This section describes the I/O Handling configuration options available within busTRACE.

Start / End Time Display Settings

Display as system time

This option allows you to see the time of the I/O using your computer's system time. For example, if the I/O starts at 10:45, you would see the time displayed as 10:45:04.234. Notice that we display the time down to the millisecond. In the example just given, this would indicate the I/O started 4.234 seconds after 10:45.

Display as extended system time This option displays the full system time including the date when the I/O was captured.
Display as time elapsed since capture started

This option is similar to the system time; however the time is relative to the start time of the capture process. For example, if an I/O started 82.423 seconds after the capture started, this would be displayed as 00:01:12.423. That is, 1 minute, 12 seconds, and 423 milliseconds.

Display as seconds elapsed since capture started

This option shows seconds elapsed since capture started, showing actual microseconds.

Time Zone

Use local system's time zone when displaying date/time busTRACE allows you to show the date/time that an I/O started and when it completed (see the Start / End Time Display Settings above). What date/time should busTRACE display if the I/O activity was captured in a different time zone? For example, let's say that you are located in California and you receive a busTRACE capture file from someone in Paris. The capture was made at 20:00 at night in Paris. In California, it is 11:00. If you select this option, busTRACE will show you the I/O date/time relative to your system (i.e. 11:00). This is the default setting.
Use capture system's time zone when displaying date/time

This option shows you the date/time on the target system which is capturing the I/O activity. Using our California / Paris example above, busTRACE will show you the I/O date/time relative to the capture system (i.e. 20:00).

Execution Time Display Settings

Display as formatted time

This option formats the execution time for easier reading. For example, if the execution time was 4.23 seconds, we would display "4.23 sec." If the time was 8.23 msec, we would display "8.23 msec."

Display as seconds elapsed

This option shows the execution time as seconds elapsed. For example, if the execution time was 4.23 seconds, we would display "4.230000." If the time was 8.23 msec, we would display "0.008230."

Hex / Decimal Display Options

Display data transfer lengths as hex

Choose this option if you want any data transfer lengths to be displayed as hex in the I/O Capture List (instead of decimal).

Display LBA and LBA count as hex

Choose this option if you want all LBA and LBA Count information display as hex (instead of decimal).
