Maximum PI performance?

Hi all,


From one of our customers I got the requirement to be able to read ~5000 values every second. These are all different points with update rate of 1sec.


My simple preliminary tests with a C# program indicate that it is possible to read ~600 values/second with PIOLEDB, and ~200 values/sec with PISDK.


What is the max performance of PI? Is it even possible to retrieve 5000 values/sec? Or is this too much and should I tell my customer to find another way?


Thanks in advance for your answer.
