Please, I would like to know the best structure for services PI Notifications/PI Analysis. HA or Cluster?
Would recommend PI AF Analysis cluster role and PI Notification cluster role created with two nodes (Primary and Secondary) with Quorum disk. This will enable high available PI AF analysis service. You can also include PI AF service on the same box with AF service role but if you are looking for more robust solution then would recommend NLB configuration on AF service and cluster for PI AF Analysis/Notifications. If Network Load Balancer(NLB) is not an option for AF service then you can configure Cluster based on hardware.
KB00634 - High Availability (HA) options for PI Asset Framework (PI AF)
Hi Lal Badu Shaik.
Do you Know any examples of factorys that are using PI Notifications/PI Analysis in cluster? Preferably in Brazil.
Not sure in Brazil but using AF/Analysis cluster to support high availability. Please note analysis/notication service can run only on one host at a point in time and will not offer load balancing but AF service can be load balanced. It depends on the architecture.
High Availability usually comes in many forms but for PI Analysis/PI Notification, the ONLY supported solution is to configure them with Windows Failover Cluster.
AF Collective is one type of HA for AF Server that is NOT supported for PI Analysis and PI Notification. Please consult with your local OSIsoft tech people to discuss further options!
We have quite a few customers that use Windows Failover Clustering with Asset Analytics and Notifications. Did you have specific questions on the functioning?
