Activity Logging

With the "Log engine activity" option enabled, the information about the launched commands and other activity is added to the log.

The following is an Activity Log file description. All dates and times are in server local time. Events are line-delimited, one event per line.

  • Events to mark that Cinegy Playout has started and stopped (should appear first and last in log in normal operations, unless log has rolled over) are:

    "<date>","<time>","ENGINE","START"
    "<date>","<time>","ENGINE","STOP"
  • Events to show specific actions on the VIDEO output are:

    "<date>","<time>","VIDEO","BLACK"
    "<date>","<time>","VIDEO","BYPASS"
    "<date>","<time>","VIDEO","CLEAN"
    "<date>","<time>","VIDEO","NORMAL"

    Where:

    • BLACK means that video black is an output as a result of pressing the "BLACK" button in Cinegy Air.

    • BYPASS means that the configured video input signal is routed to the output as a result of pressing the "BYPASS" button in Cinegy Air.

    • CLEAN means all graphics and audio elements are now off (as a result of pressing the "CG off" button in Cinegy Air).

    • NORMAL means video output has returned to normal (for example following a BLACK or BYPASS event).

  • Events to show the triggering of secondary event operations on the engine (e.g. router control, Cinegy Type layer activation) are:

    "<date>","<time>","<device>","<command>","<op1>","<op2>","<op3>"
    Important
    Please see relevant device documentation for details of interpreting command and op codes.
  • Events that show activity on individual parts of the output are:

    "<date>","<time>","<device>","<event>","<unique ID>","<name>","<description>","<Traffic ID>","<Subtitle ID>","<EPG ID>","<Mark In/Out>","<duration>","<error flag>"
