  1. Fix PI Diagnostics so that it does not require restart after alarm

    At times, an alert generated by the NOC does not clear until the PI Diagnostic Services is restarted. It would be more convenient if this restart was not needed when the alarm clears.

  2. Replace PI Diagnostics Prerequisites 2.5.0.0 when installing PI Diagnostics 2.5.4.0

    If you install PI Diagnostics 2.5.4.0 when you have PI Diagnostics 2.5.2.0 already installed, PI Diagnostics x64 Prerequisites 2.5.4.0 and PI Diagnostics x86 Prerequisites 2.5.4.0 will not replace their existing 2.5.0.0 counterparts. Instead, the 2.5.0.0 counterparts are left as-is. Please change the PI Diagnostics install kit to replace the 2.5.0.0 versions of PI Diagnostics Prerequisites with the 2.5.4.0 versions.

  3. Prevent temporary drives from being monitored

    Currently if you have hard drives monitored by the NOC, if you attach a temporary hard drive, the NOC will begin to monitor it. This can be a nuisance to the customer if the drive has low disk capacity but is only being used for a short period of time. A potential solution would be to have a feature where customer can have the option to automatically monitor new drives.

  4. Document how to set minimum permissions for each Managed PI service

    I want to set give minimum permissions to the service accounts that run the Managed PI services. The solution proposed by tech support was to either use the Local System account or add the service account to the local Administrators group. The former approach would require giving the entire Managed PI computer permission to the PI Data Archive, since Local System takes the identity of the machine. The latter approach gives the service account excessive permissions on the Managed PI computer. A 3rd approach was described to me, but it was too vague to complete. Clearly, none of these approaches…

  5. Be able to see a history of NOC support case communications

    NOC support cases are very similar to tech support cases. Sometimes, the communications go into great detail, and it would be nice to recall a history of these communications similar to tech support cases on the tech support website.

    Since NOC support cases use the same numbering system as tech support cases, I see no harm in showing NOC support cases alongside tech support cases on the tech support website.

  8. Help me manage my alerts other than email!

    I'd like an easier way of managing my alerts other than email, something that helps me determine what needs to be done next to resolve my issue, or helps me connect with the right OSIsoft staff to resolve the issue.

  10. Monitor PI Connectors

    I'd like to monitor the health of the PI Connectors so that I can quickly remediate service issues that occur. The missing monitoring is a show stopper to switch from Interfaces to Connectors.

  13. Let me self install NOC agent

  14. Use non-confusing non-US-Centric date formats

    Currently the GUI displays and requires timestamps to be entered in US date format (M/D/YYYY) in the Advanced – Current Values and Maintenance sections. I would like to view/enter dates either in my local time zone or using a non ambiguous format, e.g. 5-May-2017.

  15. Replace "All machines for your PI System" with ServerName if a system is a single server

    Customer does not want to see that "All machines for your PI System" 219876543 down, if system 219876543 only consists of one PI Server. Customer would like if we could refine our System alerts if PI Agent is only down for a single machine.

  16. Scheduled NOC reports to customer

    I would like to get a monthly report 12:00 am the first day of the month to 11:59 pm the last day of the month that includes both ITSM Incidents and NOC Incidents, showing the Site, System, Machine, object and issue (along with criticality) grouped by system/machine/objectissue with a count of occurences and average duration. That way we could review our monthly performance and trending the first week of each month.

  20. More descriptive interface name in email alerts

    I'd like to be able to annotate my interfaces in the NOC so that when I receive an alert, it is more descriptive than something like "OPCInt1". This will help me understand the data source when I receive the alerts in the middle of the night.
