X10 logging in the ISY log file?

What are the chances of X10 traffic being added to the ISY log file? I'm suprised this hasn't been requested before (repeatedly), but I only found one other mention of a request for this by jgraziano somewhat buried in another topic.

Frankly, I would have requested this before, but not having Excel, it hasn't been easy to use that log file until the 2.6.1 beta version.

 

Michel, thanks for you consideration of this request. I'll bet there are many others who could use this capability to debug the X10 interactions in their programs, and if some don't want X10 events logged, perhaps make it user selectable :)

d_l,

 

First of all, apologies for a tardy reply ... sometimes the posts just get lost!

 

I have added this to the list of our requirements and we will surely consider it.

 

With kind regards,

Michel

d_l, in the interim, I'm using the Java console log. It has its drawbacks, mainly that it just spits out just raw addresses, but it does log X10 activity, in real time, to the second, as well as Insteon activity. I keep it on screen almost all of the time.

Jim, thanks for the suggestion. I sometimes do that when developing and debugging programs with X10 inputs (normally though I use a separate 1132CU to track and generate X10 testing inputs), but the log would be more for the actual operation questions when my computer is powered down such as, "which of several motion sensors triggered the outdoor lights" and "could other powerline traffic have caused a X10 trigger failure".

 

I'm sure you know all about those type of questions yourself. :)

Yeah, this is where I've found the Java log to be the most useful cause it logs to the second. I did have an instance where a motion sensor crashed some Insteon commands, with the log it was very clear. I moved the MS to a less traffic prone area that would give the same functionality.
