Post Adding a marker in the logs
on: October 18, 2020 (GMT)

Hi,

I bought the torque pro app because I am chasing an engine issue. I’m logging the PIDs I’m interested in but I don’t know how to insert a marker when the issue occurs.

I would like to press a button in order to find the values of the PIDs at that time. Otherwise it is hard to browse in hours of logs…

Is this possbile?

Thank you!

Could this be a new feature?

you can add an external PID to the record according to the parameter you need with a threshold
e.g. PID “Speed auto” formula – “A”
can take the value 0-255
PID “Speed auto more 100” formula – “Lookup(A::0~100=0:101~255=A)”
can take the value from zero to one hundred will write you zero in the log, and above 100 will show the real speed, which you can then see in the log when analyzing
also you can create the PID you need with a threshold for any parameter
you can give a specific example what you want to control?

You could also create a timer with the tot()
function and “reset” it at the time of the
problem. (or simply note the timer value).

Header: Auto
Mode/Pid: Leave blank.
Long Name: Run Time
Short Name: Run Time
Equation: int(tot(1:lookup(Val{SIM Counter}::0~1=0:2~65535=1)))
Units: s
Note: Save result in profile to continue counting between sessions.
e.g., engine run time.

Header: Auto
Mode/Pid: Leave blank.
Long Name: SIM Counter
Short Name: SIM Counter
Equation: Min(Val{SIM Counter}+1:15)
Units: count

Add both to logging for continued use off screen.

Thanks guys for the replies. I am not very familiar with proposed solutions, I will take another look at the documentation.

I will elaborate: I suspect an issue with the common-rail pump / injectors / fuel pressure because sometimes when I will accelerate will not work as expected. But it reproduces once per hour or so. In this period there are thousands of logs. Moreover, it could talk another hour or so of driving until getting home to download and analyze the logs.

My first thought was that if there was a button to press which will log something in the logs file, I could search for it to be in the neighborhood of the issue and I might be able to see what’s wrong.

I will take another look if I have any PID which can be toggled by a switch…
