OS/2 Distributed Automation Edition Event Logger

       Disclosed is a program which records information about
events that occur during the functioning of a system in a network
environment.  An event can be any action that takes place.  Detailed
data can be logged while an event takes place or after it occurs.
Events are logged from OS/2* Distributed Automation Edition* (DAE)
applications.

      Event Logger makes the event data logged available for viewing
and reporting through Distributed Automation Edition transactions or
a screen.

      Event Logger is made up of two functions, Event Logger Central
and Event Logger Local.  It is usually installed on one node in a
network.  The Central Event Logger contains the logged events for all
nodes in a network.  It saves the logged events on disk.  A user can
view messages for an entire network from a single node.  The Event
Logger's file is self maintained by overlaying the oldest event in
the log.  The central event log is a Distributed Automation Edition
wrap-around table.

      The Local Event Logger exists for each node in the network.  It
saves the events in memory (in a wrap-around manner) for quick
access.

      The following data is logged and written to the event log:
Event identification; Date and time of the event; Node where the
event took place; and Text of the event, including real-time
parameters and predefined message text.

      An application passes a unique predefined identifier that
corresponds to text in...
