Diagnostic and Logging Options
General Server Activity Logging
All MatrikonOPC servers offer a wide range of diagnostic logging
options, configurable to the user’s needs, including:
Configurable log filename and location.
Multiple log levels available (High, Medium, Low, Debug).
Change logging configurations ‘on-the-fly’ so run time operations are not affected by trouble
Buffer writes to memory for increased performance, or commit all writes to disk immediately for critical
log capture scenarios.
Enforce maximum log size to prevent disk overflow.
Optionally display logging information to screen as it updates in real time.
Detailed OPC Diagnostic Logging
Sometimes in depth troubleshooting is required to determine a low level or
compliance related issue. All MatrikonOPC servers offer the ability to capture all OPC interface method calls
and callback information. This interface level logging captures all parameters, result calls and other
valuable information for troubleshooting.
Selective Filter Logging
There are occasions when a key log message is difficult to find in a massive
log file, or lost when a buffer maximum is achieved. The MatrikonOPC selective filter logging feature
enables the user to create a separate log file to capture any message that contains user defined filter strings.
Run Time Communication Diagnostics
All MatrikonOPC servers support diagnostic counters that track
communication messages between the OPC Server and the underlying device or protocol. The counters supported include:
Messages Timed Out
