Configure PICLIENT.INI for 32- and 64-bit Buffering

The general steps to configure piclient.ini for buffering in environments with both 32-bit and 64-bit PI API versions are as follows:

  1. Determine the types of interfaces to buffer data for: 32-bit, 64-bit, or both.
  2. Decide which buffering service to use: 32-bit API Buffer Server, 64-bit API Buffer Server, or PI Buffer Subsystem (32-bit only).
  3. Based on the above choices, identify the piclient.ini files required: 32-bit, 64-bit, or both.
  4. 4. Set the required parameters in piclient.ini. Refer to the scenarios that follow for details.
