Data Diagnostics

The Data Diagnostics page lets users with administrative privileges review and troubleshoot the results of file imports and quickly see:

  • Service Configurations
  • Service Agreements
  • Endpoint History
  • Meter History

for service points at a given location. In addition, advanced users can get visibility into BEACON database entries.

To use the Data Exchange Diagnostics section:

      : Type *** to see a list of all the location service points in your utility. 


    2. Select the service point of interest at a given location.

In the Endpoint section, a Status of Valid has two meaning:

• If no removal date has been given, Valid indicates a normally functioning endpoint. Messages can be received and reads stored.

• If a removal date has been given, Valid indicates that until the removal date (if one is given), the endpoint was operating. In addition, the latest endpoint configuration has a status of Valid and a removal date, any new messages received by BEACON are ignored and the endpoint has been decommissioned.
