svlLauncherCustomer (all tools)

This is a launcher for various Validator tools. The launcher can launch the tool normally, or with 2 different data collection modes.

To use, find the tool you want to use, choose the operating mode you want then click the button with the tool name. This operating mode affects only this run of the tool.

The options are:

  • Normal.
  • Record Full Message Statistics.
    Collects aggregate timing data for event messages sent from the target to the user interface. Slight slowdown.
  • Record Partial Message Statistics.
    Collects aggregate and individual timing data for event messages sent from the target to the user interface. Can get very slow and consume a lot of memory.

The timing data is stored in the recorded session and cannot be viewed except with tools at Software Verify Ltd.

Do not use this tool unless you have been asked to use it by staff at Software Verify Ltd. Using this tool will only make the software run slower. It is for diagnostic purposes only.

Download svlLauncherCustomer.exe.
