How do I retrieve a list of shared variable servers

I would like to list all computers currently serving Shared Varables (tagsrv.exe?).

 

The list I want is the same as the Network Items shown in the NI Distributed System Manager.

 

 


Now is the right time to use %^<%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%3uZ>T

Hi Phillip,

Do you need to list this LabVIEW? I am a bit confused by your question.

Yes, from LabVIEW. I have a named process and associated variable that I would like to retrieve programatically using DataSocket and the psp: protocol.

 

I am not interested in using shared variable functionality and I do not have or want to use the DSC module.

 

I simply need to programatically retrieve a list of SVE servers, then construct a psp: style URL, then loop over each server to monitor my named process/variable.

Hi Phillip,

I think this Dev Zone Example is doing what you would like:
