Re: EAE Event counter details

I don't know what's the maximum value and as it's an informative number of event count, you can't get this number in the application. Yes, it reset automatically, you don't need to take care of this.

If you want to count the number of events in your application, you need to handle a "Data Pin" with your own logic.

 

Event Blocker is useful to debug your application, but not in production!

If you need Event Blocker in prod, I would say that It most probably means that you have a design issue!

Re: EAE Event counter details

This value is only an indication (very useful when you debug).
You can even reset it with a right-click.

So it will restart counting arriving at the "max" (whatever this max is)

Re: EAE Event counter details

Thanks for the update.

But if don't reset manually does it automatically reset, if yes than after which value.

 

Also we have seen that we need to use Event Blocker in some application after FB's to help restrict continuous event generation in the EAE application.

Is it right way or best practice in EAE application configuration.
