Big Data Event Source/Sink
Intelligent Plant's Big Data Service (part of the App Store Connect installation) is employed by Data Core as an event source and sink. Using it as a sink can be useful if we wish to define a local collecting area.
For example, if we're monitoring an OPC data-source, our ultimate destination may be a Alarm Analysis. We can start collecting data immediately, while fine-tuning Alarm Analysis import rules.
The data is stored to Big Data in monthly indices. The index name is derived automatically from event source.
- Big Data Windows Service must be running
If using Big Data Event Sink, be sure to have sufficient disk space. If dealing with high volumes of data, consider contacting Intelligent Plant to request a custom installation of App Store Connect employing a dedicated data drive.
