Add failover capability for the BACnet Connector.

Failover similar to the UFO available for UNIint interfaces.  Warm failover would be sufficient, although I'm sure there are some who would like cold and hot as well.

trend log objects (BACnet object type 20) available from the connector

BACnet trendlog object present the opportunity to buffer at the edge where the data is collected and to gracefully recover from comms outages if data collection has been impacted. I would suspect the trendlog object could be handled similarly t...

Allow the BACnet Connector to handle responses with an LVT that does not match the request

Currently the BACnet Connector expects devices to respond with the same "Length Value, and Type" (LVT) value as the request. When this occurs the BACnet Connector cannot parse the data in the response. For example: Request from Connector, LVT=1 Re...

Suppress the creation of "Status Flag" PI Points

The end-user would like to suppress the creation of the "Status Flag" PI Points, as they wish to keep their point count to a minimum due to the license-enforced point limit.

Program objects (BACnet object type 16) also bought through by the connector

Increase the maximum timeout for the BACnet Discovery Utility with the PI Connector for BACnet

If a user has many BACnet devices/objects discoveries can take some time. Since the BACnet Discovery Utility has a maximum timeout of 240 seconds, this utility can cannot be used in these scenarios and manual creation of the csv is required which ...

Log device information when the Connector receives errors from a device

Currently the Connector logs when it receives errors, but does not print information that can be used to determine which device is reporting the errors. We currently need to perform a wireshark trace to look at the individual packets to determi...
