I am developing a stand alone application using sbRIO (having RT VI and FPGA VI) and logging data to a Host PC (Host VI)..
the point is that i need my RT target to detect if a LAN disconnection occured (e.g. host pc crashed) , it should do a certain data collection until the LAN connection is retrieved..
I Dont know if there is something similar to pinging between the RT and host that is periodically done to check the connectivity ?
Thanks in advance

Why not sent a "heartbeat" message every second. This way, if the heartbeat does not occur after a certain period, the local data collection can occur. Other messages can be sent to grab the local data and reinstate data streaming.
Brilliant !! and simple !
