Logger Help Documentation

Logger is a LabVIEW™ library modeled after the Log4j and similar libraries. This add-on can be used to create a robust, full-feature application logging and error-handling system for any LabVIEW™ application. Logging statements are written as CSV lines to a log file. Log files are managed and organized by calendar date and file name to reduce clutter and on-disk storage space. Logging can be configured to automatically close and create a new log file based on file size. Advanced error-handling capabilities are provided by combining level-based application logging with the General Error Handler VI of LabVIEW™ to easily catch, log, clear, and display errors based on verbosity, severity, and configuration.

This section of the Field R&D Services Help Documentation contains tutorials, user manuals, developer notes, guides, and API material for the Logger product. Specific questions can be submitted using the Contact Us form.
