Alarm Synchronization DataBroker

Databroker currently synchronizes objects from edge instance to cloud instance based on events occurring in Cumulocity Edge.

Same requests sent to Cumulocity Edge are sent to Cloud instance.

When losing connection in the Edge side, Databroker is enqueing data, when these queues gets full, data is automatically discarded from Queue. This can happen very often in some use cases, and this means that we could be losing some important events like Alarms.

Increasing the queue size is not a solution, we only delay when the queue gets full.

It would be nice to have following features in DataBroker:

  • When DataBroker is not able to connect to Cloud instance, resynchronize alarms again.

  • We could have a QoS over the queue. So alarms have more priority than other kind of objects.

    Thank you for raising this Idea and our apologies for not responding in a timely manner. We will consider this request for a future release, and in the meantime will be discussing potential solutions, acceptable compromises and behaviour both internally and of course with Nordex and other customers.
