Abstract structures


Tasks are for anything that takes some time and has a defined outcome


  1. Type name String describing the kind of action
  2. Instance id Unique id for this particular instance of the type. Could also be a goal description.
  3. Start time Usually in milliseconds
  4. End time
  5. State Usually at least success/failure, but can be any descriptive string

RML has some tools that operate on tab-separated value files containing these fields in exactly that order. Be sure that you're really using tab-separation, not spaces!
