  4. 4. Introduction: Working With History in Ignition From the Tag Historian Module to the SQL Bridge Module, you can do a lot with history in Ignition – and not just tag history …
  5. 5. Historian FAQ’s Back to basics: What is a data historian? • Traditionally: Storing tag values, compression, interpolation, configurable poll and storage rates • Recently: Some companies have expanded the definition to include storing event-based data as well.
  6. 6. Historian FAQ’s But you can’t do tag history with SQL databases, right? Well, let me tell you… • Ignition is used by thousands of customers in over 100 countries around the world • Used for projects with millions of tags • Used by customers with years of historical data Why have I heard that SQL databases aren’t good for historians? • All we can say is, check your sources.
  7. 7. Industry Historian FAQ’s Now I’m intrigued. Tell me, what can the Ignition historian do? • 3 million streaming tags per database, if they’re a 10s rate, with 10% of tags changing. • Throughput depends on a number of factors. • Details of throughput and storage included in companion document that can be downloaded from our website.
  8. 8. What are the advantages of SQL over traditional data historians? • Open, accessible data format • Standard technologies that plug into your IT’s existing infrastructure • Leverage existing backup and archiving tools, and IT Disaster Recovery plans Historian FAQ’s
  9. 9. Historian FAQ’s What can I do with that data after it’s in Ignition’s Tag Historian? • Dashboarding and reporting • Ad-hoc trending • Streaming to, or inclusion in, enterprise data systems

  19. 19. Data Visualization, Access & Backup Visualizing Data ● Easy Chart (Vision Module) & Power Chart (Perspective Module) ○ Ignition 8.1 introduced the Power Chart, which integrates with the Tag Historian system. This can show data from: ■ Tag Historian ■ SQL Data ○ Also in the Power Chart: Browse Tags and Annotations

  23. 23. Ignition Demo
  24. 24. Benchmarks Benchmarks • SQL Database Storage Engine • Microsoft SQL Server: 3-5 million tags • Postgres (and Timescale): 2-3 million tags • MySQL: 500k - 1 million tags • Oracle: 1 million+ tags Benchmarks based on 10s storage rates and 10% of tags changing
  25. 25. Benchmarks Assumptions • 10s rate • 10% tags changing • Microsoft SQL Server or Postgres + Timescale * The stack of Tag/IO Ignition Gateways represents more than 3
  26. 26. Benchmarks Assumptions • 10s rate • 10% tags changing See companion document for more details
  27. 27. Benchmarks • Ways to increase Tag Historian throughputs: • Set rates appropriately. Avoid anything faster than 10s unless needed. • If using an HDD-backed storage, switch to SSD • Set appropriate deadbands. If sensors have a rated accuracy, and you’re not setting deadbands around that, a lot of noise will be logged unnecessarily. • Choose a database with high throughput • In addition to the main Ignition Gateway or Tag / IO Gateways, install the Tag Historian on the same server as the SQL database, connected over the Gateway Network
  28. 28. Considerations Considerations • Storage space requirements • Database backups & Archiving • Very high throughputs • Encryption at rest
  29. 29. Considerations Materials • Look for the companion guide after this webinar.
  30. 30. Wrap-up Discussion Historical data can be a key to future organizational success.

The ability to store and query historical data easily and efficiently is vital to digital transformation. The Ignition Tag Historian Module has long provided a superb solution for this need and recent improvements have broadened the scope of what it can do.
