PI System Connector: Need real time snapshot data support for the PI System connector.47 votes
As an equipment specialist working centrally, I wish to deploy my AF Element Templates including Analysis and Notifications Templates to my remote sites so I have them managed from a central location. This also insures that remote sites are using the same calculations and KPIs.14 votes
We have considered including this functionality natively as part of the PI system as opposed to including this in the connector.
The PI System Connector allows to include PI Point replication directly from the PI Data Archive even if they are not reference in the PI AF hierarchy with the "Include all PI points from this PI Data Archive" option.
I would like to replicate only some PI Points that are not referenced, not all. This would remove the need to maintain both a PI to PI and a PI System Connector.
I could create a bogus AF Database referencing those points but I would prefer not to.12 votes
Support for replicating data from multiple AF Databases.7 votes
The current version of PI System Connector does not support replicating the PI Point security attributes:
A further option would be to automatically create any PI Identities contained the PI Point security attributes if the destination PI System is missing them.6 votes
I would like to have the option to replicate AF Analyses using PI System Connector with the option to mark the desired analyses for replication.4 votes
Need to add instrumentation to PI System Connector wheras exposing perfmon counters (so PI perfmon can store accordingly in PI tags) on AVG data flow in events/sec for a 120 seconds time period, status of the connector, etc3 votes
As an architect, I have to model AF structures at a central location, and push them to distributed assets.
I would like the ability to design my AF structure centrally, then replicate it to my distributed assets (e.g ships). Example features that are needed:
- Ability to include Analyses, Notification Rules, and their templates in the synchronization
- Ability to not copy the data from source to destination3 votes
PI System Connector Destination AF Configuration String should not Contain Source PI Server Name if it is Unreachable
Currently, if the PI Server specified in the source PI AF server is unreadable from the PI System Connector node, the Connector will forward the listed source PI Server name in the configuration string to the destination AF Server. This causes confusion as the Destination AF server will likely not have access to the unreachable source PI Server. Instead, The connector should create a configuration string on the destination AF server stating that the source PI Server Host is unreachable.3 votes
Ability to have deletions replicated across systems as well (might need to be a config option on how to handle).3 votes
When configuring the PI System Connector, there is currently no option to constrain the communications for the data source of PI Tag data to a secondary or tertiary PI Collective member.
The ability to force the PI System Connector to use the secondary or tertiary PDA as the data source will allow customers worried about impacting their primary archive's performance to manually balance the load on their collective and eliminate impacting the performance of their existing solutions.2 votes
To use the PI System Connector for enterprise applications like machine learning, mvda,... it should also be possible to configure "output tags". the result of analytics on enterprise level are needed also on local PI systems, so for some attributes/tags a two way communication is required.1 vote
