The Euresys Memento event logging system has been designed to record an accurate log of events related to the camera, the frame grabber and its driver, as well as the host application, during the operation of a Coaxlink frame grabber.
Events such as driver function calls, callbacks, triggers received by the frame grabber, strobe signals sent to the light controller, or camera control signals are all recorded along with precise time stamps and detailed context information. With Memento’s Event Viewer, the system is able to display a list of these events, along with associated time stamp and context information. In addition, graphical views are also available and different levels of verbosity can be selected and events listed can be filtered and searched
Memento also provides assistance during application development and debugging, as well as during system operation. During these processes, Memento assists the developer in understanding the behavior of the machine and identifies the cause of issues such as missed triggers or lost images. It can also be used during operation of the machine, as it can run in the background and save logs that can be sent to the support team in case of machine failure.
Memento relies on software resources implemented inside the driver of the Euresys Coaxlink cards, as well as hardware resources on the Coaxlink cards themselves. Memento, which is free and works with all Euresys Coaxlink cards, is non-intrusive, as the required CPU load is extremely low.
