Recording service and DistributedLogger


I'm wondering if there is a way to record a LogMessage with the Recording Service, a gave it a few shots but even without exemptions and  with the proper topic_expr, the recording service seems to discard those messages along with other internal ones. Is there a way to change this behavior?


Thanks in advance,

Hi Rafael,

Distributed Logger is integrated with Recorder via the administration Domain Participant, starting on version 5.0.0. Recall that Recorder allows the user to use the same participant for user data and for the remote administration of the service. Thus, there may be cases in which Recorder could not work properly both recording DL messages and sending them out, because for recording we use the Dynamic Data type-plugin and for administration we use the specific Distributed Logger type-plugin. As a consequence, Distributed Logger and its administration topics are built-in exemptions starting from version 5.0.0.

However, it should be possible to record the LogMessage topics in version 4.5f of Recorder and before.

Hope this helps.
