  1. Get data by polling

    Support acquiring data by polling the OPC UA server rather than subscription.

  2. Linux Version of PI OPC-UA Connector

    This should be self-explanatory.  I'd also suggest making Linux versions of all software available, but this Connector would be a great start.

    We are evaluating this proposal. If this request is for a specific distribution of Linux, kindly forward that information to me or please leave a comment with the device type/name or Linux distribution name.

    Description is currently supported only for PI Tags and AF Elements from version 1.3.×.×. However, description cannot currently be set at an attribute level.

  4. Retrieve data even it's not changed on OPC server

    Currently Connector configured to rertieve event on change and not based on a scan class like interfaces.The Connector suscribes to the changes, and when a change comes in to the server, the data will be sent to PI connector. We need option to retrieve the data every certain minutes even data is the same and is not changed on OPC server.

    We understand that for slow changing points, values might not change often and thus there is a need to collect values at certain time intervals as opposed to on change. However, scanning at frequent intervals leads to increased load on the server and thus can lead to performance degradation. We are discussing how best to solve this problem with PI Connector for OPC UA.

  5. Support Alarms and Conditions

    Support for Alarms & Conditions.  This data type would be good candiate for storing into Event Frames.  Tell us more about your use case in the comments, which source system you have that support A&C, and how you would select which A&C to collect/not collect.  How would you like Event Frames built and named?
