Displaying Monitored USB Request Blocks (URB View)

Displaying Monitored USB Request Blocks (URB View)

The URB View visualizer displays each monitored USB Request Block (URB). It decodes the packet's internal fields, and works in two modes - Basic and Complete. In Basic mode only the main packet fields are decoded and displayed, while some other are available as popup hints. In Complete mode the entire packet is decoded and all accompanying data is provided in Hex/ASCII view. You can switch between two modes at any time and, moreover, you can switch the mode for individual packets.

The contents of the visualizer can be copied into the Clipboard or exported into the file in various formats. Use the mouse to select the portion to copy/export or leave the selection empty to copy the entire visualizer contents.

Use the powerful Find and Go to Packet commands to locate the information you need.

With outstanding performance at the first place, the URB View visualizer is your best tool to analyze monitored data.
