Logging Events

NetworkAmp Manager compares the threshold values set on the ACU Threshold page (see 

page 24

) with the amp’s operating status and issues a warning if a value is exceeded. Warn-

ings are displayed in the Log window (see 

page 29

) and recorded to the log file. Log files are 

CSV format text files that can be opened by any text editor, word processor, or spreadsheet.

Log Setup

The Log Setup dialog box is used to configure logging. Note that the Log window is not 
affected by these settings. To open the Log Setup dialog box, choose Log Setup from the 
Option menu.

Enable logging: 

This check box is used to enable and disable logging to file. Select it to 

enable logging.

Record xx days per log file: 

Here you can specify the number of days to record in each 

log file. When the number of days is exceeded, the current log file is closed and subsequent 
events are recorded to a new log file.

Automatically delete log files after xx days: 

When this check box is selected, log 

files older than the specified number of days are automatically deleted.

Output file folder: 

This is used to specify the folder into which NetworkAmp Manager 

stores its log files. It also determines the folder that the automatic delete function searches 
for old log files. By default, log files are stored in a folder called “Log,” which resides in the 
project folder. Use this option when you want to store the log file elsewhere.

Log files are named using the date on which they were created with the format 
“ddmmmyyyy.csv”, where “dd” is the day from 01 to 31, “mmm” is the month (Jan, Feb, 
Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec), and “yyyy” is the year. For example, 
“01Aug2002.csv”.

Events are recorded in the log file in chronological order one line at a time, each line being 
prefixed with the date and time at which the event took place with the format 
“dd/mmm/yyyy, hour:minute:second”. For example, “01/Aug/2002, 21:30:25”.

Note: Don’t open the log file while NetworkAmp Manager is running. Warnings may not be 
recorded to the log file properly if you do.

Note: Be sure to select a folder that’s on the same hard disk as the project file.
