There are several networking protocols available to accomplish this task. Using the Right Networking Protocol
White Paper will guide you through the task of choosing the right protocol for your application. It covers the most common communication models used in control and monitoring applications and recommends networking protocols best suited to each situation based on configuration, performance, ease of use, etc.
The referenced white paper focuses on three models of communication:
- Command or message-based communication: infrequent information transfer triggered by a specific event.
- Process Data Communication: periodic transfer of the latest values of process variables.
- Streaming/Buffered Communication: streaming data, large amounts of information are sent continuously but not necessarily in real-time.
Below you can access detailed information on using any of these protocols with LabVIEW:
