data.confhistory analyzes the base archives generated by CPD2 to generate a report about when configuration file changes occurred.

Command Line Usage

data.confhistory [--start=start] [--end=end] station Key1 [ ... KeyN ]


--start=start and --end=end

The time specifiers for the data to be inspected. Start is inclusive while end is exclusive, so all data contained within the half open interval [start,end) will be returned. Any convertible time format is accepted. May be omitted to specify positive/negative infinity.


The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.

Key1 ... KeyN

Conf file keys to process. Case insensitive. Accepts regular expression matches, wrapped in “^key$”. For example “Instruments;S11;Config;SMZ”.

Example Usage

All changes to S11 SMZ parameter

data.confhistory bnd "Instruments;S11;Config;SMZ"

All after a date to a variable calibration

data.confhistory --start=2010 mlo "Instruments;X1;var;T_V11;cal"
