Track plan health

Content Rocrail Server

  • Track plan health


At every start Rocrail checks the track plans health.
The goal of this check is to inform the user of object definition errors which will lead to unexpected behavior.


The report is only visible in the Rocrail server trace.
Rocview will show the health in the status bar.

Information reported

  • overlapping objects
  • multiple uses of IDs for the same object type
  • negative coordinates
  • information of the most far away located object

Subsequent Errors

replace existing object with key [0_14_2_Modellbahn]

For some objects, such as switches and sensors Rocrail creates keys. A key is based on a.o. address and interface ID. If several of these objects are created, but they all still have the default address or if more objects were given the same address and interface ID, this message will occur.

Short Report

Since revision 4184 you can restart the health test from Rocview with “File”/“Analyze”/“Check plan health”. The most important results (errors and warnings) will be displayed in the trace window of the server.
