OBJECTIVE or GOAL
Capture all of the available diagnostic data and logs immediately after you encounter an instrument error.
- Agilent Instrument Control Framework
The Agilent diagnostic buffers and logs can be captured in a couple of ways.
IMPORTANT - Collect the logs immediately after the incident and before rebooting the PC and the instrument modules.
- Use Agilent LabAdvisor - https://www.agilent.com/en/products/software-informatics/chromatography-data-systems/lab-advisor-software
- Run the AgilentLogfileCollecter.exe - C:\Empower\Instruments\AgilentLC\Support\Agilent.DriverLogFileCollector.exe
Additionally, in the Run Samples window there is usually a tab for diagnostic logs; print or copy to Notepad and save.
IMPORTANT - The diagnostic logs are immediately overwritten when the instrument modules are rebooted. If the logs are not captured, they will be lost, greatly reducing the chances of identifying the root cause of the instrument error.
