This is my first time posting here so short intro my name is Mike and I am an Engineer for Boise Cascade. We are investigating the abilities of RaspberryPi to host a single Ignition screen at every machine center in our plant. Some of these screens range from simple data entry that then writes to MySQL Database to information screens pulling sub 50 data points from PLC and displaying those values real time allowing the user to add data to the PLC data (IE: Reasons for downtime events) and then log them to MySQL.
so far I have been testing RasPi 2 using Open-JDK (Iced Tea Web) as a run time environment to display the screens. So far they have been slow to respond and any time it needs to sync to the gateway I get a functional lockout for 45 seconds to a minute. This lockout still occurs normally on our more powerful computers for 5-10 seconds.
Does anyone have any experience with Ignition and RasPi and have any suggestions to what I can do to optimize the environment or should I be exploring other mid-end machines for this function?
