Most of the fields within the web logs are self-explanatory but a few are not. Below are the columns I see when I download the log for a web script. Can I get a review/update of the following?

> licensetimestamp

Before a script is executed a license check (is the script registered under a still active license?) performed. Reflects the time of that check.

>
errortimestamp

Reflects the time an error occured (if any), such as a failure to download a file (e.g. because it's missing), a graphics error, etc.

>
finishtimestamp

How does this differ from dataTimeStamp? Finishtime should reflect the time all actions, including data upload, have completed. You'll usually find it to be a maybe 1 or 2 seconds later than datatimestamp.

>
finishuseragent

How does this differ from useragent? On some systems it is possible that -- due to system configuration or some other technical issue-- the finish page would be opened in a different browser than the one the experiment was launched with (useragent seen by the launch page). This is detectable by comparing useragent and finishuseragent.

>
finishredirect

External URL (if any) that was redirected to after the experiment.

Hope this helps.
