TMT could be set permanently into ‘record to file’ mode, and a new file could be started simply and quickly with just 1 click on the ‘New File’ button.
The procedure with DS is far more cumbersome - particularly to change the log file:
- Click the ‘Stop Logging’ button - to close the old file;
- Click the ‘Clear View’ button (othewise traces already logged in the old file will be duplicated in the new file);
- Click the ‘Start Logging’ button;
- Accept the the proposed filename & location;
I often want to change the log file during a session; eg, after the end of one test, prior to starting the next.
