Opinum usage limits
If you have a specific use case that you need Opinum to support beyond these limits, please contact our support team email@example.com.
Opinum DataHub supports the following browsers:
- Chrome from version 70
- Microsoft Edge from version from version 80
- Firefox from version 60
- Safari from version 13
- Opera from version 50
For security reasons Opinum Data hub does not support any version of Internet Explorer, including all Windows 10 versions.
For security reasons, Opinum Data Hub is starting to deprecate support of TLS 1.0 and 1.1. This will happen in 2 phases :
API (except push): From June, 12 2023, Opinum is deprecating support of TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Opinum now supports the TLS protocol from version 1.2 and above for connection the the API.
Push API : In Q4 2023 Opinum will no longer support TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Opinum will only support TLS from version 1.2 for API connection.
We advise you to upgrade to version TL 1.3, the most recent that was released in August 2018.
The mobile app is available for Android (6.0.0 and up) only. If you need a version of the mobile app for Iphone contact your account manager.
File size limits
The maximum upload file size is 1 megabyte, for all files except Opinum Standard Data File format, of any extension, uploaded by any method in Opinum.
The maximum upload file size is 20 megabytes, for Opinum Standard data File, uploaded by any method in Opinum.
Above this size Opinum can't guarantee than the file will be correctly ingested and processed.
A maximum of 1 000 connections per day are allowed on the FTP. Above 1 000 connections a warning will be sent to the client to decrease the number of connections under 1 000 per day. If the connections don't decrease after 48 hours, the access to the FTP will be suspended on the account, until the necessary is done.
If you need more than 1 000 connections per day, you should send your data by HTTP on the API. Learn more about Opinum API
The files uploaded on the FTP are ingested at the frequency of 1 file every 2 seconds. For example, if 1 000 files are uploaded at the same time, they will be ingested into Opisense in 33 minutes.
Any massive upload that exceeds the usual account data ingestion must be monitored by Opinum (e.g. history loading, account reset, etc.). A request must first be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your request is approved, the files must be uploaded on the FTP under those conditions:
- A new folder named .toprocess should be created
- The folder can contain a maximum of 100 000 files.
- If more than 100 000 files are to be processed, then a second folder named .toprocess2 should be created at the root as well (especially no sub-folders).
The minimum granularity for receiving a datapoint is 1 per minute.
The maximum duration of the computation of a calculated variable is 20 seconds.
If the calculation is so complex that it needs more than 20 seconds, the calculated variables may be deactivated by Opinum. Our support team will contact you to find a solution to compute your calculations in the respect of the system.
Datapoint upload (write)
The timestamp of datapoints must be between D-5 years and D+2 years. Datapointsoints outside this period are ignored.
The maximum number of datapoints -raw and calculated- which can be written (and therefore uploaded) is 2 per granularity (1 overwrite). For example, for a 15-minute variable, you may write one datapoint per 15 minutes twice.
If the number of writes is higher, data ingestion may be deactivated by Opinum. Our support team will contact you to check how your data may be ingested in the respect of the system.
The maximum number of datapoints (raw and calculated) which can be stored is 1 per granularity (i.e. no oversampling). For example, for a 15-minute variable, you may store one datapoint per 15 minutes.
If the number of stored datapoints is higher, data ingestion may be deactivated by Opinum. Our support team will contact you to check how your data may be ingested in the respect of the system.
Datapoints displayed in the UI
The data displayed in the UI is limited to a period of 5 years in the past and 2 years in the future. This limitation is also implemented in the data ingestion.
