Activity logs

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if there's an activity log on the android or on the odk
where I can find logs of all form submissions and downloads, errors
and crashes, etc.

We want to record, for analysis and evaluation, what's happening in
the field with our pilot implementation.

Thanks.

we don't do any logging of that sort. we do have a first pass at some
usage logging that carl's been working on, but it's not ready for
public consumption. if you want to log crashes, you might want to look
at https://market.android.com/details?id=org.jtb.alogcat.

Thanks Yaw.

Will be happy to write that functionality.
Would you recommend that we look at Carl's work? and work off that?

And any pointers to where we should be looking at in the code?

Thanks

Asangansi,
Continuous logging is something I'd really like to see for our field
deployments. We have seen a very low rate of Force Close on Save errors that
have been hard to track down due to their infrequency and
their occurrence in the field in the hands of enumerators instead of
developers.

Yes, I think its an important feature and we look forward to writing
this in this week.

Any leads on this from the devs?

thanks

The logging I'm working on is only recording user interaction when filling
out a form, and is pretty tailored to a specific project. None of the
logging I have includes downloads, uploads, or crashes, so it wouldn't be of
any help to what you're trying to accomplish. I do think the features
you're talking about would be a great addition.

My thought about writing something like this would be to use a syntax
similar to android's logging system so you could fill your code with:
Log.e("tag", "message");
(maybe DbLog? or LogDB? or ODKLog)
but have that data get written to a mysql database, or maybe just a flat
file, living in a new directory: /[external-storage]/odk/logs

Thanks Carl and Yaw for the pointers,

I was able to make good progress.

And doing more of the continuous logging on the web side for all
downloads, uploads, etc

btw: it could be cool to have a maven build (just couldn't locate all
the dependencies in repos) but an ant script saved the day.
