I am developing a BridgeVIEW application and I encountered the following problem: - I am using tags with alarm and event enabled, and also with Log Event options
enabled. In the morning, when I start the application, the engine create an event file and start logging events and alarms. After 12 or 13 PM, the logging stops and if I restart the engine, a new event file is created but it is empty. If I let my application running, after 18 PM the engine start logging the events in the file created
at 12:30. If a try a exemple (let say Cookies exemple) it allways will log events, no matter what time is it.
This is a known issue for BV 1.0 to 2.1.1. There is a "timeout" feature in the event logger that is hard-coded to 10 minutes. The problem is that the event logger fails to create the new log file if no alarms or events are reported during this timeout period.
LV DSC is the new verson of BV and has a database that saves this information rather than seperate files. There is a feature that allows report files to be generated with the alarm, event and/or data that is desired.
