While testing out the xml channel for PI Notifications, I am observing a lag in the trigger for periodic where I set the time period for 5 seconds. I am seeing delays of > 30 seconds in some instances. Even in the email notifications, the trigger value will be below the trheshold which causes some concern from my customers. I am not observing any strain on the servers so I do not believe I am overloaded.
My questions are:
1) Is there a limitation on the scheduler response? Is there a way to capture the exact time and value that triggered the notification. I want to use the XML channel to process events and I need to know the exact time the event was trigered and the value that triggered it.
2) Is there a max number of notifications that a scheduler can handle? I have about 170 right now and need to add about 400 more. Would it help to break this up? Also, I always keep the "begin at time" at 00:00. Is this an offset that I should stag?
