I am experiencing a slowing down of the windows clock on two separate LabVIEW vi's. The two vi's use different daq boards (PC TIO 10 and 4351). I don't have any other software running. Has anyone encountered this? Is there a fix?
The windows clock is very unreliable for anything more accurate than a minute. Things like mouse events, key press', screen savers, etc. can throw windows timing way off. Also, optimizing your program could improve performance. Things like declaring constants outside of loops rather than inside, limiting the number of locals and globals, etc. On zone.ni.com there are some interesting articles about writing more efficient LabVIEW code. For accurate timing it is not wise to rely on windows, it would be better to use hardware timing or look into LabVIEW RT (Real Time).
