or modify a tag in Tag Viewer.
I want to create and configure a tag using one of the Tag APIs. Refer to the API Reference documentation to choose which Tag API you want to use.
I want to verify my test and measurement system is transferring accurate data to my SystemLink Server. Use the Tag Viewer to confirm your SystemLink Server is collecting tag data as expected.
After you programmatically or manually create tags, use them to track measurement data, monitor system health, create alarms, and visualize data on dashboards.
