TestStand can automatically log results from executions to a database and provides built-in step types for accessing databases directly from test sequences.
The database logging capability is not native to the TestStand Engine or the TestStand Sequence Editor. The NI_DatabaseLogger.seq process model plug-in implements the database logging features. You can also customize or replace any portion of the database logging plug-in.
The default process model, which calls the Main sequence in the client sequence file to test a UUT, relies on the automatic result collection capabilities of the engine to accumulate the raw data to log to a database for each UUT. The engine automatically compiles the result of each step into a result list for an entire sequence, which contains the result of each step and the result list of each subsequence call it makes.
The Test UUTs and Single Pass Execution entry points in the TestStand process models log the raw results to a database. By default, the Test UUTs Execution entry point logs results after each pass through the UUT loop.
