How to run JetTrac Log:

To run JetTrac Log you need these files in the same folder:

  • JTLog.exe
  • JTLog.ini
  • ExitHandler.dll

Executable files and dll files should not be edited for any reason.

Any information you want to see in the Dashboard at any step of the job can be configured in JetTrac JobConfig by calling the JTLog step and specifying what information that you want to right to the Dashboard.

Job Step Configuration Window in JobConfig for JetTrac Log:

When setting up a job step using JTLog in JobConfig the only line of the config you need to worry about is the first, this is where you will enter the string data or variables you wish to be written to the Log read by JTDashboard at this Job Step.

As with all modules, there is a dropdown to select whether or not the job should stop completely if this step fails. If you select Yes, any error will terminate the job process and write to the log file what happened, if no, then the job will try to continue anyways. However if any steps further down the line rely on the output of a job set to not stop on error, they may not work properly.

For more specifics go to the JetTrac Field ServiceJobConfig page.

JetTrac Log Command Line:

“C:\JetTrac\Programs\JTLog\JTLog.exe” “C:\queuefile.log” “TEXT” “C:\JTLog.log”

The command line begins with the fully qualified file path to the modules executable file, followed by the path to the queue file, the variable text that is wished to be logged and ends with the file path to the log file. Each file path must be the fully qualified path and each section of the command line is in quotes and separated by a space (it doesn’t matter how many).

JetTrac Log Config.ini:

QueFile=File path to the output queue file which will be read by JTDashboard to populate the log.

ArchiveFile=File path where the archive log file will be saved to (as the queue file will be constantly wiped out).

MaxSize=The maximum number of lines to have in the the queue file. This prevents the queue file from continuously growing if Dashboard is not used.
