  2. Unregister interfaces in bulk on ICU

    In scenarios where we have to move interface instances to a new machine, we will have to perform some cleanup after of un-registering the interfaces in ICU. This includes removing the bat files and services. It would be nice to perform this task in bulk.

  3. Support redundancy with OPC event tags

    Currently, with OPC event tags, if the connection between the interface and PI Data Archive is broken and signups lost, the event tags will stop polling the OPC server for data. I would like to see a level of redundancy added whereby if the OPC-PI Server connection is broken, the event tags will default over to a predefined scan class, or alternatively be advise tags.

  4. Batch Framework Interfaces - [TIME] placeholder should consider whether TS=LCL is configured

    Batch Framework Interfaces - [TIME] and [TIMESTAMP] placeholders should consider whether TS=LCL is configured (meaning the interface is processing incoming events as Local Time). Currently, values of these placeholders always show up as GMT timestamps.

  5. Reference a local .csv file with mappings (TagName-InstrumentTag) to shorten start-up times.

    The .csv file with TagName-InstrumentTag mappings will allow start the interface without specifying the PointSource, which will potentially shorten the start-up times against systems with larg point count. Once the interface is running it will update this file with corresponding points, which have been created/updated/deleted while the interface has been running.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 125215.

  6. Support for mathematical operations to be performed on timestamps that are stored as SECONDS_GMT

    Time manipulations (adding and subracting) can only be performed on standard datetime formats and not on SECONDS_GMT 

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 118924.

  7. Create a new function signaling the Beginning of the Stream

    Create a new function signaling the Beginning of the Stream. For example, BOS() returns 1 if this is the first line of a stream; otherwise it returns 0.

  8. Support Modbus device failover

    Enhance the interface to support redundant Modbus devices with different network cards/IP addresses. The controllers would publish a status update on the active device, and the interface should request data from it accordingly.
