Logging Data with the VeriStand Editor

Last Modified: August 31, 2020

Create logging specification (.nivslspec) files with Log Management to configure and execute host-side data logging.

You can add and configure logging specifications after connecting to a deployed system definition. This enables you to adjust which channels to log, when to start and stop logging, and the format of log files produce by the control. You can also configure logging specifications to automate post-processing actions, such as merging log data or producing reports, for log files produced during a log session.
  1. In the VeriStand Editor, click View»Tool Launcher»Log Management.
  2. Use the following sections of the VeriStand Editor to add and configure a logging specification file.

    Logging Specification—The logging specification file appears in the Files pane under the current project. Select the logging specification file you want to configure.

    To create a new logging specification file, right-click the project file and select Add New»Logging Specification.

    Logging specification file screen—When you open a logging specification file in VeriStand, the file is displayed in a screen. Use the screen to add channels to log.
    Configuration—Contains various options for configuring the log session, such as when to start and stop logging, how to save the log files, and options for post processing of log files.

    Log Management—Displays all of the logging specification files in your project. Use the Log Management tool to view the state of logging specifications and to manually start and stop logging sessions.

    To display this tab, click Log Management in the Tool Launcher.

    Execution Control section—Contains Start and Stop options for the selected logging specification file.

    Click Start to begin a log session. If you specified to log immediately, logging begins after you click Start. If you created a start trigger, logging begins after the specified condition is triggered.

  3. Save the logging specification file.
