Use DataFinder instances to index your technical data on local computers and servers in a global network or in the SystemLink file service. Use Data Navigation or client software like DIAdem or LabVIEW to search data with the instances created. By default, Data Indexing comes with a FileIndex instance dedicated to searching data in the SystemLink file service. For data on computers and servers outside of the SystemLink server, you create DataFinder instances with specified search areas, in which clients like Data Navigation can search.
