Im using the PI Web API, but i will like to know if this API, should be installed where the PI Server is running, because Im using other server to work with it, or if I need to have other features installed
The PI Web API installation can be done on a different server than the PI Data Archive.
We typically recommend to read the release note and the user guide to have all the information you need. This will tell you what are the required features needed.
They are both available here:
ps: make sure you have a good network bandwidth between the Server that host the PI Web API and the PI Data Archive. This should make performances better when the PI Web API Cache is not primed.
Remember that it is recommended that PI Web API web server be located on the same domain of the PI Data Archive and PI AF.
