Cash point data logging provides a mechanism for the camera to store the transaction data of cash points on the storage medium. By using MxMessageSystem for controlling the data transfer, you can record the data of several cash points on one camera and also record the data of one cash point on several cameras.

Open the Retail Configuration dialog and scroll to the Configuration section to select the cash points for logging the transaction data.

You can use the Status section to see if the settings are working properly.

Configuration

If this has not happened already, you can activate the data logging feature and enter the names of the cash points for which you want to log the transaction data.

Enabled

Activates the event and cash point data logging of the camera. This corresponds to activating the Event Logging option in the Storage on External File Server / Flash Device dialog.

Note

This parameter is only available if the event logging service has not been activated yet.

Add Cash Point Name

Adds an entry to the list of cameras whose transaction data are being logged. Enter the name of the cash point as it has been set when configuring the cash point.

A valid cash point name must follow these rules:

  • Must start with a letter.

  • Must not contain spaces, tabs or the "/", "%" or "." characters.

  • Must not be longer than 31 characters.

Remove

This removes the cash point name from the list and deactivates the logging of transaction data for the cash point. The data logged until now will remain untouched and is still available. If you add the same cash point name again later on, the camera resumes logging the transaction data for this cash point.

Status

This section shows the current status of cash point data logging in two tables.

The first table shows information on the received data for each of the configured cash points configured in the Configuration section.

  • Registered shows whether or not the camera logs the data from this cash point.

  • Received since last reboot shows whether or not data has been received from this cash point since the last reboot of the camera.

The second table shows information on the time range covered by the logs, the contents of the last log entry and the fill level of the storage area reserved on the storage medium.

  • Oldest transaction: Timestamp of the oldest entry in the log.

  • Newest transaction: Timestamp of the latest entry in the log.

  • Last transaction: Contents of the newest logged entry.

  • Fill level: When starting to store transaction data for the first time after formatting the storage area, this item shows the current fill level. If the entire storage space has been used up, the camera will start overwriting the oldest transaction data. After that, the fill level will not change any more and will remain at 100 percent. In order to see how long the logged data are stored, it is advisable to monitor the fill level frequently at the beginning.

Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.

Click on the Factory button to load the factory defaults for this dialog (this button may not be present in all dialogs).

Click on the Restore button to undo your most recent changes that have not been stored in the camera permanently.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
