  2. PI Connector for Cygnet - Historical Data Recovery

    The PI Connector for Cygnet is normally used for real-time data acquisition. But, some times it becomes necessary to migrate large volumes of historical data between Cygnet and PI.

    There is a back filling application that can be used to do this, but it is currently unsupported by Osisoft. It would be best to integrate a historical data recovery functionality into the connector.

  10. PI Connector for FANUC Focus should give a warning to users when they change the machine IP address for an existing data source.

    In the PI Connector for FANUC Focus, each data source has the IP address of the related machine specified. The "Device ID" is also part of the configuraiton. If a Device ID is not specified, the IP address is used as part of the Device ID and ends up becoming part of the AF hierarchy as well as the PI point names.

    If a user goes to change the IP address for an existing data source, and the default Device ID is being used, they will inadvertently create a second set of PI points (Duplicates, orphaning the original PI points…

  11. Identify the updated or changed nodes on the Type Definitions Export

    Be able to identify the changed (new, updated, removed) nodes that are exported in the Available Type Definitions file through the connector interface.   For systems that are in flux, there's not another way to identify those PI AF elements / attributes that are changed without saving different versions of the Export file and using a file comparison tool to see what has changed.  If the export file contained a date on each item on when it was created/updated (if that's available) that would help identify the new or changed items.

    When there are nodes and attributes that were removed from…

  13. 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…
