DATA.CSV: General Comments on the Data Record Entries
All log entries share some common entries that are best described separately. The log formats were
designed so that they could be easily read in either an automated fashion or interrupted manually. In
order to accomplish this, several fields that pertain to the format of each line were added at the
beginning of each line.
All log entries share 3 fields in common that appear at the beginning of each line. The first field is a
new record indicator that signifies that start of a new data record. This is signified by a “!”. The second
field is a log type identifier. This is a numeric value that indicates what type of log this record belongs
to. The third field is a record type identifier. This is a numeric field that is used to indicate the format
of the remaining record entry.
Each data record is terminated by a <CR><LF> (carriage return and linefeed).
DATA.CSV: Begin and End Records
Each log begins with a “Begin” record (record type 1) and end with an “End” record (record type 4). In
addition, to marking the start and conclusion of each log, these records indicate the name of the log that
was saved, the date and time the record was saved, the model of the unit, and the serial number of the
DATA.CSV: Header Records
The second record entry of each log is a header entry (record type 2). This record entry identifies the
field names for the main record entries (record type 3).
DATA.CSV: Main Records
The main data records (record type 3) for each log type follow the header record. Refer to the header
record of each log type to identify what a given value represents.
DATA.CSV: System Log Example
The System Log contains information on how the system was configured at the time the log was saved.
