Fastest way to retrieve all tags / large amount of tags

which is the fastest way to retrieve a list of all tags (or a large amount of tags) in the PI Server (by using PI SDK)? A simple search using the pattern "*" is the first thing we tried, but takes about 2 minutes to complete (130000 Tags).


Maybe there is a trick (reading tables directly, chosing different search criteria, etc.)? At this point, I just need the tag names in a simple list. Other details like attributes would be read only on demand.


Thank you.
