Im not sure if there is a bugs in the buffer version 184.108.40.206. This because i keep receiving and error message in buffer that mention [-5- Tag Not Found and the Point ID is 0.
Anyone have the same problem as me?
It sounds like pibufss might have a tag in its cache that was deleted from the PI Data Archive. We have an enhancement item to address such an issue logged as WI 123709
If this is the case, we'd need to get pibufss to clear its cache by re-registering with pisnapss. Two possible ways to do this would be
1) Restart pibufss
2) Run commands: "pibufss -bc stop" followed by "pibufss -bc start" -> Unregisters and reregisters the buffer, and will not result in data loss (data will accumulate in the buffer between commands)
but the error keep occurs after you restart the server. Is this consider bug also in PI Buffer Sub system?
If the issue ends up being similar to what I initially described, then yes this is a bug in the PI Buffer Subsystem. However, given your statement that following a restart of pibufss the errors continue to flow, I am not positive that we can classify it under that. Given the details on this work item, the PI Buffer Subsystem should be re-registering itself and its cached point list with the PI Data Archive on startup, which would remove such an unresolved point.
Can you run a command on the interface node? In a command prompt from the %pihome%\bin directory:
pibufss -sp > pibufss_sp.txt
This will save the output to a text file pibufss_sp.txt in the \bin folder. Take a look and let me know if you see any tags listed at the bottom as "Unresolved Points"
This only happen if there is a failover interface configuration for independent interface no such error will appear on buffer.
attached the screen shot.
Great - thanks for providing the screenshots.
It appears that we have an unresolved point cached in our PI Buffer Subsystem. What we'll need to do is perform a pibufss reset on the buffer registration, which will lift the buffer's hold on all tags, and force it to recreate it's list.
1) On the PI Data Archive node, open a command prompt and navigate to the %PISERVER%\adm directory.
2) Run the command: piartool -bfs
We will locate the appropriate buffer registration, and make note of it's 'RegistrationID' value
In my example, I am looking for a buffer registration from server ARNOLDPALMER, and I find it has a RegID=15
3) From the same %PISERVER%\adm directory, run the command: piartool -bfs <RegID from step 2> -reset
Example: piartool -bfs 15 -reset
You should now see the PointCount attribute go to 0, meaning that all tags in the buffer's cache have been cleared.
Can you post some examples of where you see the message, and the message itself? Context is probably important to understand why you are getting this error. Also, 220.127.116.11 is not a release version of PI Buffer Subsystem - did you perhaps get this version from something else? If you are running PI Buffer Subsystem, you can get the version from the control panel, or you can run the command "pibufss -v" to get the version directly from the executable file.
I'd guess that 18.104.22.168 is the version of Buffering Manager. Easy mixup. As Gavin mentions you can look in Add or Remove Programs to see the version details
the buffer subsystem used is 22.214.171.124 and the buffer manager is 126.96.36.199
i already run the one u mention above. This error still occurs after restart. Do you have any idea why?
Do you have any idea why this happen? i already try the one suggested by Taylor but the error still appear after restarting the machine.
