Simulink.sdi.getRequiredFreeSpace

Get configured minimum disk space requirement for logging

    Description

    example

    minDiskSpace = Simulink.sdi.getRequiredFreeSpace returns the minimum free disk space requirement configured for logging, in units of GB.

    Examples

    You can limit the size of logged data by specifying a maximum size for the data or a minimum amount of disk space to leave empty. This example uses several functions to get the current configuration of logging size limits.

    Use the Simulink.sdi.getRequiredFreeSpace function to get the configured minimum free disk space requirement. The returned value uses units of GB.

    minDiskSpace = Simulink.sdi.getRequiredFreeSpace;

    Use the Simulink.sdi.getMaxDiskUsage function to get the configured maximum size for data logged to disk. The returned value uses units of GB.

    maxSize = Simulink.sdi.getMaxDiskUsage;

    Use the Simulink.sdi.getDeleteRunsOnLowSpace function to get the configured behavior when approaching the logging limits. When deleteRuns is true, data from prior simulations is deleted first to free disk space for continued logging in the current simulation. If deleting runs does not free up enough space, recording logged data is disabled for the current simulation. When deleteRuns is false, recording logged data is disabled for the current simulation and data from prior simulations is retained.

    deleteRuns = Simulink.sdi.getDeleteRunsOnLowSpace;
