Shared Variable Properties

Hello

Using shared variables with the waveform double type please explain the
significance of Network properties which shows options:
No. of Arrays
No. of Waveforms,
Points per Waveform.

Also elaborate for RT FIFO property in the shared variable. It has different
options like
single element, multi element etc. in the drop-down menu.

In which case it is required to enable & use this.

Thank you.

Regards,
Tej Trivedi.

The help document that RavensFan is talking about is this

 

http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371361H-01/lvdialog/network_page/

 

RT FIFOs are explained in a bit more detail at the bottom of this help document but you are mostly only going to use this when reading or writing to a variable inside of a timed loop in a real time VI. The RT FIFO functions should also be used in place of queues if you are communicating to or from a timed loop on a real time device. Not using this feature can lead to priority inversion because of shared resources between the reader and writer.

I have 32 wavefrom arrays to write using 1 shared variable. In this case when I kept no. of arrays 1 or more than 32 it didnt make any difference in the output when I read the same variable. Then what is the significance ???
