802.11 Reference Design: Event Log

The 802.11 Reference Design integrates a logging system which can record details of nearly any event that occurs at the node. This system is designed to support MAC and PHY experiments that require a more detailed view of the node's operation than aggregate Tx/Rx statistics.

The logging framework is flexible, designed to record log entries of arbitrary length and type. The MAC code in CPU High is responsible for defining the log entry types and populating each log entry at run time. The reference code for CPU High defines a number of useful log entry types and implements logging of many run time events, including all Tx and Rx activity. Users can define additional log entry types or modify existing types to support their experiment.

Many of the wlan_exp examples demonstrate how to use the event log for various experiments.
