The Monitor offers a quick indication of 1394 bus activity. The monitor displays the number of packets passed on the bus and some additional events. The packets are differentiated to speed and type, including all isochronous, asynchronous, PHY packets and acknowledge packet types. Also the number of packets with different kinds of errors and the IEEE-1394 bus voltage are monitored and displayed.
The standalone version of the Monitor can be used to control multiple FireSpy devices at the same time from within a single user interface up to a total of 9 buses.
