The LEADTOOLS DICOM Server Manager Demo configures three different DICOM Servers by default. These DICOM Servers use the LEADTOOLS PACS Server Framework. Each DICOM Server implements different DICOM Services using different add-ins. Additionally, a Server Manager application is provided to configure and manage all of the servers from a single user interface.
Users can add or remove supported DICOM Services from any of the servers by simply adding or removing the add-ins under the server folder. Please note that one add-in can implement multiple DICOM Services but multiple add-ins are not allowed to support the same DICOM service under a single server configuration.
Server Manager Demo:
The PACS Server Manager (CSLeadtools.Dicom.Server.Manager_Original.exe) is a sample application that uses the LEADTOOLS DICOM Service Admin SDK to allow users to manage multiple PACS Framework from one application. Users can add, remove and configure Servers; and start, stop and pause any or all server services. The application also allows DICOM client configuration for each server and exposes the add-in level settings for all configured Add-ins when implemented. In addition, users can view the transaction log of all servers from this application.
