  1. Failover for PI Connector Relay

    Although, the PI Connector Relay going down / not being available does not cause data loss since the connector data is buffered, if the source connector supports Failover, the relay becomes the only single point of failure in the data flow.

    Having an HA option for the PI Relay would allow for a more robust architecture.

  2. Support Failover at the data source level

    For PI Connector (1.x) that support failover like OPC UA, failover will only occur when all data sources get into a bad state. Failover should not have to be configure at the PI Connector node level, but for each data source.

    Use case 1:
    If 3 connectors are installed:
    -ConnectorA can connect to OPC1 and OPC2
    -ConnectorB can connect to OPC1 and OPC3
    -ConnectorC can connect to OPC2 and OPC3
    Impossible to configure failover with the current implementation

    Use case 2:
    -ConnectorA has 5 data sources and is primary
    -ConnectorB has 5 data sources and is backup
    If 4/5 data…
