How to TURN OFF PI Buffer Subsystem or Buffering for only one Interface?

Hi All,

 

I have couple of interfaces running in the system, I have mixture of interfaces running on 32-but and 64-bit applicaiton. I'm trying to configure a interface to connect with PI Server directly without Buffering, but its not allowing me.

 

Following test which was carried:

 

TEST 1: - FAILED

64 Bit - made BUFFERING=0 in piclient.ini in Dat folder

32 Bit - made BUFFERING=1 in piclient.ini in Dat folder

Result:

64 bit interface started sending data but 32 bit stopped sending data to PI Server. When I tried opening the buffer manager it was showing it has been shutdown due to disabling in 64 bit piclient.ini. Then enabled Buffering=1 in both the 64 bit and 32 bit interface. Data started flowing though, but failed to meeting the required of configuring one interface without buffering.

 

TEST 2: - FAILED

64 Bit - made BUFFERING=1 in piclient.ini in Dat folder

32 Bit - made BUFFERING=1 in piclient.ini in Dat folder

Removed the buffer dependency for 64 bit interface

Result:

64 bit interface stopped sending data

32 bit interface is sending data.

 

It would be great if anyone can provide your advice, if I'm missing something please.

 

Thanks

Yasin
