System functions

System functions are all of the primary administration functions of mvIMPACT-CS.

Monitoring

The monitor displays the results of the test. This is also the standard page that is displayed automatically upon connection.

Configuration

Configuration allows inspection programs to be created, tested and modified. This enables live testing of tools to be carried out immediately. Each change made to the parameters is visible straight away.
The tool results that are to be logged and displayed on the monitor are also defined.

Statistics

The statistics tool provides a statistical analysis of the results of the test.
All numerical tool output values (output properties) that are marked as being of interest (monitored) are statistically recorded. These data can be displayed on the statistics page using a range of different diagrams.
