PI Data Archive 2016 R2 provides auto-recovery of corrupt queues. Have you been able to upgrade to this version? Does this solve your problem?
Hi Nebojsa Krstic,
While I agree with @Steve Kwan that we should try to get to the root of why your buffers are becoming corrupt, I also think it would be helpful to provide a health incident if that happens. I'll do some research on my end to learn how we might be able to surface that.
How often are your queues becoming corrupt? Have you been able to figure out what might be causing this (perhaps a power outage? or bad sector on a disk or something?) I would like to know more about how frequently this happens for you, and what might be causing it.
a couple of comments on your last response:
PI System Health will monitor the health of the PI Data Archive in a few ways - we will use some windows performance counters, and we will also be able to talk to the Data Archive directly and query any health incidents that it is able to publish. As time goes on and we release new versions, I expect the Data Archive to add to the list of incident types that it detects and reports to PI System Health.
As to the comment about ports, unfortunately, that is not something I can change. The software will need to communicate on a port. It can't use a port that's already in use, such as 5450. There are several pieces of software that are required to enable PI System Health. PI Web API is one - the good news is, that port is configurable, so you can set that yourself. We will also rely on a Connector, which uses Relay technology. There is a specific port needed for that, from the relay to the Data Archive and to AF - I believe they are using 5672, but you can double check the documentation.
All of the port requirements will be clearly documented and communicated when we have our first release, at the end of 2017. Thank you so much for your interest!
We would like to be able to expose error / log messages in PI System Health. This will not be part of the first release, but is something we are investigating how best to surface.AdminJanelle Minich (Admin, OSIsoft) supported this idea ·AdminJanelle Minich (Admin, OSIsoft) shared this idea ·
In the PI System Health Tool, we are currently planning to detect health problems for AF, Notifications and Analytics in the 2018 R2 timeframe.
Do you have additional feedback / requirements about how you currently detect when Notifications have stopped working?
Jon - we are looking at a way to enable the use case you describe - allowing users to modify AF without having to use PSE or PI Builder.
Tom LeBay is leading that work, he should be able to provide you with an update, and would probably enjoy hearing more about your use case.
This will fit into the larger Manageability Portal that we are just starting to work on, of which PI System Health will be a part.
