Logging not capturing all commands

Hello,

I am using SecureCRT Version 7.0.3 (x64 build 480) for Windows 7.

I have a script that runs in multiple tabs open in one window. It's purpose is to determine the device it is logged into, and then send a series of commands to the device based upon that information. The script is to then capture the output of the commands to a text file saved locally on my C:\drive.

The problem I am encountering is that the last few commands on a few devices will not be captured if I turn of logging immediately afterwards. If I do not turn off logging (by commenting out the line just below "STOP LOGGING") then the data is captured, however the logging stays on in that tab, which I do not want to occur. I want to turn on logging, save the output and turn it off.

This If statement falls in a for loop that runs on every tab in the window following a series of checks.

If I need to post the entire script, please let me know. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi wulfsburg,

We have seen this issue in the past, and it is typically the result of the script being out of sync. You have at least one place in your script where you use Send() three times in a row, putting the script out of sync.

To ensure that all data is logged, you should use a WaitForString() call after each Send() call. Does this help to resolve the issue?

No, this does not fix my issue. As the tab will shift (for lack of a better term) back , and it will still crop the log output. I have tried modifying the script in a number of ways, including the appropriate amount of screen.waitforstring commands as well as removing the extra sends. Still, I have no luck. I have also tried to insert sleeps with the crt.sleep command, but it doesn't have any affect.

In fact, it seems almost as if it freezes the whole tab.

Have any other suggestions?

Hi wulfsburg,

Thanks for the update. It is possible that the synchronization issue is occurring prior to the snippet of code you included.

I find that the best way to troubleshoot these types of issues is to take the snippet of code and create a separate script from it. Run that script and see if it works.

If it doesn't, then we have something solid to test. If it does work, then we know that the problem exists somewhere else in the larger script.

Would you create a script out of the snippet of code and test it?

Please ensure that you have an equal number of pairs of Send() and WaitForString() calls.

I'm having the same problem (but my script is a little simplier).

# $language = "VBScript"
# $interface = "1.0"

Sub Main

crt.Screen.Synchronous = True

crt.Screen.Send vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

Dim logfile
logfile = "C:\FTP_ROOT\CONFIGS\%S_%H__%M-%D-%Y-%hh.%mm.config.txt"
crt.Session.LogFileName = logfile

crt.Session.Log True

crt.Screen.Send "term len 0" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== CLOCK/TIME ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show clock" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== CONFIGURATION ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show run" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== CHECK VERSION INFO ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show version" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "dir /all" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== HARDWARE LIST ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show inventory" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== VIEW ROUTING ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show ip route" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show run | include ^ip route" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== VIEW INTERFACE STATISTICS ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh ip interface brief" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh interfaces counters errors" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh interfaces accounting" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== CHECK RESOURCES ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show proc cpu history | i [0-9]" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh proc cpu | e 0.00% 0.00% 0.00%" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh processes memory sorted | e 0 0 0" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== VIEW ACCESS LIST HIT COUNTS ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh access-list | i matches" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== VIEW THE LOG ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "show log" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send " !=============== LIST VPN CONNECTIONS ===============@ " & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "sh crypto isa sa" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Screen.Send "term len 40" & vbCr
crt.Screen.WaitForString "#"

crt.Session.Log False
crt.Screen.Send vbCr
'crt.Session.Disconnect

End Sub


The logging stops at different places. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi collinclark,

I am sorry to hear about the issue. What is the version of SecureCRT that you are using?

What operating system are you using?

Hi collinclark,

Thanks for the information.

What are points in the script where the logging stops?

Does logging stop at a different point each time?

If you don't turn off logging at the end of the script, do you get the complete output?

When you send the command that looks like a comment (begins with "!===..."), does the remote device return a prompt?
