    How does one know if one collective member has stopped receiving data from PI to PI? I guess the question is how do we ensure to our users that data is the same no matter what collective member they connect to? I understand your design, but seems like there needs to be a way then for PI to PI to verify data is arriving on all nodes, if not, back-fill or fix data to the single nodes that is impacted.

    Since this was posted, we now have the PI connector. We would like to do more testing with that, but a bug took it back away from us earlier. Seems that the bug is fixed and well do some testing now.

    100 % agree. I think there are other posting in regards to this.

    I would assume most companies have a source and destination PI collective. I feel like I'm always asking for the same thing. We need them in sync. If our analytics are running on the source system (and AF) and we change an analytic calculation, the data is only corrected on the source side. The destination side is now wrong and has bad data! This leaves us a mess to try to clean up! When we change an analytic on the source side, and recalculate and replace the data the same needs to occur on the destination.

    PI System Connector with configurable snapshot support is coming soon! In order to provide you with the latest and most secure PI Connector, the timeframe for this release is being extended to May. Be assured that we are working diligently to provide you with much anticipated features as quickly as possible.

    Why can't I see or find the download. The latest I see is 2.2.0.1. Is it not released yet?

    In response to Franz Krauter, "PI to PI in parallel is not a solution. ..."
    Couldn't agree more!

    I had heard the same thing, but I've also recently heard they've re considered.

    PI to PI and APS is still not meeting our requirements. While OSIsoft says this is the solution, its not a good one. PI APS processes tags one at a time. Startup time for PItoPI is also slow. APS and PItoPI is not multithreaded. The APS syncing for a large amount of tags is not meeting our need. Because the Connector still does not meet our requirements, we've had to add many (currently 14) interfaces which is very difficult to manage across multiple servers at multiple locations. Anytime we have PI to PI or APS talking to systems at other locations (for disaster recovery) latency causes the startup time and sync times to take hours. Not an acceptable high availability solution.

    With 47 votes you would think the folks would listen to what we need. I have not been impressed with how slow this connector has been moving. APS and PItoPI are not working for us. Syncing a collective across a few states, causes latency issues and the sync process takes 24 hours currently.

    In response to Matthew Bailey, "We need this as well. We have a project ..."
    I should add that we have been waiting for the connector to meet these requirements for 4 years!
    Essentially we want two collectives ( a source and destination) to be the same.
     
    Requirements
    - Send PI data even if it's not in AF.
    - Send real-time snapshot data. It seems really useless for us to be able to only send archive data. Users using the destination system don't get the real-time or accurate values?  A breaker is closed, but the users see's it open? Not making sense.
    - If a tag name is changed on the source collective, it should update on the destination side.
    - Should be much faster then PI to PI and APS (multi threaded), should work better across two locations where latency comes to play.
    - Should be easier to configure then PItoPI and APS

    We need this as well. We have a project on hold until this is done.

    We need this for our engineers to edit Limits. We have our Limits set as PI points and if they changed, we would like to allow users with permission to edit values.

    To be honest, I feel like printing was an after thought? We have data, we need a good way to view and print it.

    We are using IE 11 and when we print - It's a blank page. Other browsers kind of work, but we have to use IE.

    If you have a chance, we’d like to learn more about the use case behind this request.

    By default, PI Vision will automatically pick up and use the time zone of the client machine a user is running their browser on, so all times should be displayed in a user’s local time zone.

    If this isn’t the behavior you are seeing, or if you have a use case where users need more control over the time zone being used to display data please let us know.

    This is the behavior we are seeing but we would like for our users to go into the settings and change the timezone they prefer to see. Again, we have two Operations centers that span time zones. Both sites will want to view data in the same time zone, even though their client times are local to them.

    mbailey commented  · 

    I understand that users browsers present the data in their time zone. The issue for us is that when Operators are talking to each other, across time zones, they would like to be able to set the time zone by which they are viewing the data. We actually have this issue with other products as well IE Process Book. It seems that there should be an option to use client time, or select from a dropdown the time zone you would like to see the data in.

    One other thing not consistent is the way categories are handled between Vision and ProcessBook. We like that users can drag and drop a category from PI vision bringing over multiple tags. You can't drag categories to a display in ProcessBook. Sorting categories also doesn't work in ProcessBook if there are more then one assigned.
