Issue Details

I have a Citadel database with many traces that I have written to the database without using shared variables. How can I access all of the properties of the traces I have written?


After traces are written to the Citadel database, you can use the Get Trace Info VI located in the DSC palette to retrieve the following information:
  • First timestamp within trace
  • Last timestamp within trace
  • Data type of the trace
In addition to this, you can make SQL queries to get information about your trace as the Citadel database is SQL compliant. You can check this White Paper for more information.
