I have a wireless network link that I have two edge servers talking to my full ignition server. Under normal operation that link drops out for minutes at a time, and since the data doesn’t NEED to be updated that quickly, and the edge server buffers historical data, I want to figure out the best settings to prevent that link from faulting during these momentary outages.
I talked to support and they suggested increasing number of pings to timeout, and I changed from 30 to 60, which you would think would work, but doesn’t seem to make a difference. Have any of you guys used edge servers over sketchy connections and figured out how to best extend timeouts.
Ideally, I really only want it to fault if the connection is down for say 10 minutes. Of course I can extend alarm delays, but faulting creates the quality overlay for brief faults, and I really only want it to show that quality overlay in the >10 minute scenario (unrecoverable fault).
