Who Should Take This Class
I am the typical IT professional, with responsibilities to maintain the uptime of the PI System. I need to know what the application platforms are for the PI System servers. I need to know what the data pipes look like coming into and going out of the PI System. This includes protocols, ports, and mechanisms used. I need to know what tools are available to monitor the PI System health, and what tools and methods are normally used in troubleshooting. I need to know what are and how to perform routine maintenance tasks like backup and security.
The student should be familiar with the following:
- Basic Windows and Network security (why you log in, what is a domain, etc)
- Basic directory navigation and management (using Windows Explorer, creating and finding files)
- Some familiarity with your real time data sources (control systems, PLCs, OPC)
