In my PIAF-based application, I am creating elements.  As part of the element creation, PI tags are also created.  Naturally, the question comes up as to what to do when it is time to delete elements.  Here are the 2 questions I have:


  1. What is OSIsoft's best practice for deleting elements and the tags that were created with them?  In other words, is this recommended, or should tags remain even when elements are deleted?
  2. If tag cleanup is recommended by OSIsoft, what is the C# process for deleting elements and tags?
