How to log 30+ minutes worth of data on GS911 Wifi
« on: June 21, 2015, 05:57:00 AM »
I have an issue with a R1200GS LC that I believe is fuel related but would like to make sure. Is there a way to log real time data on the Wifi version of the device without having a computer on the bike while doing so?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Best regards,

Terry

You can log to the device then download the captured data in CSV format.  I don't know how much device memory is available and can't say for sure that you could store 30 minutes worth of logging.  All of my tests have been of the 2-5 minute variety.

So 30 minutes might be a stretch but the device has it's own memory to log the info? I can't seem to find any detailed info on the site on how to do this.

Thanks,

Terry

I don't know if 30 minutes is a stretch or not.  No data.

I haven't seen ANY documentation to recommend you read.

Play.   Hook up the device.   Start capturing real time data.  It's been a quite a while since I did this and don't remember the details.  I think it is a "Log to disk" checkbox at the bottom of the list of items to monitor.   Limit the amount of data captured to only what you need.  If you try to capture every item you'll only get about two samples/second.

Once the data has been captured it will show up as a file in a "View Log History" menu item.   But I forget which screen gives you that menu.   Like I said.  Play.

There is enough on board storage to record for up to a year or so, I have done over 30 minutes recording through multiple ignition on/off cycles to test it

Marchyman is correct, limit the recording to only the signals you need, the less items selected the higher the sample rate

Yes it is a check box to log to storage and when you are finished you log back into the GS911 and end recording. Go to the logs page and download to your PC or tablet. Where I have tested other people's machines I tend to just disconnect the GS911 and power it up when I get home to recover the data

We should probably list this under product specifications... but the GS-911wifi has 4GB of storage space available (some space is for internal storage, less than 50mb).
So there is enough space for logging many hours of data, however very large log files might not be practical to download and process.

Well, just to to it because I could and see what happens,  I logged a 475 km trip today, 5 hours of recording with 2 stops comes to 1.4 mb of data

The wear rate and food intake for the rider in sub 10c night riding conditions were more of a problem than the size of any data file  :(

The bad news Kobus is I left debug active and it generated an 8.1mb debug file, now I need to find some reason for a programmer to have to look into it  ;D

Thanks Wayne. Of course, as with string, it all depends on what you log and the sample frequency.

Have some mercy, we would like to go on 475km bike trips every now and then as well!*

*We'll be at BMW days in Garmisch-partenkirchen after a trip through the Alps.  :D

I told it to log everything as I just wanted to see it I could break it  8), I failed, it won  :(, the time slices should be 1sec, will look at the data later

Yes well your little trip will be better than mine, I had to get up early catch a train to my mothers place, 475 kms and 8 boring hours on the train to swap into riding gear and then ride back down the main highway home at night in the cold (actually enjoyed being out anyway which just proves how silly I am), 17 hours to recover the bike after leaving up there recently, long day

EDIT,
I indicated the wrong sample rate initially, with all parameters for 650gs selected the sampling is approx 1 sec intervals and yes they are all there in the log
