How to Turn Off Systemlink on-the-Fly-Reporting in Teststand

SystemLink Test Monitor automatically collects individual step results with on-the-fly reporting enabled by default. This is similar to the normal on-the-fly reporting of the builtin TestStand process models. How do I enable or disable this feature?

  1. Open the SystemLink Test Monitor sequence file located at: C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\TestStand 2020 (32-bit)\Components\Models\ModelPlugins\NI_TestMonitorClient.seq
  2. View the sequences contained in the file by doing one of the following:
    1. Select the Sequences tab on the right-hand window
    2. Select View>>Sequence File>>Sequences from the toolbar
  3. Find the sequence Model Plugin-OnTheFly Step Results and double click
  4. Check the box called Disable Result Recording for All Steps as desired
  5. Save the sequence file and run the desired test as normal

This change will enable or disable the on-the-fly result reporting.

Disabling on-the-fly reporting in the SystemLink Test Monitor sequence module will help with issues with asynchronous TDMS logging/other local logging methods which may compete for CPU time.
