    Integrating PI with Webmethods

    mfiguero

      We are planning to integrate webMethods AG with PI.  We are analyzing different options and we would like to know if someone already integrates PI with Webmethods AG. We are looking to update PI values through webMethods. Some of the alternatives being considered are JDBC, OLEDB Provider and SDK. Someone knows the best performer between them?

       

      Thanks in advance

          Can you pls elaborate on the nature of data,  amount of data, frequency of data, data flow etc.

              Pi server will be receiving between 20- 30 measurements or data to be inserted per seconds. The frequency is in a range of milliseconds.

                  20-30 values per second - for how many Tags?  What's your data source?  Why have you ruled out our out-of-box interfaces and trying to write something custom using webmethods?

                      Any of the tags in the PI server may be updated (At least more than 10000 tags will be created). The 20 or 30 values could be for the same tag or different tags. We could not find out of the box that integrates with webMethods or any adapter in Webmethods for PI. We have experience integrating Webmethdos with other systems .NET based and we are planning using the same approach for PI. But regarding all the Data Access layers provided by PI, we would like to see if others users already implemented a similar approach.

                       

                      Thanks

                          We need a clear understanding of the amount of data you'll be writing to PI. From what you have so far, do mean 20-30 values per sec per Tag for 10,000 tags?  Or, is it 20-30 values every second for any of the 10,000 Tags?  

                           

                          Re. "frequency is in the range of millseconds" - do you mean  that the precision of the timestamp is in the milliseconds?

                           

                          What is the source and form of your data?  

                           

                          Have you looked at our UFL interface which includes support  for XML data?

                              I am newbie with PI for that reason I could be missing additional interface to look into. The data is realtime data. Realtime data are  processed and   sent to PI system through webMethods. The amount of data mean 20 or 30 values for differents tags or the same tag. It doesn't mean that we will be updating 10000 tags in a sec. Only 20 or 30 tags per secs. Yes, the frequency of the timestamp is milliseconds.

                               

                              We are trying to find the best performer in the scenario described above?

                               

                              Where I can find more information about UFL? Is this a realtime loader?
