Future Data Creation

Question asked by Jeck on Feb 20, 2019



I am currently trying to create a trend in PI Vision (v2017) where the Annual values of a tag are stacked together in a single trend. Ex: trends of tag1 for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 are in 1 graph that's defined from 01/01/2019 to 31/12/2019 in PI Vision. This would show how the moving value of the tag is compared to different historical data of different years. Since different timestamps are not available for PI Vision, I tried creating an analysis that stores current data and saving it in a future tag. Data today shall be stored 4 years into the future with the advanced settings on output time (so that when i backfill data from 4 years ago, the data would be reflected in PI Vision for the current year). So i created a PI point configured as a future pi point, and backfilled. Right now the Backfill is stuck at 0% and is not moving. Can someone help?


Also, if there are other ways you can recommend to do this, that would be great as well. Thanks!
