Saving streaming mode data to disk

Post by Mattjnj »


I am developing a python application that will capture data using the ps5444D MSO. I am inexperienced when it comes to dealing with large amounts of data (~100 million samples per streaming capture). My problem is not setting up the PS and capturing data but saving/storing the data that was collected.

Am I overlooking a function within the SDK? How can I write 100 million samples to disk without looping through each sample and writing individually? I'd like to be able to capture at 10 million samples/s and be able to save that data before a second capture has completed. But as of now my code takes minutes to save to disk which simply won't work for what I am trying to do.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Thank you,
