Official stable release of version 1.5 of SIEGate (v1.5.2).

See full change log since last release.

Note: the PMU Connection Tester is no longer automatically included with the installer package and will need to be installed separately:

https://github.com/GridProtectionAlliance/PMUConnectionTester/releases

New Features and Improvements

  • GSF.TimeSeries.UI.WPF: Modified the Measurement Groups Page to automatically issue a ReloadConfig command to update the security context in SIEGate's data publisher so that group based changes get automatically applied to data subscribers.
  • GrafanaAdapters: Added full set of aggregation and operational functions that operate on a per-series or per-set for all data sources that implement Grafana interfaces. See documentation.
  • LogFileViewer: Added new enhanced general logging capabilities along with a new application, Log File Viewer, that is used to analyze logs.
  • PowerCalculations: Added calculators for wrapping angle difference and line impedance with resistance, reactance, conductance and susceptance results - includes both rectangular and polar based outputs.
  • PowerCalculations: Updated average frequency calculator to (1) exclude NaN values from average results, (2) allow definable unreasonable thresholds, (3) improve flat-line value detection to throw out repeating values, and (4) added flag to AverageFrequency calculator to allow unreasonable results, e.g., zero, to be reported as NaN.
  • GSF.PhasorProtocols.UI: Updated OutputStream data model to accommodate auto-assignment of "auto public config frame flag" based on current channel definitions
  • GSF.TimeSeries: Added up-time statistics for system, subscriber, publisher, input streams and output streams.
  • GSF.TimeSeries: Added a new enhanced version of the time-series special compression algorithm, automatically enabled for new connections, used with the Gateway Exchange Protocol that uses much less bandwidth. Add ; compression=true to connection string of existing GEP subscriptions to enable.
  • GSF.TimeSeries: Created a lookup cache for the main adapter meta-data using dictionary based lookups. This improved load times for input adapters on large systems (e.g., from 160 seconds to less than 1 second in some cases).
  • GSF.TimeSeries: Updated measurement definitions to carry meta-data as part of measurement key with an internal reference inside measurement implementations to reduce total memory footprint requirements for new measurements.
  • GSF.Core: Added a static timer class to allow many hundreds of scheduled events that run at the same interval to be associated with a single wait event instead of creating a new timer for each event (e.g., as hundreds of devices needing to check statistics every second) - this alleviates thread pool exhaustion that can occur when hundreds of timer events get executed at the same time.

Important Fixes

  • PhasorProtocolAdapters: Fixed issue in custom IEEE C37.118 concentrator output streams where phasors were being reordered if a cell had 10 or more phasors.
  • PhasorProtocolAdapters: Updated IEEE C37.118 concentrator to allow an explicit config frame 1 to be returned when requested instead of defaulting to config frame 2 - this corrects issues with SEL RTAC devices connecting to openPDC.
  • PhasorProtocolAdapters: Corrected issue for output stream mappings when using PMU source device acronyms that are longer than 16 characters.
  • DataSubscriber: Updated measurements received with GEP to apply any linear adjustments defined in the local configuration.
  • GSF.Core: Added code to ensure that log files won't become deadlocked if an error occurs during rollover.
  • GSF.TimeSeries: Updated DataSubscriber meta-data synchronization to exclude calculation and alarm signals from the device measurement removal processing such that if a local subscription creates new calculations associated with a subscribed device, the locally created measurements will not get automatically removed at the next synchronization.

Important Fixes

  • Improved performance of secure implementations of Gateway Exchange Protocol for access control list lookups in service and manager implementations
  • Better phasor reduction management in manager, output streams and GEP meta-data synchronization (e.g., reducing output stream to only include positive sequence phasors)
  • Fixed issues in openHistorian 1.0 data and statistic archive deployments with potential race conditions between rollovers and reading data to prevent data access issues
  • Outage logs now properly serialize stop timestamps in UTC ensuring proper data gap recovery operations

Remote Console Access for Users with Viewer Roles

A new command has been added to the remote console to allow messages to be filtered down to desired results, see Filter command syntax below. In order for users with view role access to access the remote console, the filter command will need to be added to the included security resources in the main configuration file.

The simplest way to add this command is to run the XML Configuration Editor application that can be found on the start menu and add the Filter command before the Settings command in the IncludedResources configuration key in the securityProvider section of the configuration settings:

<securityProvider>
    <add name="IncludedResources" value="UpdateSettings,UpdateConfigFile=Special; Filter,Settings,Schedules,Help,Status,Version,Time,User,Health,List,Invoke,ListCommands=*; Processes,Start,ReloadCryptoCache,ReloadSettings,ResetHealthMonitor,Connect,Disconnect,Initialize,ReloadConfig,Authenticate,RefreshRoutes,TemporalSupport,LogEvent=Administrator,Editor; *=Administrator"
        description="Semicolon delimited list of resources to be secured along with role names." encrypted="false" />
</securityProvider>

Filter Command Syntax

Filters status messages coming from the service.

   Usage:
       Filter [ { -List |
                  -Include <FilterDefinition> |
                  -Exclude <FilterDefinition> |
                  -Remove <ID> } ... ]

       Filter -?

       FilterDefinition ::= Type { Alarm | Warning | Information } |
                            Message <FilterSpec> |
                            Regex <FilterSpec>

   Options:
       -List        Displays a list of the client's active filters
       -Include     Defines a filter matching messages to be displayed
       -Exclude     Defines a filter matching messages to be suppressed
       -Remove      Removes a filter
