Monitoring Connector health

Support for health tags (similar to UniInt health tags), Windows performance counters, or any other way to bring Connector status and health information into PI tags to put them side-by-side with Interface health monitoring.

Allow restarting on a data source basis instead of having to restart the connector

Example 1 - OPC If a new connection needs to be made to one OPC Server, restarting the connector forces all data sources (and potentially connections to multiple OPC Servers) to be restarted. Example 2 - UFL If my web service is down and I do...

Control which PI/AF servers each data source sends data to.

Right now, for one instance of the connector, all configured data sources will send data to all configured PI Data Archives and PI AF Servers. It is all or nothing. Due to the fact that you cannot have multiple instances of the same connector on a...

Output tags on connectors

Sometimes we need to send data back to our sources. Connectors should support output tags

Ability for PI Connectors to create future data point

Add the ability for PI Connectors to create future data point. This is especially useful for the PI Connector for UFL. The current workaround is to manually create the point as a StoredValues=FutureData.

Support Assigning Point Sources for Connectors

Connectors currently assign point sources; this is not user configurable.  In addition, all connector of like kind get the same point source.  This makes it difficult to determine which tags "belong" to which connector node.  Users would like to b...

PI Connector Relay support write modes

While writing data to PI through the connector relay there seems to be no option to control the write mode . E.g."[-109] Value at This Time Already Exists" is shown in the logs if the archive already contains an event with the same timestamp. The ...

PI Connector for IEC 60870-5-104 bi-directional between SCADA and PI

RWE Power AG “But one really important feature we need, is the ability to write back from PI into the SCADA system Until now, we couldn’t find anything about this (important) functionality. So our question is if we can use this connector bi-dire...

Option to remove/edit template prefix

Allow for connectors to create templates without the fixed prefix. E.g. The option to name an AF template "templatename" and not "UFL.templatename"
Guest almost 2 years ago in PI Connectors / General 0 No Status

Have option to enable exception on Connectors.

There are use cases where data is sent over networks with latency (satellite link, for example) so being able to filter out noise at the connector is important.  This is also important when a connector sends data to a local PI Server in the field ...
