we are looking for a way to save disk space by logging only the calculated RMS value of some configured channel. Currently Flexlogger saves both channels to the TDMS file which actually takes more space than just logging the physical channel at high speed, we could then post-process that channel to reduce file size which makes no sense to me, the benefit of calculating the RMS during the test is not interesting anymore.
Is there a way to configure a channel to be available for calculated channels without being logged?
I'd also like to see this feature added if it's not already possible. Just a simple 'log' flag per channel.
This feature will be very helpful. Most slow speed datalogging over a long duration will only need the RMS value. For example, I would configure multiple channels at the highest sampling rate and use 50 or 60hz based on the PLC to calculate RMS and log the RMS only. This will save tones of disk space.
