Single simulation output

Description

Specify whether to return simulation data as a single Simulink.SimulationOutput object. Simulation data includes simulation metadata and all data logged to the workspace, including outputs, states, data store memory, signals, and data logged to the workspace using blocks.

Category: Data Import/Export

Settings

Default: On, out

On

All simulation data logged to the workspace is returned in the workspace as a single Simulink.SimulationOutput object.

Specify the name of the variable used to store the Simulink.SimulationOutput object.

Off

Simulation data is returned in one or more variables, depending on model and logging configuration.

Tips

  • When you log data using the To File block, the data logs to the specified file and does not appear in the single Simulink.SimulationOutput object.

  • When you select Log Dataset data to file, the data that logs to the MAT file does not appear in the single Simulink.SimulationOutput object.

  • Use the who function for the Simulink.SimulationOutput object to view a list of the variables in the object.

  • To use the Logging intervals parameter, you must select Single simulation output.
