Re: "Total Data Size" property of running VI in LabVIEW 7.1 doesn't work any more?

Just bumped into this problem and did find the answer in this thread dating back to 2005.  So, is there a way to do this with 7.1 or 7.1.1 or not?

From the 2005 discussion, the resolution was that in LabVIEW 7.1 and later, you cannot read the memory used by a running VI.
I just ran both example programs posted in 2005, and no - you still cannot read the Total Data Size of a VI when it is running.  I ran both programs in LabVIEW 8.5.1.

So, how does one debug potential memory leaks or fragmentations?We have about 2700 VIs written by four or five people, part of two or three "top-level" VIs we call over and over again, and  a very small leak, as far as I can tell by the rate of increase in the execution time and program size/memory/handles.  These are all part of an LV executable we call remotely through a crude TCP interface at the rate of 25k calls per month.  We don't even have LV on that machine.There's got to be a way to find out where the problem is that doesn't imply staring at every single of those VIs.  And divide and conquer is a bit hard at this point, given the amount of code and associated instrumentation.

From what I have learned, there is no direct replacement for the Total Data Size property for use with running VIs.  There are two semi-replacements, but neither one has the complete functionality of the former property node.
First, you can gather system information from the command prompt.&nbsp; However, all LabVIEW information is listed under one item.&nbsp; This <a href="http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/B5889EB5349FAC478625723E00090265?OpenDocument" target="_blank">article</a> explains more. 
Second, you can use the memory profiler tool in LabVIEW.&nbsp; Tools � Profile � Performance and Memory
Note that you can also continue to use your LabVIEW 6.1 executable that functions as you want.
I hope this helps,Kevin S.Applications EngineerNational Instruments

Thanks for your efforts.&nbsp; A couple of comments/questions. Using cmd or task manager is so 1990s.&nbsp; One can do so much better with Process Explorer, part of Sysinternals, which recently was acquired by Microsoft.&nbsp; Download that utility and use it instead of the standard task manager (which is an option on one of the pull down menus).&nbsp; Select a process, double click on it, and one can even see usage stats per thread, running threads, etc.&nbsp; Still, it is hard to traceback from a given thread to whatever LV is doing.On 7.1 I don't seem to thave Tools-&gt;Profile-&gt;Performance and Memory, I have Tools-&gt;Advance-&gt;Profile VIs..., which may or not be the same.&nbsp; And how does one invoke such a beast from within an executable?As far as going back to 6.1, I'm not sure we could build our code under 6.1, but it may be possible.

Yes, the monitoring utility I was referring to is available at Tools � Advanced � Profile VIs on LabVIEW 7.1.&nbsp; (The path I specified earlier is for later versions of LabVIEW.)&nbsp; Presently, I know of no way to invoke this utility from inside a LabVIEW&nbsp;executable.&nbsp; If I do learn of how to do this, I can update this post.

How can I modify the &quot;Type definitions&quot; of &quot;Function Prototype&quot; if I want build a DLL in Labview 8.5.1.?
Hello,We have a library with several VIs (API - Interfaces to our Real Time Target). This VIs we provide to our customer to generate own VIs to control the Real Time Target.Now we want to provide the functionality of this VI-library as DLL to our customer. The problem is, that labview use self definite name of type definitions. Also if I use "strict Type definition".Example:void GetOutputValues(VARIANT *Scale_In, int32_t ModelNr, uint16_t SignalID[], TD1:smileymad: *errorIn, VARIANT *Scale_Out, TD2 *Data, TD1 *errorOut, int32_t len)It is possible to modify "TD1" and "TD2"?

Hi all. &nbsp; 1) What the difference between "Wait Until Next ms Multiple" and&nbsp; "wait"&nbsp;&nbsp; vi's ? 2) If i put thos vi's inside state machine, for example, inside state number 3, when the program reach to this state, the delay will ganerate&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; before or after the execution of other component in this state&nbsp; ? &nbsp; &nbsp; thanks :) Both will start in parallel to all the other nodes in the same frame but they still have different finctionality.&nbsp;You cannot guarantee&nbsp;what starts first.&nbsp;The main differences show up if you have other slow tasks in other frames of the same state or the slow task starts before the wait. &nbsp; Wait next ms multiple: This is only useful in a loop, because it tries to keep the same time frequency, irrespective of how long other nodes take. The first call might be way off. &nbsp; Analogy: Do something always 10 minutes after the hour.

Is &quot;write to digital line.vi&quot; compatible in LabVIEW 7.0
I developed a LabVIEW program to change the logic state of a digital line using the "write to digital line.vi". This was first done in labVIEW 6.1. The version was later upgraded to LabVIEW 7.0 later and the VI doesn't seem to perform the function correctly, meaning when I tried to change the line state from "low" to "high", it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Is this because of compatibility issue of "write to digital line.vi" with LabVIEW 7.0? Thanks! There should be no problem using the traditional DAQ driver in 7.0. After installing 7.0, did you reinstall traditional DAQ? Does the traditional DAQ driver show up in MAX? Do you get any error when you run the VI? Yes, the traditonal NI-DAQ still shows up in MAX under software as well as the Devices and interfaces (because I have traditional NI-DAQ (legacy) devices). Can I have both the traditional NI-DAQ and the NI-DAQmx on my computer? When we first ran it, it did come up with a error message. But after we installed the legacy NI-DAQ (I guessed it is the traditional Ni-DAQ), the error goes away. Could you read anything from it? Thanks a lot! The two can coexist though it has been quite a while since I've had to do it. The thing to make sure is that if the card is supported by both drivers, that the driver you want to use is the active one. You can check and reset it in MAX. ...

'Serial Port Init.vi' problems between versions 6.1 &amp; 7.1 of Labview
Hi there, &nbsp; I created a Card Test Program using Labview 6.1 in 2003, it now requires changes to be carried out. &nbsp; My company is now using Labview 7.1, however, once I have created an executable from the vi's and attempt to run it on the target system&nbsp;I get an Error 37 with the 485 card, labview device not found. Yet if the changes are made within Labview 6.1 it runs fine (but as we are now using labview 7.1 it is preffered that I use that. &nbsp; I presume this is an issue with the 'Serial Port Init.vi' that I am using, everything else works fine, except any of the vi's that are used to initialise, communicate with and close a 485 port. Is there any differences between the ?Serial Port Init.vi? that comes with Labview 6.1 and that which comes with Labview 7.1. Any help gratefully appreciated. &nbsp; Regards &nbsp; Simon Snoddy It is the old serial functions that I am using. The data is being sent directly from an FPGA, I therefore have to use the 'Type Cast' function to convert the string into binary so that I can manipulate it, but at the moment, using Labview 7.1 I can't even initialise the 485 ports. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Cheers Simon Hello Simon, The issue that you are seeing is due to the fact that serial communications methods in LabVIEW were changed between LabVIEW 6.1 and LabVIEW 7.x. The serial compatibility vi's that you were using were modified to make use of VIS...

Where can I get example code &quot;Row Col to Range format.vi&quot; for LabVIEW 5.1?
In the example code section, there is a VI called Row Col to Range format.vi, but it is for LabVIEW version 8 and will not work with Version 5.1 that I have.&nbsp; Somehow, we have misplaced this VI and I cannot change the existing .EXE that uses this VI without it. Thanks for your help. Hi tater Here's a copy of Row Col to Range Format.vi in LabVIEW 5.1.&nbsp; (I changed the name to reflect that it is in this specific version.&nbsp; You will need to change it back.)

Can't &quot;show terminal&quot; in tcp i/o properties in VBAI 3.5.1
I'm trying to debug my tcp communication but am not able to see the terminal. The "show terminal" button is grayed out in the tcp I/O properties. I have installed the 3.5.1. update. Anybody know why this would be? Dear BAM787, Is the "TCP Communication Terminal" also grayed out in the VBAI Tools menu? Are other items in the tools menu grayed out?I would try repairing VBAI from the Windows Add/Remove Programs menu. This should find any missing comonents and install them. Please let me know if this helps!~Nate ...
