Logging Framework

The High MAC Framework implements a logging subsystem which supports recording details of individual events in real time. The logging framework writes log data to a dedicated section in the FPGA node’s DRAM. Log entries are written in real time each with a microsecond-resolution timestamp. The logging data can then be retrieved using the experiments framework for offline analysis.

By default the high MAC logs every Tx and Rx event at the node. The framework can be extended with custom log entry definitions.

Full details of the logging subsystem and documentation of the default log entry types are provided in the experiments framework user guide.
