Understanding Compression MD and Its Impact on PI Systems

What is Compression MD and Its Role in Enhancing PI System Performance?

Compression MD is an advanced system designed to configure compression and exception settings in PI systems, targeting common challenges like slow data retrieval, missing data, and inefficient use of disk space. It examines past data to recommend optimal settings, thereby improving overall system efficiency.

How Does Compression MD Differ from Traditional PI Compression/Exception Settings?

While standard PI systems come with basic compression settings, they often fall short in handling complex data scenarios. Compression MD introduces a more dynamic approach, analyzing data patterns and applying settings that balance data integrity with storage and retrieval efficiency.

Advanced Features and Customization of Compression MD

What's New in Compression MD Version 2.0?

The latest iteration, Version 2.0, brings enhanced capabilities like support for larger PI queries and streamlined processes, reducing the need for manual intervention and adapting to user feedback for continuous improvement.

Can Compression MD Be Customized for Specific Data Storage Needs?

Yes, Compression MD is highly customizable. It offers a range of settings to accommodate different data storage preferences, allowing users to choose between higher compression with fewer data points or lower compression with more extensive data recording.

Strategic Implementation and Optimization Techniques

What Are the Goals and Strategies for Effective Compression in PI Systems?

The primary objective of compression in PI systems is to find the right balance between data detail and retrieval speed. Compression MD is designed with this goal in mind, aiming to store extensive data while maintaining efficient retrieval times.

Is Instrument Precision a Factor in Compression Settings?

While instrument precision is a valid factor, it's not always practical for systems with thousands of tags. Compression MD offers a scalable solution that caters to large-scale system requirements.

Does Implementing Compression MD Require Altering Existing System Settings?

Not necessarily. The algorithm of Compression MD is designed to work without the need for high-frequency data, which means it simplifies the process without requiring significant changes to existing compression settings.

Can Compression MDs Settings Be Applied Retroactively to Existing Data?

Applying new settings to old data is challenging in PI, but Compression MD can adjust older data to facilitate easier data retrieval, balancing between data detail and system efficiency.

The Compression MD Algorithm - A Quick Overview

What is the TLDR of the Compression MD Algorithm?

In summary, Compression MD analyses PI data over set periods, calculates typical ranges, and sets minimum data frequencies. These factors are used to adjust compression and exception settings, ensuring effective data recording and retrieval in line with business requirements.

InCentrik's iROC (Integrated Remote Operations Center)? 

iROC (Integrated Remote Operations Center) is a centralized location from which an organization can remotely manage and monitor its critical operations in real-time. iROC allows organizations to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and improve security by consolidating multiple remote operations into a view.
