Event Logger Library

The Event Logger Library (ELL) provides an API for logging user events and errors to disk.

Description

The Event Logger Library is an event logging API which supports two different event file types: TDMS and CSV.  The ELL works by storing events in a buffer and then flushing the events to disk at a user defined interval.

It is recommended to use the Event Logger Library in conjunction with the LogRotate Library in order to control the size of the event log file.

Examples

Below is a screenshot of an example of user the ELL:

There is a simple little (but kind of "important") bug in the CSV log files - the values are not "comma" separated but tab separated 🙂

Hello
I have just noticed that if there is an empty line in a csv event file (in my case, it was coming from the fact that I was using an error ring and including the call chain), the read csv return an error 1 :
Scan From String (arg 1) in LogFile CSV.lvclass:ReadEvents.vi->EventLog.lvclass:Read_CSV.vi.

Is someone is still maintaining this packages?
