At the lower side of the application window, below the set of control tabs is a scrolling textual display called the console log. Several controls provide the means to control what level of detail is shown. Below that, at the bottom of the application window, is a status display line.
The above image shows a typical fragment of a report from the console. The user has just pressed the List Mount Point button and a report of the active mountPts from all stream types has been appended to the log. If any of the remote relay caster connections were down, this would also be shown.
The Console is used for general purpose logging of all events in SNIP. The log records a linear time stamped sequence of the various connection and data serving events that occur in SNIP.
The log entries often provide more detailed data that is needed when not performing analysis a problem, and can easily become overwhelming. A set of controls above the log display allows simple basic filtering operations on the log, useful to reduce the entries displayed to a more manageable level.
