TSTool / Command / WriteCheckFile


The WriteCheckFile command summarizes the results of command processing warning/failure messages in a “check file”. This file is useful for reviewing results and for quality control. The check file is essentially a persistent record of any problems that occurred during processing organized by commands, whereas a full log file contains a sequential list of processing. See the CheckTimeSeries command to implement specific data checks.
