Type: OSIsoft.AF.PIPIServer
The PIServer to search for the desired PIPoint objects.

Use FindPIPointsAsync(PIServer, IEnumerablePIPointQuery, IEnumerableString, CancellationToken) or FindPIPointsAsync(PIServer, IListIEnumerablePIPointQuery, IEnumerableString, CancellationToken) to search for points with wildcard name or names, respectively.
attributeNames (Optional)
Type: System.Collections.GenericIEnumerableString
The list of PIPoint attribute names to be loaded from the server as the PIPoint objects are found. The GetAttribute(String) method can be used to access the loaded attribute values. If , then no attribute values are loaded for the returned PIPoints.
cancellationToken (Optional)
Type: System.ThreadingCancellationToken
A cancellation token used to abort processing before completion. Passing the default CancellationToken.None will run to completion or until the PIConnectionInfo.OperationTimeOut period elapses.
