Property Value

Boolean

The value true if there is at least one change not yet applied; otherwise the value false.

Id

Gets the server-assigned unique identifier for this OpcSubscription.

C#

public long Id { get; }


Property Value

Int64

The server-assigned unique identifier for this OpcSubscription.



Remarks

C#

public long KeepAliveCount { get; set; }


Property Value

Int64

A value of zero indicates that the server have to revise the smallest supported keep-alive count. The default value of this property is 10.

The value of this property configures the keep-alive counter that counts the number of consecutive publishing cycles in which there have been no notifications to report to the client. When the maximum keep-alive count is reached, a publish request is de-queued and used to return a keep-alive message. This keep-alive message informs the client that the subscription is still active. The maximum keep-alive count may be subsequently modified. If there are no publish requests queued, the server waits for the next one to be received and sends the keep-alive immediately without waiting for the next publishing cycle.

The value of the underlying property is an UInt32 which is covered using a Int64 to assure CLS compliance. In fact this restricts the value range of this property to MinValue and MaxValue.



Remarks

The server needs to be notified about changes to this property to take effect. To do so use the ApplyChanges method.

C#

public long LifetimeCount { get; set; }


Property Value

Int64

The number of times the publishing timer have to expire without any publish request. A recommended value is at least a minimum of three times of the KeepAliveCount. The default value of this property is 100.

Remarks

The publishing interval of a subscription defines the cyclic rate at which the subscription executes. Each time it executes, it attempts to send a message to the client. Messages contain notifications that have not yet been reported to client.

The negotiated value of this property is used as the default sampling interval for the MonitoredItems assigned to this OpcSubscription.

The server needs to be notified about changes to this property to take effect. To do so use the ApplyChanges method.

RefreshConditions()

Forces the server to refresh all current conditions to synchronize the client with the server.

C#

public void RefreshConditions()



Exceptions

InvalidOperationException

The current OpcSubscription has not yet been created (see IsCreated).

OpcException

Refreshing conditions has failed. For more information see exception details. The following issues can lead to that exception: BadSubscriptionIdInvalid, BadRefreshInProgress and BadUserAccessDenied.


Remarks

The server does not need to be notified about the call to take effect, because of this method directly operates on the server.

The client will request a refresh of all condition instances that currenlty are in an interesting state (they have the retain property set to the value true). This includes previous states of a condition instance for which the server maintains branches as well.

A client would typically invoke this method when it initially connects to a server and following any situations, such as communication disruptions, in which it would require resynchronization with the server.
