Hello Ignition’s passionated!
We have a KepServer connecting to 17 PLC. These PLC are running complex machine and have multiple tags. The most complicated one have more than 2 millions tags…
Now in Kep, we did “create tags” for all the PLC and we end up with a 800 MB config file. Also, Kep need about 4 minutes to start and almost the same to stop.
But in fact, we will read maximum 2000 tags per PLC. We could manually create only the required tags but it could become a nightmare to manage.
Let’s say I switch to the OPC-UA server of Ignition… How are managed the tags in it? Will I end-up with a ultra big gateway backup? Any other toughts?
