http://[elog server]:8090/This address will be directed to the configuration page (
http://<elog server>:8090/<cruiseID>/?cmd=ecfmhome) which indicates the cruiseID that is currently running.
The Quickstart Guide is designed to provide the most useful instructions in a concise format. Links to more detailed documentation are provided within the Guide.
During cruise planning, the Chief Scientist will decide whether to use the R2R EventLogger on the cruise. Contact with the R2R Team is optional but useful for planning purposes and to alert support personnel. Provide a few details about the cruise using the form found here: http://www.rvdata.us/contact/elog
Using the information provided on the form, a member of the R2R ELOG Team will create a link that can be used to pre-configure the EventLogger for their cruise before they arrive at the ship.
A configuration file that was created and downloaded on shore can be modified once it has been uploaded to the ship's EventLogger.
The configuration can also be done at the ship upon arrival there for the cruise.
When a shoreside configuration is desired, the Chief Scientist will receive an email from the R2R team that includes a link to the R2R Pre-cruise Configuration page for their cruise. The following information is needed to complete the configuration:
The scientist arrives at the ship with or without a Pre-cruise Configuration file. From any computer on the ship's network, using a browser, go to:
http://<elog server>:8090/which is directed to:
http://<elog server>:8090/<cruiseID>-SE/?cmd=ecfmhomeThe elog server may be the name or IP Address of the shipboard elog server (different from the shoreside server where pre-cruise configuration may have been done) and will be provided by the Shipboard Technician. Complete details of what to do upon arrival that the ship can be found here: Arrival at Ship
Event Collection Process
To enter an event, select the New tab at the top of the window.
At the end of the cruise, once all the events have been entered, event collection is stopped. Archive and CSV files can be downloaded for use by the science party on shore.
Data can be viewed using the provided CSV(comma separated variables) file in a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel or ELOG can be installed locally to view the events as they were seen while being captured by the R2R Event Logger.
Complete details about the End of Cruise sequence can be found here: End of Cruise
