Saving Message Data

After you have loaded data through a Data Retrieval Session or captured data in a Live Trace Session and displayed it in a viewer such as the Analysis Grid, in most cases you will manipulate the data in some way to isolate specific information and analyze the issues on which you are working. For example, you might have modified your Data Retrieval Session or Live Trace Session results data in one or more of the following ways:

  • Displayed additional message fields by adding specific columns to the Analysis Grid viewer to contain new field data.

  • Applied a View Filter to isolate specific message data.

  • Created Color Rules for a data set, to highlight messages based on various protocol names, field values, states, and so on.

  • Set Viewpoints or changed the View Layout.

  • Used the Group feature to group messages according to specific criteria.

  • Sorted data according to a specific column category.

  • Applied a Column Filter or a Quick Filter.

  • Applied a Time Shift to the messages.

  • Changed your view of the data, for example, by specifying a Chart viewer such as the Protocol Dashboard and drilling down to expose further message details.

After you have used Message Analyzer data manipulation facilities to isolate a particular problem, you might want to save the data configuration that resulted from data analysis. If you save your session work, you can resume previous work at any future time, should further analysis be required. Also, saving the data from your session work is particularly useful when you need to share the results of your investigations with others.
