  1. Make the PI Data Collection Manager default to a more user friendly configuration

    When the PI Data Collection Manager is installed, intuitive defaults are chosen, and intuitive redirects are not set up. The PI Data Collection Manager installation should:

    -By default, check for port 443 and 80 availability on the machine. If they are available, set the collection manager up on port 443, and set up a site on port 80 to do a HTTP -> HTTPS redirect.
    -Set up a redirect, redirecting the root / site to /UI.

    These two changes would greatly improve remote management, and management of the server itself. Rather than doing the intuitive thing and visiting the root…

  3. Write e-terrahabitat log messages to the PI Message log

    Certain information such as digitalsets that do not match the definitions in SCADA are only logged in the Windows Application log.  It would be extremely helpful if this information could be written to the PI Message log.  This would allow for easier access, identification and correction of related issues by PI Admins.

  4. Minify the PI Data Collection Manager's (PI DCM's) HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code

    The code for the PI Data Collection Manager's web pages is currently not minified. Please minify it so that the pages load faster, especially on mobile devices, and so that the network traffic is reduced.

    To be clear, to avoid the extra processing time of a separate minification step, the code should be minified to begin with. That is, the PI Data Collection Manager should be released with pre-minified code.

  5. Add 2 new PI Connector categories on UserVoice: "PI Data Collection Manager" & "PI Connector Relay"

    The number of suggestions for the PI Data Collection Manager and the PI Connector Relay is building up, and they are currently all going under the "General" category. Please add new categories for these programs and reclassify existing suggestions accordingly.

  6. Native support for PI Data Archive collective

    "For Interfaces if we add a new member to the PI Collective, all other interfaces will automatically detect it, and start sending data.
    With PI Connector Relay 1.x, someone will have to remember to manually configure.

  7. PI Connector Relay - Add ability to retrieve cached OMF meta data like Types and Containers

    As an OMF application developer it will be very useful to have the ability to retrieve and have a look at the already created and cached OMF meta data like Types and Containers.

  8. Customizable compression / exception rules based on Span

    When using Connectors, it would be desirable to specify a rule to set up exception / compression based on the Span of a tag.

    For example:
    1. Span <100 excdevpercent = 0.1% / excdev = 0.1 and comdevpercent = 0.2% / comdev = 0.2   
    2. Span < 1000 excdevpercent = 0.2% / excdev = 0.2 and comdevpercent = 0.4% / comdev = 0.4
    3. Span < 10000 excdevpercent = 1% / excdev = 1 and comdevpercent = 2% / comdev = 2
    ...

    The rule could also take into account the Unit of Measure, for example:

    Span < 100 AND…
