I have a problem whereby tags are going stale.
Ignition version 8.0.15
I’m still not sure that it isn’t a network problem, but I am unsure as to how to diagnose the Ignition system to check its usage.
I have six clients currently connected and since the last two were brought online tags have been going stale. I restart them and they are fine for a few minutes, then I lose them again.
Then when I check the others, the problem occurs on all Clients. This is not specific to one or two machines.
I have deleted pretty much everything out of the designer projects except some buttons, lamps and a string message display.
I am using indirect addressing for most of the tags.
I use a client script event on startup to verify the IP and set the machine number.
I set a client tag on page opened event to set a pathtag variable which is used for indirect addressing.
Nothing seems to be too taxing.
Single Rockwell L84S PLC with a dedicated Ethernet connection for the Clients.
Clients are Cincoze Windows 10 machines.
All brand new equipment.
The tags stay stale and I have to restart the client application to regain a connection.
I am currently using one default tag provider, but was looking into creating one tag provider per project (2-4 Clients). Will this be a help?
I am stuck for an answer.
Can someone give any pointers?
