Hello All:
 
     How would one record the failure of the data logger? Would there be a baseline time stamping every 30 seconds or something? BTW: Paper does sound good for the medium. Solely in my opinion OVC likes paper because we've been using it for thousands of years and know most of the tricks people try with paper.
 
Thanks, Ed Kennedy

Hello:

Here, ya go. Look
for recent postings. Anything you haven't looked at lately should have
a red asterik at the end organized by subject matter. BTW: There is
now a link at the OVC page under links.

I've moved this thread to the ovc wiki, under considerations/autit
trail.

Let me know what you think of using that as a way to trap info.

I can use a clear goal for the audit log :
I propose it is to :
(1) Confirm that the subsytem has gone through it's workflow as
expected.
- Nota Bene: I think the paper trail has to be the definitive recount /
voter redundancy.
(2) Fault Tolerant design to anticipate most failure modes.
- Write-Once streaming
- Recognize the point the audit trail where itself ! has become
compromised.
