We plan to provide users the ability to pick their tag naming convention and not worry about managing a cache file. We are working on implementing this functionality with PI Connector for OPC UA.
By running the PI Connector for OPC UA in "tag-only mode" you can define a CustomStreamId which will be used to name a PI point. The tag only mode requires a list of manually-specified NodeIds (OPC UA variables), which the connector accesses without browsing.
@Chris, can you share the prototype and timeline of the feature set? Thanks
We understand and acknowledge the importance of this request. We are evaluating how to provide a homogeneous and unified experience for health information across all our connectors.
Including "estimated buffer capacity (time)"
Description is currently supported only for PI Tags and AF Elements from version 1.3.×.×. However, description cannot currently be set at an attribute level.
We understand that for slow changing points, values might not change often and thus there is a need to collect values at certain time intervals as opposed to on change. However, scanning at frequent intervals leads to increased load on the server and thus can lead to performance degradation. We are discussing how best to solve this problem with PI Connector for OPC UA.
