So I have just been wondering what everyone out there would consider as best practice for managing interfaces as of 2017...? In particular the ever popular PI OPC DA interface.
Currently we utilise the PI Interface Status Utility and Status/IO Rate tags method. The ISU seems kinda old and clunky how it is configured and I was just thinking that there may be a better way / ideology out there.
Things we want to know generally are if the interface is connected and sending data or if its faulted.
Anything else you would recommend monitoring?
Thanks for any pointers / thoughts.
