Hi, Is there a way to 'turn on' tracing on PI Server to see detail logging for records (including values inserted) inserted into PI?
The current PI Server itself does not have detail tracing at the event level (e.g. insert value). Unless there is an error (which you can see from PI Message Log), the successful event insert will not be logged, you can only confirm it by looking at the data in the snapshot or archive.
On the client side, most PI Interfaces allows option to run in debug mode to trace events being sent to PIServer. For the case of AFSDK clients, there will be minimum tracing capability in the upcoming release (version 2.6), but fully functioning detail logging/tracing is planned to be in the one after 2.6.
PI Audit Database
I'm not sure if you can get new event insert through PI Audit, if I remember correctly it's mainly for event edit or delete.
Optionally, through AFSDK, you can sign up for events update on a particular PIPoint through PIDataPipe.
