event_off not being set, always 0
« on: 04 Apr 2016, 03:41 »
Hi Guys,

I am trying to estimate the average time between the published off time and the actual off time for the dogs in au i.e.
event_off - even_start.  It turns out that event_off is always set to 0.  What am i missing? I have been using the TM to debug the trigger.

chat soon,

event_off is when a market is turned in-play, the bulk of greyhound markets do not go in-play and are suspended at the off.

you might try last_suspend

Thanks for the reply. Further last_suspend seems to be working.

Maybe this should have been called event_inplay and then event_off could have been used to indicate the actual off irrespective of whether inplay is supported or not. ???

Thanks again,
