Log File


Recommended Posts

I have setup a AC power timer that will turn off the modem and R2 router at 1:59 a.m. each morning and turn it back on at 2:00 a.m.   I checked the log file this morning to test.  Notice the dates.  I checked my logs yesterday, and there were Thur July 27th logs.  I also downloaded the logs and got the same results.  Where is the missing days?  How do I clear the logs?

If the R2 was powered off it would not have retained it's logs, they're stored in memory so they're cleared when power is lost.

As for the missing days, I'm not sure, was usage of the R2 normal or were you not using it?

It was working normally.  It was powered off and back on at 2:00 a.m. on Thur July 28th.  If the logs are cleared with the power off, I understand why there are no logs for July 28th before 2:00 a.m.  I don't understand why they July 22th logs were retained after the power off.

The timer keeps it off for 1 minute.  This time, I pull the power plug for over two minutes.  The memory cleared correctly this time with nothing before I turned it back on.  Oddly, I noticed the same July 22nd logs yesterday.

I set my timer with two minutes of power off.  Unfortunately, I was working late when it went out this morning.  I checked the logs again this morning, and the same July 22nd entries are in the log file again even though they were not there after I manually unplugged it for about 2 minutes yesterday.

As a matter of curiosity, I have been monitoring my system logs.  My timer is doing well with the daily 2 minute off times. For the longest time, the July 22nd entries remained.  Today I noticed that the July 22nd entries are replaced with August 5th entries with the restart today Aug 7th.  

This is just FYI.

Same goes for me.

My first thought was that when rebooting the device doesn't retain correct date/time settings and what I see is the usual change after contacting ntp servers.
Just a wild guess.
