    For PI System Administrators, it would be nice to be able to easily get a list of all buffered or unbuffered points on the PI Data Archive.

    Currently, a list of buffered points is possible to retrieve using 'piartool -bfs <id> -ptlist', but a comprehensive list would require iterating through all of the buffered sources.

    Such functionality would be nice because it would allow administrators to easily identify which data sources need to be configured for buffering, or which data sources are possibly misconfigured for buffering. It would also be a quick thing to check for points which may potentially have data loss during server downtime/server maintenance tasks.
