Message Log Functions

Message Log Functions support sending a message to a local Message Log file, to the home node Message Log and Event Log, and to the standard output. The PI-API contains the following Message Log Functions:

Function Description
pilg_checklogfile Check the size of the Message Log file and make a backup copy if it exceeds a predefined size.
pilg_formputlog Send a message to the local Message Log file formatted with the process name and an optional identifier string prepended.
pilg_puthomelog Send a message to the pi home node log file and Event Log
pilg_putlog Send a message to the local Message Log file
pilg_putoutput Send a message to one or more destinations

The location and name of the Message Log file is platform dependent and the specific platform topic should be consulted.
