    AF SDK, InterpolatedValues, Small values set and timeout/error catching.


      Hello PI Squared community.  I was working with the AFSDK and the interpolatedvalues function & 99% of the PI tags and historical data pull worked correctly.  I came across a PI tag that only has about 8 values in it from 1/1/2015 to 1/1/2016 (a years worth of values, all 8 of them).  When my code started to run, I got RPC errors, timeout errors and the PIARCHSS.exe just chews up PI server CPU time.  At times I had to kill the PIARCHSS.exe and restart it.  The following is the code I run, I would perform a data from that looks like the following:

      Start 1/1/2015, End 1/1/2016, Time Interval 15m.


      Again let me restate the problem: when the myPiPoint.InterpolatedValues runs against my PI tag that only has 8 values in it, my code has RPC errors and the PI server has problems - so how would you trap for these errors that are occurring or is there a better way to check that a PI tag has good values to be interpolated by AF.


      Here is the code I am using:

          Function GetPiTagHistory(startdate As String, enddate As String, pitag As String, afsp As AFTimeSpan) As List(Of String)
              Dim _vals As New List(Of String)
                  RaiseEvent MessageEvent(Me, New DataAccessLayer.Message() With {.MessageText = "Processing PI Tag: " & pitag})
                  Dim myPiPoint As PIPoint = PIPoint.FindPIPoint(myPIServer, pitag)
                  Dim ssInterpolated As AFValues = myPiPoint.InterpolatedValues(New AFTimeRange(startdate, enddate), afsp, "", False)
                  If ssInterpolated.Count = 0 Then
                      Throw New System.Exception("Sequence Contains no elements")
                  End If
                  piHistDict.Add(pitag, ssInterpolated)
              Catch ex As Exception
                  RaiseEvent MessageEvent(Me, New DataAccessLayer.Message() With {.MessageText = ex.Message, .ErrorOccured = True})
                  Return Nothing
              End Try
              Return _vals
          End Function


      PI Values for my bad PI tag:
