1.36.2 - July 09, 2018
New in 1.36.2
- Batch Record Datasource Class ... read moreThe Batch Record Datasource allows to fetch, extend and contextualize batch records from other systems like OSIsoft PI (PI-Batch) or AspenTech (Batch.21, APRM). In addition it provides an „External Tags“ mode, which allows for building a virtual batch record from monitored tags of either the above mentioned PIMS or any OPC-compliant data source.
- IT Log Classes ... read moreSeveral classes have been added in order to support data center and IT system monitoring. Data is collected over various interfaces, such as Structured Files, ODBC, HTTP, HTTPS or Powershell invocation. The IT Log Datasource class then allows to harmonize, extend and contextualize the data and transforms it into a standardized master schema in order to analyze it for performance. The IT Log Analyzer inspects the data from those sources periodically, aggregates the data by topology and location and creates data-driven dashboards automatically. Pre-set configurations exist for many well known systems such as Litespeed, NetApp, Networker, Tivoli, Veeam, MAX-DB, R-MAN, Linux and Solaris Backups, Doubletake File Replication, HP StoreOnce and NetApp Storage Management. Any new data source can be added by configuration.

Release Notes for system:inmation 1.34
1.34.1 - June 11, 2018
Important note before updating to 1.34.1
- 1.34 sees the introduction of changes to the Web API configuration and the introduction of the Web API server model object ... read moreIf your Web API service is configured to options other than the default (default hostname, port and so profile), we recommend that you make a copy of the Web API config file (found in the inmation.root/webapi directory) prior to updating. The configuration details can then be transfered to the new config file and Web API object to reconfigure the Web API after updating. More details can be found here
Configuration Changes when updating to Visual KPI v5.53.3 and above
- system:inmation 1.34 is fully compatible with Visual KPI v5.53.3, however some configuration changes need to be made manually in Visual KPI Server Manager. ... read morePlease visit here for information on how to correctly configure Visual KPI Server Manager v5.53.3 after upgrade.
New in 1.34.1
- ESI Support ... read moreESI (Enhanced Script Infrastructure) is a GitHub-based collaboration platform between inmation, system integrators, educational institutes and end customers. It allows for Lua code collaboration between multiple parties. In this release, the first eight ESI libraries have been merged with the server code base. A big thank you, to all involved contributors!
- Console Display ... read moreThe new Console Display in DataStudio allows for faster testing of Lua scripts against an inmation Core object. It has several features addressing the typical needs of users developing custom applications to run within system:inmation. The code being executed does not need to be embedded in an existing object, which makes testing much faster. Another handy feature is the Console Display supports drag & drop operations in order to automatically generate object modification code (such as create, upsert etc.).
- PI-Bridge Package (OSI PI SDK Support) ... read moreThe PI-Bridge package is introduced. It covers all features of the PI SDK and the PI AF SDK. This allows system:inmation to access tag configuration, real-time data, historical data, event frames, batch records as well as the Asset Framework configuration. The package can be installed on any Connector host and will be automatically distributed with the next release.
- History Transporter Class ... read moreThe History transporter allows massive amounts of historical data to be fetched from external systems such as OPC HDA servers, OSI PI and Aspentech IP.21. The PI-System is now natively supported by the PI-Bridge package as one option in the class. History Transporter comes with different operation modes, safe scheduling and persistent state, which allows the system to automatically continue a large transaction even after component restart (or update). The class has broad diagnostic capabilities, so that users are informed about the details of the background process at all times.
- SchedulerItem Class ... read moreThis new class in inmation can be used in all models and components. It has a dynamic property which raises an edge when a certain time event occurs. SchedulerItem objects can interact with ActionItems or HistoryTransporters and the like, in order to execute certain tasks at very exact time boundaries. The scheduling options are comparable to the option with recurring meetings in MS Outlook but broken down to the “By Second” level. A typical usage would be the triggering of shift reports or other summary reports.
Improved in 1.34.1
- Extensive Additions to inmation Performance Counters ... read moreOver 70 new Performance Counters have been added to the system in order to even enhance self and health-monitoring of the entire system.
- Redundant Item ... read moreHistory calls on redundant items now merge the history from all linked items and return the history using the same logic as for real-time data. For this reason redundant items no longer store their own history.
- Object State ... read moreinmation Objects, residing in the various service components, now better report on their state in DataStudio. An open circle indicates a state, which has not yet been confirmed by the inmation Core.
- Extended Filter Options with the OPC UA Server ... read moreThe individual inmation OPC UA Server instance can now be restricted to only expose certain parts of the object model.
- Siemens PLC S7-300/400 Datasource ... read moreThe Datasource class has several improvements to the Siemens S7 interface. There is now support for reading time and date tags of S7-300/400 and S7-1500 PLCs and writing to S7-300/400 PLC tags. Writing arrays will be supported in an upcoming release.
- Script Editor improved debug window ... read moreThe script editor now has an improved debug panel allowing the user to scroll through large output values (such as JSON documents) using the zoom window. Other small improvents for inspection convenience have also been made.
- Image system ... read moreThe image subsystem has been further improved for performance and robustness.
- SQL Catalog ... read moreThe SQL Catalog has been improved for performance. The inmation.SQLCatalog library has been improved in order to support queries on Custom Attributes.

Fixed in 1.32.2
- Fixed issue with Table Holder items receiving non-standard format JSON as value when created as default. ... read moreCreating a Table Holder item without providing data for the table would by default give a non-standard JSON table as the Item value. This invalid format caused problems with the DKJSON Lua library used by system:inmation to parse JSON tables. The fix prevents this happening in newly created Table Holder items in v1.32.2, however any default Table Holder items created in v1.32.1 need to be manually reset by opening the Table Data property in the Object Properties panel and clicking Apply. This will correct the JSON format of the property. (TFS #5150)
- Issue with Web API service becoming unresponsive after installation or update ... read moreIn certain circumstances, this issue could result in the Web API failing to initialize properly after a fresh installation or update to 1.32, creating problems with the connection to Visual KPI.
