Problem with Meta Data Refresh using GEP

Sep 19, 2013 at 3:46 PM
We have a Gateway Exchange Protocol setup between two instances of openPDC. The publisher server is running openPDC v1.5.207. The subscriber server is running openPDC v1.5.244.

We have Meta Data Refresh currently enabled on the subscribing server. We get all our PMUs and meta data on this server, except for the ID Codes of the PMUs. All ID codes on the subscriber get set to 0, rather than being set as the ID Code on the publisher server.

Is this a bug? Is this the normal operation of Meta Data Refresh?

Don't think the ID code get transmitted - this is an oversight - we will add this.

This has been corrected with GSF check-in 87448 ( It will be rolled into next openPDC build and therefore available in the meta-data.

Is this update available in the openPDC 2.0 RC2?

Yes, it is.

Below is the existing Gateway Transport connection string we are using on the subscriber openPDC Server. Can a coordinator please provide an example of how this new change with the ID Codes would be added to the connection string?

transportprotocol=tcp;server=;islistener=false;interface=;internal=true;autoConnect=true;bufferSize=2097152;outputMeasurements={FILTER ActiveMeasurements WHERE SourceNodeID IS NOT NULL}

As a result of this change, ID codes are now included by default as part of the metadata exchange. Additionally, ID codes that get transmitted trickle down to the configuration of the systems receiving the data. You should not need to modify your subscriber connection strings.

If your subscribers are not receiving ID codes, you may be overriding the metadata tables in your publisher connection string such that ID code is not being transmitted.

Thanks Stephen. As we get to testing this in the next month, I will let you know if anything comes up.
