Adding "Pause/Stop trace on a Timer" Alert Parameter to PingPlotter
How can I schedule a trace to pause or stop automatically?
Adding the Pause Trace Alert parameter to PingPlotter 5
You can install this alert parameter by:
Install PingPlotter as a service. (If already installed as a service Stop the PingPlotter 5 service at this time: Win + R > Search "Services.msc" > PingPlotter 5 Service > Stop)
Download and Unzip the file attached at the bottom of this article (Titled AlertAction_PauseTrace.Zip).
Move the AlertAction_PauseTrace folder into the appropriate locations:
Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\PingPlotter 5\Extensions
Restart the PingPlotter service.
Open up the alerts panel to find a new alert called Pause Trace.
NOTE: You can modify this alert to Close the trace instead by changing Collector.Pause() to Collector.Close() on line 15 of pausetrace.js.
