I’m trying to figure out why we keep getting these errors, and what we can do to fix it.
We have a perspective project we use to display dashboards on our plant floor. We discovered this morning that they were not working, we couldn’t load the dashboards, the project page won’t load.
Looking at the log we found that we are getting tons of “Flood limit tripped, starting 5000ms cooldown.” warnings. The log properties seem to reference various perspective controls we are using.
A lot of what we’re doing with these properties the log is referencing is pulling a tag name out of the database with a named query and then using that tag to pull a value like this:
We recently updated from 8.0.10 to 8.0.14 but it’s possible we’ve always had these problems and didn’t notice it. We have 2 plants that have their own server with ignition on it, both plants are getting these errors but only one of them is not able to display the dashboard.
I’ve searched the forum and these threads seems somewhat related. The first one seems like it could be the same problem but there’s no solution on the post. The second one maybe has a solution, but I’m not sure how to apply it to our situation. We’re using url parameters to control what the database query should return, so the results should never return an invalid tag, and even if they did, why does that have to cause the flood limit to be tripped?
Any help would be appreciated!
