What is Analyze?

Analyze is an Activity that displays your networking, X (graphical) display, and presence service status. It is useful to developers, testers and end-users as an easy way to monitor and submit data for monitoring/debugging networking/X issues.

Using Analyze

Analyze is a very simple Activity. All that you do is tell it what interface you want it to display information from.

To select an interface, click on the "Interfaces" tab at top, and then on the appropriate Interface icon (by default, Analyze will start in the Network Status screen). Here are (from left to right) the Network Status, X Server, and Presence Service interface icons.

From left to right: Network Status, X Server, and Presence Service interface icons.

Note that the Presence Service screen has 3 windows. You can drag the window boundaries up and down to resize the area of each sub-display.
