Align all developer tools to have access to the same data

The different PI developer tools do not have the ability to retrieve the same data. For example, a user cannot retrieve PI connection statistics from the AFSDK. That is only accessible via PowerShell (Get-PIConnectionStatistics).

In C# or PI WebAPI I should be able to retrieve the same data that PowerShell can. This allows me to not be locked into only using PowerShell.

    We have a product that monitors PI Points to record versions and who changed the configuration. This is still using PI SDK, since there's no access to the PI Server Message Log using PI AF SDK.

    Would love to get access to this using a more modern method!

    I agree, developer tools should be able to extract the same data. But I think this is mostly in part due to a design issue.

    AVEVA needs to adopt an API first approach to the developer experience. In that scenario, it will be easier to develop SDKs for various languages and a CLI, since they'd all use the same API as the backend. Most platforms have been using this approach for years now.
