Databases for WinCC OA Logging….

I have implemented a Database Logger for WinCC OA which supports different databases.

I did now a first test to compare some databases with WinCC OA and time series logging.

The logger is writing 1000 values/second to four databases in parallel: MSSQL Server, InfluxDB, Phoenix (based on Hadoop/HBase) and Oracle.

There are now about 160.000.000 values in each database. About 3.600.000 values are added every hour…

Four Ctrl-Scripts are querying data with dpGetPeriod every 10 seconds, random time frames (between 1 and 2 hours of data).

Oracle seems to be slower (i think this is related to my test environment), but the access and response times are stable with growing amount of data in the database.

remark: at 10pm the Oracle DB backup starts.
