Interpreting Log File Fields

I have a question about two fields in the on-board log files :  

1) How do you interrupt the time in the GPS field.  It doesn't seem to be NMEA or time-since-epoch.

2) Is there an enumeration of the I2CErr values in the PM log record?

        dataflash logs are created in arduplane whenever you plug it in.

        the gps time field is in milliseconds since epoch

        the i2c errors are not enumerated but each PM message will tell you the number of errors since the last PM message

  • And one more question - when is a new log file created?  It seems like I get a lot of them - maybe a new one or two every minute.  Some of them have no data logged, just the header and field descriptions.
