Live logging keeps failing on MacOS


#1

First boss went fine, 2nd boss I got this:

Error: Line 13431 - 2/25 21:01:33.168 SPELL_DAMAGE,Creature-0-3892-1712-17158-122135-0000131551,“Shatug”,0x10a48,0x0,Creature-0-3892-1712-17158-122477-0000131551,“F’harg”,0xa

This was the live log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/mxW8aty7H6PZk4pJ

Since 2 weeks or so live logging just won’t work anymore for some reason. Known bug on MacOS maybe?
Think I got errors while live logging at least 5 or 6 times now. Can’t remember what the other errors were. I’ll try again later.

Started with an empty log folder when I restarted WoW
Using uploader version 5.01

That line is cut off. Do you have the original log file?


#3

Afraid not. The log file itself seems fine since I uploaded the entire raid afterwards without any problems.


#4

Makes me suspect they’re writing partial lines to the log file, which would be an epic disaster.


#5

Could it be that WoW is still writing to the logs but your updater starts uploading while writing isn’t done?


#6

I think they started writing partial lines, so I scan a line before it’s finished. They should not be doing this. It’s a regression. I let them know about it, since I think that’s what it is.


#7

Maybe add a workaround? Something like ‘if (is_error && is_lastline) retry_in_5_seconds()’ so the log parsing doesn’t break immediately but after 5 seconds or so?

Hey Kihra,
Did you ever had the chance to look into this deeper? Got a new macbook pro now and still have issues with live logging.
