A partial execution is a way of testing a portion of the measurement routine without running it completely.
There are various ways to run a partial execution -- mini-routines, from Block, etc.
Shortcuts are CTRL+U, CTRL+E, etc..
If repeated partial executions cause PC-DMIS to crash or experience performance issues, what might be happening is something we refer as a memory leak
This is where data from the partial runs gets incrementally stored in a RAM buffer until there is not enough RAM left for normal PC functioning.
- Try adding a print command at the end, of your program.
- Set the Previous_Runs as: PREVIOUS_RUNS=DELETE_INSTANCES
If the RAM won't release, it may be necessary to close/re-start PC-DMIS. Reducing the number of concurrently-running programs on the PC should also help.
