I need to test real time data access from PI Server. For this I need to load data into PI Server. What tools or approaches can I use to upload data into PI Server
If you do not have a real data source, I would recommend using one of our AF example kits available here:
Asset Based PI Example Kits
You will get an AF Database with simulated data related to e.g.Wind Turbines plant, that you can work on.
There are many approaches but I found PI Analysis to be the best approach in newer PI Systems. You can use the Rand() function to generate random data and output to an Attribute that creates and writes the data to a PI tag. Once random read-time data is working, you can back-fill the data as far back as you need.
