OSIsoft is committed to providing customers with a more manageable system. We are working hard to solve the problems of deployment, security, and standardized health messaging within our products.

PI System Health and PI System Directory were early steps in the manageability story, and we learned a lot thanks to significant customer testing and feedback. We also discovered that there is much more to making a truly manageable system through these engagements.  In order to pursue these larger needs surrounding manageability, we will not be releasing PI System Health, and we are putting PI System Directory on maintenance so that our engineering resources can be allocated toward these bigger efforts. As such, there are no additional enhancements for PI System Directory planned at this time.

As a result, the status of this suggestion will be changed back to “No status” for the time being. Future status updates will be communicated here.

    I like the idea!
    What would be really nice is if we could have our custom integration components (AFSDK apps for instance) report through the same mechanism to show their health.

    We have many custom components in our workflows and understanding their health would be a huge benefit.

    I guess this leads to a generalization: have a way to show the connectivity between assets and attributes related to the connections. For example, we could have the pipe connections between tanks and pumps, or the flow of rock from a blast pile into a loader bucket and into a haul truck, which will dump the rock into either an ore pile or a waste rock pile.

    I like this idea. It would be great to have also information about number of connections and the amount of data (bits per second and overal amount of data sent). It should be possible to gather this information from the logs - having this function from OSI would make it ease for us.
