Once the maximum number of records have been stored, the Database Logger will not store any more records until it can forward some of the currently stored records.
For example, you configure Store and Forward for a maximum of five records.
After the Database Logger loses its connection to the database, it stores five records and logs the "Number of stored records exceeded" message to the Status Log:
The Database Logger then reconnects to the database and is able to forward three of the stored records before it loses its connection again.
The Database Logger will now store three records and log the "Number of stored records exceeded" message to the Status Log:
If the Database Logger is shut down, and there are still records in the storage files, when the Database logger restarts, these records are not counted against the maximum. Under these conditions, you can have more than the maximum number of records stored to disk.
Note: You specify the maximum number of stored records on the Connection tabs in the Database Logger Logging Properties dialog box.
Store and forward.
