Document PROFINET performance with software monitors

November 25, 2013 // By Julien Happich
The PROFINET Diagnostics Suite from Softing offers extensive features to support the analysis of the network status as well as for early error detection and correction.

The software includes several methods for viewing and analysing the network communication, and supports passive, active, and offline monitoring principles. An Identification & Maintenance (I & M) information supports the maintenance personnel in identifying and replacing malfunctioning devices. The software also maintains a list of communication events. Each event is hyperlinked to the according data frame for quick reference.
