Log or System Monitor file

  • Hi there!

    Yesterday I had a problem during a show concerning input midi notes and I would like to check the system monitor info or some log file to understand what went wrong.

    Where is this info stored/where can I fin it?

    Thanks in advance.

  • The system monitor output is usually only displayed in the system monitor window inside the grandMA3 software.

    If you want to get it into an external file, you can dump log the current state once by using the DumpLog command:

    DumpLog Keyword - grandMA3 User Manual - Help pages of MA Lighting International GmbH

    Or you use the grandMA3 terminal application to connect to the system monitor of your running grandMA3 station. When you connect from a Windows station you can pipe out the messages by using the standard piping from Windows.

  • Thank you for the quick response.

    But I'm not sure I got it.

    Am I able to do this after I shut down the console?

    Sorry, but I didn't understand how to use the DumpLog command... What is supposed to happen hen I use it? In the manuel it says that it is "used to deposit the output of the system monitor in form of a text file". Where is that file stored?

    You mean using FileZilla, for example?

    Where will the messages be stored? In the crashlogs folder?

    In this case there was no crash. I just wanted to check the system monitor to find some midi intputs and some possible errors made while operating a theater play.

    Thank you for your time

  • Following this forum, as I am looking to find what corrupt piece of data is crashing my MA3 constantly.
    I just upgraded from 1.6 to 1.8 and the file is shitting the bed.

    No. This works only during runtime.

    grandMA3 software deso not store the usual system monitor output into a file. Only when it crashes the last entries are stored into a crashlog text file.

    The manual says also, that the system monitor tells you also where the file was stored on the hard drive after executing the DumpLog command.

    You mean using FileZilla, for example?

    No. You have to open the app_terminal.exe in Windows by using the cmd.exe of Windows.

    When using the piping, you define where the file on your computer will be stored.
