OSI should get together and devise a proper data synching mechanism that should guarantee synching archives for all backfilled events and so on.3 votes
Please consider evaluating whether PI Cloud Services would satisfy your needs.
The current automated Archive reprocessing creates a backup of the original archive in the archive directory. This can lead to a situation where the archive drive runs out of space.
It would be useful to be able to configure the backup location for the reprocessed archives. This should be a tuning parameter.3 votes
The ability to define and rollout compression standards on tags across the enterprise / sites.
When this information is captured bottom up from sites, bad settings make it difficult to maintain a standard which inhibits cross site data comparisons.2 votes
This is currently possible by leveraging AF. In AF, you can configure a template with the desired PI Point attribute configurations, then you can exercise the “Create or Update PI Point” option to change the PI Point attribute.
As a PI Admin, I need assistance configuring and testing Kerberos delegation, so that I can access the full functionality of the products without exposing my system.2 votes
Please contact tech support and they would be able to assist with your configuration.
A few customers would like the capability of storing vibration wave form data in PI. They often measure data in MHz and GHz frequencies, which are at a finer resolution that the PI Data Archive is capable of storing. The wave forms are captured over periods from 2 to 30 seconds and only saved if there is an interesting event.
Customers in data centers are also requesting power quality wave form storage in PI.1 vote
pisrvstart.bat and pisrvstop.bat scripts should have "pilogsrvX64" added to them. Currently all services except the "PIPC Log Server x64" are started/stopped by these scripts.1 vote
This log service is used by 64 bit application that loads the PI API. The most common being 64 bit PI Interfaces. Therefore if you have 64 bit PI API based applications, these scripts should start/stop the service for you. Please contact tech support if you have these applications and pilogsrvx64 is not in your pisrvstart and pisrvstop scripts.
As a side note, recent releases of the PI Server implements virtual service accounts for all the Data Archive related services so please consider it for an upgrade.
