View a Sequence of Events Log
An event log is built into some of the custom display tiles to view a sequence of events.
Below is an example of a single point status data object with an event log. Next to the value is an event counter. This counter is incremented each time the status value changes. Right clicking on the tile gives two options for the event log:
- Show Event Log - this will show the event log in a separate window
- Reset Transition Counter - this will reset the event counter but not the event log
By selecting the Show Event Log… menu option, a history of the status change events can be displayed. The Event Log holds a record of the last 100 status changes. The log is not reset if the counter on the tile is reset. Below is an example of an event log that had five transitions. Each transition row shows the timestamp, quality bits, and value. Note that only transitions that occurred as a result of GOOSE or report messages are included in the event log. If the tile is set to data retrieval method of polled, the event log will not be available.
