I do not understand the auto-archiving log output


#1

Hi,

I set up the auto-archiving-script /misc/cron/archive.sh to be run every hour.

I understand that every report, that includes the day “today” is re-calculated everytime the script is run.

The logging of the archive.sh shows values, I can’t explain to myself.

e.g. if I run archive.sh today (2012-03-02) the archiving period “day” starts with the output:


result date = "2011-12-14">3857</result>

and goes up to today.

Why is the day “2011-12-14” recalculated? It’s long over?

Same goes for the archiving-periods “week” and “month”. The log says, long gone periods have got a result.

By the way: What does it mean, when a result of 3857 is printed in the log?

Regards, Rikky

Old days are not recalculated, only “selected” and displayed in the output (but this is very fast)

hi Matt,

thanks for the response.

Is there a semantic difference between a log-output


<result date="2011-03-28 to 2011-04-03" />

and a log-output?


<result date="2011-04-04 to 2011-04-10">9812</result>

For one period there is a result, i.e. 9812 and for the other period there is no result.
