RE: slogger inserts garbage characters in disk file in versi

Clear slogger using command slogger -c. It will clear the existing slog messages and re run your application and validate slog message.
I have observed that junk data will apprears in slogger during any problem in application. I had also got same problem earlier or might be application or driver control goes to infinite loop.

I had tried clearing the buffer. Even after that the problem seems to persist.It normally happens when there are many messages logged within a short span. Can this be a problem because many threads are accessing slogger , do we need locking?

even if application goes in infinite loop, the messages need to be logged for debugging.

Have you tried running slogger2 instead?

http://www.qnx.com/developers/docs/qnxc ... gger2.html

Not sure what the 'limitations of the original logger' are but perhaps whatever they are is the problem you are experiencing.

Hi Tim,

I dont have slogger2 utility in my current qnx OS. Mine is QNX 6.4 and running on PPC target arch, I think slogger2 is for QNX7, and target arch is x86, ARM.

Thanks

Hi Madokapeng,

slogger2 is available in 6.6 but I can't find any references to earlier versions of QNX. So it very well could be that it's not available in 6.4.

In the other thread you commented on regarding this the person said they solved it by logging to a RAM disk. Maybe you can try redirecting the log file to a RAM disk instead of the hard drive and see if it solves your issues. That's some of what slogger2 does.

Another solution is to open "/dev/slog" in read mode, parse the content with the help of <sys/slog.h> and <sys/slogcodes.h> and do whatever you want with it.
On my side, I send the raw packets on a TCP socket to a PC. The PC decodes the packets and displays them. This way, I get an "infinite" trace log. Of course, this is also possible to record the (raw) packets on the PC for further analysis.
