How can we improve our NOC Services?

Monitor PI Services running under WCF (Windows Clustered Failover)

I'd like to monitor the heath of PI Software that runs under WCF (Windows Clustered Failover) so that I can have high(er) available services for my customer that are monitored with NOC Services.

I’d like to see more customers upvote with comments indicating that PI Analytics is important to run under WCF.

    DCP Midstream and PG&E both utilize multiple instances of PI Analytics / Notifications within a WFCS. This is our best practice architecture for High Availability for both services, and for all enterprise grade systems. This seems less like an enhancement, and more of a "keeping up with the products"

    David, is High Availability not always best practice? Whether WCF is a majority or minority now, not having this function is putting unnecessary stress on some of your big customers. I think NOC/mPI should do this ASAP.

    Hi, I have to big clients in Spain that have WCF. We have had problems with PI Buffer Subsystem and WCF in the past (already solved in version 4.6) and now we can't monitor some servers.
