We are currently installing a system in an indoor environment and need to optimize the deployment of our network. Should I install the Scripting Add-On package or is it enough to buy the license and activate it?
Well, it depends on the deployment needs. In a simple deployment you will typically use one of the basic Perytons Protocol Analyzer models (preferably one that supports diversity since you are deploying the network in an indoor environment). This will allow you to make sure that the devices in the network communicate with each other and identify problems.
If the installation is complicated and you face problems appearing once a while, or if this is a mission critical system where you want to make sure, over a longer period of time, what is the system performance and that there are no critical problems or you just want to add more flexibility to your analysis environment, then you may better add the Perytons™ Scripting Add-On option to your license. In such case you will typically leave a working analyzer unattended with the network, and set the User Defined Scripts for reporting message status, performance, and generating alerts, logs and statistics graphs on scenarios you define as important.
Note that only a single Peryton-Scripting Add-On license is required to write the User Defined Scripts. The resulting Script’s code can be used on all the other PCs that run a Perytons™ Protocol Analyzer license.
