Background and Continuous Capture
Previous  Next

Background Capture

Background capturing facilitates high performance capturing. The GUI is not updated while capturing. The logged transactions are displayed only when capture operation is stopped.


To enable background capture, click Capture in Background button in the Capture menu. When Background Capture is enabled, the captured data is not displayed until capture operation is stopped.

Continuous Capture

For a normal capture session, USBTrace will stop capture operation when the internal log data buffer is full. With continuous capturing, this will not happen. When the buffer is full, instead of stopping capture, USBTrace will wrap around the buffer and start writing data again from the beginning. Continuous capturing simulates an infinite buffer


Continuous capture allows you to capture continuously, irrespective of the size limitations of the internal log buffer. To enable continuous capture, click Capture Continuously button in the Capture menu.
