We have a system that has a few maintenance activities that run very quickly (less than a second). Problem is, when users look at the log file for the system, seeing an activity that ran for 0 seconds could look like an activity that failed to launch entirely. Mind you, when an error does occur, the log will clearly show that an error occurred.
Is there reason to believe that users unfamiliar with the system would assume that activities running for less than a second would mean the activity never completed successfully?
How the log file currently reads:
