NI VeriStand 2013 introduces a configurable workspace data logging utility so you can set up your data logging criteria and log data with the touch of a button. Using the NI VeriStand data logging tool, you can configure triggering, file size limits and segmentation, macro record and playback, and a variety of other parameters. Once you have configured your logging characteristics, you simply push a button to begin logging or monitoring for a log triggering condition.

Another feature introduced with NI VeriStand workspace data logging is direct DIAdem integration for postprocessing and report generation. Using the NI VeriStand data logging utility, you can automatically retrieve data logs from real-time targets, run custom analysis scripts in DIAdem and use predefined report templates to automatically generate reports from your real-time test data. By using a common library of analysis scripts and report templates, you can ensure that data gets processed and presented the same way every time, so that you can easily compare data from multiple tests and better understand the results.
NI VeriStand helps you get your real-time tests up and running more quickly, and DIAdem is a powerful tool for data analysis and data management. By combining these tools, you can automate the way you conduct tests, analyze results, and manage data, which will result in a more efficient development and test process and more thorough testing.
