while it is true that almost everything in ifix runs on VBA, the actual amount of custom scripting can be kept to an absolute minimum. There are wizards available for most basic tasks like changing pictures.

alarms in one place is off course possible, but filtering is too.

iFIX has extensive redundancy capabilities. For datalogging there is iHistorian, with its own redundancy and capable of dealing with ifix redundancy as well.

iFIX can be troublesome at times, specially with larger systems with allot of clients (at the moment i have a system running with 12 ifix servers, historian and arround 30 clients, it is challenging at times) if you need to add allot of tags you will need to generate those in excel.
