I have a requirement that I like to bounce off the members first before I start installing things. Broad Layout: There are upto 12 machines in a Food factory, each with an industrial PC running Linux Mint. There is one other pc that can be used as a server in the same facility.Each PC (Fitlets) has Wifi. A dedicated program operates each of these machines and requires milli second precision. I say that because I can’t afford Network traffic during production. When a machine is stopped for longer than 30 sec’s the report is updated with values. During that time we can sync with the server which has a very light non-time critical function. The system has been running successfully for a few years now.
I have been asked to automate getting reports to head office on the other side of the country.So getting the reports from the server to HO is my main concern with Syncthing, as the preliminary reading did not shed light on that for me. The reports do not need to be synced to a schedule, but as the operators turn the power off for cleaning when production finishes picking the time for syncing seems difficult. The clients can sync with the server as soon as production has stopped for 30 sec’s. Similarly I don’t mind if HO is updated the following day when the power is first turned On.
So, I don’t have a specific question but hoping to prompt someone to reply with a roadmap to achieving this.
