Live view overview
When you trigger a capture session in Eclipse for DS-5, the Live view opens automatically. It charts capture data and provides a list of processes alongside usage data.
Figure 5-1 The Live view
You can use the chart handles to reorder the charts in Live view, and you can use the bottom of the handle to re-size the height of a chart. Disclosure controls enable you to view data on a per-core or per-cluster basis for charts that support this.
NoteTo have active charts in the Live view, you must set Buffer Mode to Streaming in the Capture & Analysis Options dialog box. If Streaming is not active during a capture session, Live view still appears, but without any data populating the charts.
Below the charts is a report that lists all of the processes and provides an id and usage statistics for each of them. This list updates continuously as long as the capture session is running.
The Live view is intended to give feedback during a capture session. The additional functionality and data provided by the various views of Streamline are only available once you have stopped your capture session and Streamline has processed the data in the capture.
The toolbar of the Live view contains an activity monitor that shows you whether or not there is any latency in the data passing from the target. If there is no latency and Streamline is plotting live data in the charts of the Live view, the activity cursor that moves left and right is blue. If there is latency, the activity monitor is red. In the case of latency, the Live view halts scrolling until the data can catch up.
If you selected the Discard Data option in the Capture & Analysis Options dialog box, an x appears in the toolbar display, letting you know Streamline is to discard data upon termination of the capture session.
