CQP Logging Software


The CQP log processing team often finds bugs in logging software. We work closely with the developers of these packages to get the bugs fixed. They are all very responsive and fix all bugs reported, quickly. As a user, you need to update your software. If you don't we will see the OLD bugs in your log submission and your log will be DQed.
