PIPointListInterpolatedValues Method

Retrieves interpolated values over the specified time range at the specified sampling interval.

Namespace:  OSIsoft.AF.PI
Assembly:  OSIsoft.AFSDK (in OSIsoft.AFSDK.dll) Version:
public IEnumerable<AFValues> InterpolatedValues(
	AFTimeRange timeRange,
	AFTimeSpan interval,
	string filterExpression,
	bool includeFilteredValues,
	PIPagingConfiguration pagingConfig


Type: OSIsoft.AF.TimeAFTimeRange
The bounding time range for the interpolated values request. If the StartTime is earlier than the EndTime, the resulting values will be in time-ascending order, otherwise they will be in time-descending order.
Type: OSIsoft.AF.TimeAFTimeSpan

The Sample interval. If specified in hours, minutes, seconds, or milliseconds, the time intervals will be evenly spaced UTC time intervals. Longer interval types are interpreted using wall clock rules and are time zone dependent. For example, an interval created with the string "24h" means using an evenly spaced 24 UTC hour interval between each event. On the other hand, an interval created with the string "1d" would return an interval shorter or longer than 24 hours if the interval encompasses a Daylight Savings Time change.

When a positive interval is specified, the interval calculation begins at the earliest bounding time in the timeRange and applies the interval repeatedly in time ascending direction to generate the calculation intervals.

If a negative interval is specified, the interval calculation begins at the latest bounding time in the timeRange and applies the interval repeatedly in time descending direction to generate the calculation intervals. Note that the order of values returned will still be reflected by the timeRange, regardless of the interval sign.

Type: SystemString
A filter expression that follows the performance equation syntax.
Type: SystemBoolean
Specify to indicate that values which fail the filter criteria are present in the returned data at the times where they occurred with a value set to a "Filtered" enumeration value with bad status. Repeated consecutive failures are omitted.
Type: OSIsoft.AF.PIPIPagingConfiguration
Contains the paging configuration parameters for the request.

Return Value

Type: IEnumerableAFValues

An enumerable of AFValues for each PIPoint in the list. The results are not guaranteed to match the order of the PIPointList, and duplicate points in the list will not produce a duplicate result. The results can be mapped back to the corresponding PI Point using the PIPoint property on each result.

The order of the results are predictable; however, if you need the results in the same order as the attribute list, then consider using a dictionary keyed by PI Point to construct a list in the same order.

The points in the list are broken up by their corresponding PI Data Archive. A bulk call is made against each PI Data Archive in parallel. The results are made available as they are returned from the PI Data Archive in the order that the bulk calls were made.

The following example shows a list of points including duplicates from three different PI Data Archives:

PI PointPI Data Archive

This table shows the order that the results would be returned:

PI PointPI Data Archive

Since the first point is on the Contoso PI Data Archive, it is the first PI Data Archive to receive a bulk call; therefore, all Contoso point results will be returned first. Duplicate points do not produce a duplicate result, so the duplicate Contoso Lobby_Room_Temperature does not produce a second return value. After the Contoso results have been returned, the Northwind results are returned followed by the AdventureWorks results.

OperationCanceledExceptionWhen an error occurs that prevents the operation from proceeding. Check the Error property on the pagingConfig object for more specific error information.
ArgumentNullExceptionWhen pagingConfig is .
The following table illustrates the interaction between timeRange and interval with the timestamp interval calculations and order of returned values:
Time RangeIntervalTimestamps returned in AFValues
Ascending (Y to T)Positive (5h)Y, Y+5h, Y+10h, Y+15h, Y+20h
Descending (T to Y)Positive (5h)Y+20h, Y+15h, Y+10h, Y+5h, Y
Ascending (Y to T)Negative (-5h)T-20h, T-15h, T-10h, T-5h, T
Descending (T to Y)Negative (-5h)T, T-5h, T-10h, T-15h, T-20h

Note Notes to Callers
This method, property, or class is only available in the .NET 4 version of the SDK.

Important note Important
This method will use a single bulk Remote Procedure Call if the PI Data Archive supports it, otherwise it will issue individual RPCs in parallel. Results are available for enumeration as they returned from the PI Data Archive.

Important note Important
When individual RPCs are issued in parallel, each RPC is made using the caller's security context. When making these calls while impersonating, the thread or runtime must be configured to propagate the impersonation across these asynchronous points (see the SecurityContext documentation for details).

Important note Important
The returned enumerable collection can be enumerated one time. As the collection is enumerated, the internal data structures are disposed. Any attempt to reset or enumerate a second time will result in an exception.

Note Notes to Callers
This call might use a background task to complete some of its work. See the Threading Overview for some matters to consider when execution transitions to another thread.

// Holds the results keyed on the associated point
Dictionary<PIPoint, AFValues> resultsMap = new Dictionary<PIPoint, AFValues>();

// Results should be sent back for 100 tags in each page.
PIPagingConfiguration config = new PIPagingConfiguration(PIPageType.TagCount, 100);

    IEnumerable<AFValues> listResults = pointList.InterpolatedValues(
        timeRange, span, null, false, config);

    foreach (AFValues pointResults in listResults)
        // Map the results back to the point
        resultsMap[pointResults.PIPoint] = pointResults;
catch (OperationCanceledException)
    // Errors that occur during bulk calls get trapped here
    // The actual error is stored on the PIPagingConfiguration object
catch (Exception otherEx)
    // Errors that occur in an iterative fallback method get trapped here
