    Writing to a Collective

    jonathanlow

      Is there a way to write to all members of a collective using an SDK call?  I have a manual entry spreadsheet that could be opened on any computer and need it to write out to a collective.  Trying to avoid loading ICU and BuffSS on numerous machines.

          Hello Jonathan,

           

          No, you can either fan the data using PI Buffer Subsystem or you need to send the data to each member of the collective separately.

           

          If this has to be a spreadsheet I would personally prefer the second option.

           

          Another alternative just coming into my mind would be using PI to PI Interface for the replication to secondary collective member(s) after updating them on the Primary.
