Issue Details

I'm using VeriStand to capture a real-time trace using the Real-Time Execution Trace Toolkit. I'm trying to use the Trace Buffer Size control in my Workspace to edit the size of my traces, like the image shown below:

However, when I change the buffer size and trigger another trace, the size of the trace does not seem to change.  How can I change the size of the buffer?


To update the buffer size, you'll need to restart your controller. After the restart, the buffer size will be set the next time you trigger a trace.

Additional Information

The buffer size is determined the first time that you run a trace. See the documentation on the TraceTool Start, which launches real-time traces. According to the Buffer Size argument, you have to restart your controller to change the buffer size once it has been set the first time.
