Hour file parser capacity improvement
To improve the speed of hour file processing, we have created a pool of parsers that can now process multiple files in parallel.
RelayALERT event import amendments
Centrix R32 introduced support for RelayALERT data loggers. At the time we detected a limitation of these loggers whereby events weren't timestamped in the correct order, as such we re-ordered the events based on their timestamp in the file.
After further investigation we have now confirmed that the order of the events in the file is correct however the time-stamping is inconsistent. As such, we have adjusted the import routine to maintain the ordering of events rather than re-ordering based on time. The time of events is now "frozen" in between events where the time goes backwards in the hour file, this will ensure that alerts are processed more consistently and that events are displayed in the same original order as presented by the data logger.
We still maintain our recommendation to replace BBRail RelayALERT loggers with SA380s where possible.
