Device Monitoring Studio - PC Connections Data Monitoring Logging and Analyzing Software
Multisource is not a separate data source type. Instead, it is a technology that allows the user to monitor two or more devices of the same type in a single monitoring session. Device Monitoring Studio considers such monitoring session as having a single source and sorts incoming packets according to their capture times.
The following data sources support multisource:
The following data sources do not support multisource:
If the selected device belongs to one of the supported data types, Add More button appears. Click the button to see the list of all devices of the same type you may add to the session. You cannot add the same device twice and you cannot exceed the maximum of 16 devices per session.
Not all data processing modules support multisource sessions. Session Configuration Window automatically updates the list of available processing modules when you add or remove device. If only one device remains in a session, it becomes non-multisource.
After creation, multisource session does not allow you to add or remove devices.
To help you distinguish packets from different devices, all data visualizers that support multisource sessions use different colors to highlight packets from different devices. You configure a global color table on Tools » Settings, Multisource Device Colors Tab. For reference, Sessions Tool Window uses the same colors when it displays the list of devices in a session.
Serial Bridge, Playback and Remote data sources do not support multisource.
Note that Data Recording processing module supports multisource, but when you later play back the resulting log file, it is considered as having a single source, but will still show you packets from all original devices.
