Event Log Functions

Event Log Functions allow searching and adding to the Event Log from PINET or client nodes. The PI-API contains the following Event Log Functions:

Function Description
piel_addevnt Add an event to the Event Log
piel_evntactn Search for, edit, or delete events in the Event Log

The Event Logger archives are sized based on the usage by the standard PI software. Applications which also add events need to consider enlarging the Archive. For complete instructions on this process, see PI System Installation/Update Instructions under "Increasing the Size of the Event Logger Archives."
