Use the Variables & I/O Servers VIs to create, configure, and delete a shared variable; to commit multiple shared variables; or to create, configure, or delete an I/O server.
|Commit Shared Variables||Commits multiple shared variables to the Shared Variable Engine simultaneously.|
|Configure Alarming||Configures the alarm settings of a shared variable.|
|Configure Description||Configures the description of a shared variable.|

|Create and Configure IO Server||Creates a new Modbus, Modbus Slave, or OPC Client I/O server and adds the I/O server to the Shared Variable Engine (SVE).
You also can use this Express VI to configure or replace an existing I/O server.
|Create Shared Variable||Creates a shared variable of the given name and type in the specified process. The shared variable that you want to create replaces an existing shared variable if the two shared variables have the same name.|
|Delete IO Server||Removes a Modbus, Modbus Slave, or OPC Client I/O server from the Shared Variable Engine. You can wire the I/O server URL out output of the Create and Configure IO Server Express VI to the I/O server URL input of this VI to delete the specified I/O server programmatically.|
|Delete Shared Variable||Removes an individual shared variable from the Shared Variable Engine (SVE).|
|Get Shared Variable List||Returns a list of all the shared variables associated with a given process in the Shared Variable Engine on the host computer or remote targets.|
