ekanderson Posted February 24, 2009 Share Posted February 24, 2009 18 Feb 2009 shutdown DF data collection and installed the "new" AT&T/Yahoo Security Suite by McAfee. Had the "normal" problems everytime AT&T changes security programs on the 19th and 20th. After any DF restart of the *.ctl file, data became misaligned, and stayed misaligned from 5 to 13 hrs after a restart. The time misalignment of channel's data fell into 3 groups, depending on the channel's average setting. Channels with no average had anticipated time at 6 minute intervals. Channels with average of 6 readings per 6 minutes, and channels with 24 readings per 6 minutes were offset 0730 20 Feb 09: Restarted DF on a *.ctl that routinely collects data with logging and export files. Has been mostly reliable for months, with occassional misalignment of logging data points that occur several times in a 24 hour periods. Timing glitch at 1448 on channels with 6 averages. Next time was 1458. 0554 22 Feb 09: Restart DF. Timing glitch at 1136 on channels with 6 averages, times 1136, 1136, 1146, 1152, etc. at 0338 23 Feb 09: Row 0 times for each group: 0336:01.055, 0334:01.010, and 0334:46.025 on the 23rd of Feb. 0430 23 Feb 09: Restart DF. Set priority of DF in WinXp to "real time". 0330 24 Feb 09: All channel times as expected within 0.0x sec. All this on a 1.9 Ghz machine "reading" a LJ U3. CPU utilization rarely goes over 30%. AT&T's last security suite was Norton/Symantec. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
