LabVIEW does not support debugging applications on the WSN node. To debug a WSN application, send debug messages to the WSN gateway via radio communications. You also can blink the LED on the device to indicate sample state so that you have a visual indication that the application is working.

Debug messages contain diagnostic error information and are sent by the WSN node to the WSN gateway if the WSN node crashes. You cannot send debug messages from the host. When the WSN node sends debug messages, the radio powers on, and the message is sent immediately and synchronously. Error messages that are too large for a single radio packet are truncated and sent via multiple radio messages. Use the Config Node to determine the maximum packet size.

You can view debug messages in the WSN System Monitor. Right-click LabVIEW WSN Target in the Project Explorer window and select WSN System Monitor to display the WSN System Monitor.
