I am writing an application to monitor a continuous (many hours) process using an MDO3104 scope. Input signals will trigger a sample every 10 seconds or so, and the computer will fetch it from the scope shortly thereafter.
[ Please insert by reference the usual newbie apology here ]
Multitasking: can the scope be relied upon to wait for a trigger for the next cycle, and process ethernet-based commands to download data from this cycle at the same time?
Query/update sync: do I have to manage possible collisions between the scope updating the waveform for cycle "n+1" while the computer is downloading cycle "n"? For example, does the scope transfer data to the computer out of waveform memory, or does it make a snapshot first?
I have the 1158-page programmer's manual, but can't find any documentation about this issue. If this is written down somewhere else, I would appreciate a pointer to it.
