Playback Logs on an NFS Mounted Amino STB Network

Postby Henry.G » Thu Jun 09, 2011 10:27 am

What playback logs are available for signage playing on a network of Amino STBs mounted to an NFS Server? And where are the logs kept? I am running a network of A130s.

Each STB writes audit logs into the ./log/<serialno> directory on the NFS Server. So, for example, an A130 with serialno FA4109D0013621 writes its log files into ./log/FA4109D0013621. The files are:

    log_epg.txt: A running account of all the activity of the DMB player; screenlists active, videos played, RSS Feeds displayed. etc. This offers low level details of the internal workings of the player. When it exceeds 1MBytes the player truncates this file and starts over.
    Daily POPAI Compliant Video Playback Logs: Each file represents a single day's worth of videos played showing the start and end time of each video. The DMB player keeps a week's worth of these log files.

It is important to note that the logs on the NFS Server can be disabled by the NFS Administrator by making the NFS mount point read-only instead of read-write. Here the STB will automatically detect that it does not have permission to write files and, of course, suppress logging on the NFS Server.
