I currently have a LabView charting VI which allows me to monitor live data in a configurable number of strip-charts. I'd like to replace it with something more capable and more modern, but am not sure what direction to take. I'm thinking that measurement studio (Enterprise edition) would be a good choice for creating the graphical portion of the data viewer (Multiple strip charts with multiple plots in each, each chart representing a common axis type such as force, position, etc..).
Not having ever used measurement studio (I have it, just never used it), I have a few questions:
First, is this a good idea? That is, to use measurement studio to create the graphical front end with a LabView executable as the data source?
What is the best approach for passing data from the LabView exec to the measurement studio exec (Many chart streams. Up to hundreds of streams). I would like to reuse as much of my existing back-end as possible (Currently using multiplot master being fed from network streams coming from my realtime PXIe chassis).
Can private data streams be created between the LabView exec and the Measurement Studio exec (Eg: Loopback interface"? Both executables would be running on the same physical machine.
