Protocol Analyzer
To use the software for protocol analysis, first select File > New Project for a new project or File > Open to open an existing protocol analysis .gep file. (see “Protocol Analysis” on page 33.) You can also open a .get example file. Example files are in the Examples folder. You can also select File > Recent Projects to open a project you had recently saved.
Note: Select File from the main menu Analyzer Menu Bar or click on the Hide Menubar icon and select File > Open. Clicking the Alt key toggles showing/hiding the Analyzer Menu Bar.
Note: The application prevents the host machine from going into sleep mode to avoid loss of traces.
The software menus and toolbar options are explained in detail in “Software Menus and Toolbar” on page 36.
For more information on Analyzer Settings refer to “Analyzer Settings” on page 49.

The Easy Mode provides the quickest way to configure the analyzer to filter and trigger on events of interest. See “Trigger Filter Settings in Easy Mode” on page 64.
Use Advanced Mode only after you become familiar with the hardware and software and have special needs. To start working with the protocol analyzer and software. For more information on Advanced Mode refer to “Advanced Mode (User‐Defined)” on page 104.
