You can use
to create and edit scheduled capturing tasks. This is useful when
you want CommView to start and/or stop capturing when you are not
around, for example, at night or on weekends. To add a new task,
click Tools => Scheduler,
and then click on the Add button.
Use the Start
to specify the date and time when CommView will start capturing.
Use the Channel drop-down
list to specify the WLAN channel that should be monitored. Use
to specify the date and time when CommView will stop capturing. You
do not necessarily have to check both Start
capturing and Stop
If you check only the first box, capturing would go on until you
manually stop it. If you check only the second box, you would have
to start capturing manually, but then CommView would automatically
stop capturing at the specified time.
If CommView is already capturing packets at the time when the
scheduled task is due and if the adapter you specified is different
from the adapter currently being monitored, CommView will stop
capturing, switch to the adapter you specified, and restart
It is important to understand that the scheduled tasks can be
performed only when CommView is running.
