PI Interface for RDBMS

Showing 10

Alert user when the interface discards values

Example:  When using a distribution tag, the number of tags returned and number of values sent to PI can be mismatched, due to missing aliases or data that does not need to be collected. It would be helpful to identify what values are dropped or ...

RDBMS time stamp precision

Currently the ODBC connection is configured with a SQL date time parameter when retrieving the TS parameter (snapshot time stamp). Due to the fact lots of sources system having more precision in their time stamps, it makes it hard to compair sour...

Add option to select interface behavior for bad timestamps (PI RDBMS)

When the PI RDBMS Interface gets a bad timestamp from the source RDB that it cannot coerce into a PI Timestamp, the interface attempts to use the current timestamp instead and logs the following error: "pitm_settime() error - 15002. Using current...

Accept weeks and years in the relative time syntax for history recovery start and end times

For whatever reason, times such as *-1w or *-1y are not accepted, but times such as *-1mo and *-1d are OK. Please make the PI Interface for RDBMS accept the same relative times that other PI programs accept.

New start-up parameter /SYNC_TIME defining a floating-window during which the interface will keep a RDB table in sync with PI data archive

The new RDBMSPI param:  /SYNC_TIME=rel_start_time,rel_end_time   for instance /SYNC_TIME=*-6h,*+1h When set, the interface: - after each execution of a query, which shall have the same "floating" window in its WHERE clause; for instance: SE...

Accept the dd-mmm-yyyy format in the absolute time syntax for history recovery start and end times

The PI Interface for RDBMS currently accepts the format dd-mmm-yy but not the format dd-mmm-yyyy for history recovery start and end times. The former format lacks the century, so the year is ambiguous. The latter format solves this problem and so...

Improved handling of PIBUFSS initialization

We have encountered a situation where we were unable to write out-of-order data to PI through the buffer subsystem from an interface, apparently because the buffer subsystem was not yet fully initialized when the interface connected to it. Please ...
