Archive Veristand Datalog Files

Go to solution



I'm working on a project where I need to log data for long duration ( let's say 2 years continuously ). I am logging the data generated in Veristand by the host workspace data log functions. I know that I can segment the data and create multiple files and I am segmenting the file for every hour. My problem is, it will generate so many number of files, which my host computer will not be able to store. I want to move the segmented files to a network storage drive while the logging is continuing. 


What are the best way to do so? 


I tried manually and programmatically copying the files to different place, I see the next segmented file name starts from the beginning. This is also a problem to find out which is the correct file order for the segmented files.


I have tried the download log file function and it is always giving me error that "the log file is invalid"


I'm using LabVIEW 2017 and Veristand 2017.

Do you put timestamp on file names?

Thanks for the idea. I was keeping the date and time as a constant in the file name(calculating date time while starting). Now I moved it to  date time string so that Veristand automatically adds the date and time to each file created. This solved the renaming issue. Now I can at-least use my own file copy code to move each of them to a new destination.
