    Log File keeps increasing although the maximum size is set

    Log File keeps increasing although the maximum size is set

    Dear users,

    We recently installed our file mover at a new customer. From the first moment on we had issues with our History Log option (= logging to file). The log file kept on growing although the maximum logsize and log count were set. We tried many (many) different settings, we even installed our file mover on a second system but the result was always the same. Sometimes the filesize even stayed at zero bytes (using the Windows File Explorer) but when we opened the file it contained log data.  We had never experienced this in all those years. After a lot of tests we found a workaround and changed our logging code. Now we count the bytes we write to the log file so we no longer depend on what the Windows Filesize API tells us. We changed this in version v2021.3.20.0.

    Q&A 30: I only want to email the latest run time log

    Q: I only want to have email the latest run time. We are trying to come up with a standard email notification format, and we just could not figure out to set up email body as we want. What I would like to want is to have email only to show the result of the latest action.

    A: We are going to use a small Pascal Script to achieve this. Please have a look at the following screenshots.

    Open the Pascal Script Setup of this Rule:

    • Enable ‘On Rule Begin’
    • Add the following ‘On Rule Begin’ Script. Function psRTLog will clear the RunTime Log.
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here

    In your email setup you can use  %LRT  (%LRT = Log RunTime) to show the RunTime Log content:

    We decided to make it even easier in our latest version and added an alternative to using Pascal Script. This new build will be available soon.
