Plot entity count versus time
This block creates a plot by counting arriving entities at each arrival time. The block restarts the count from 1 when the time changes. As a result, the count is cumulative for a given time instant but not cumulative across the entire simulation.
Use the Enable entity OUT port option to choose whether the entity advances to a subsequent block or whether the block absorbs the arriving entity.
Entity Input Ports
|IN||Port for arriving entities, which the block counts.|
Entity Output Ports
|OUT||Port for departing entities. You see this port only if you select Enable entity OUT port.|
To open the block dialog box, click the Parameters toolbar button in the plot window.
Causes the block to have an entity output port labeled OUT, through which the arriving entity departs. If you clear this box, the block absorbs arriving entities.
Selecting this option causes the plot window to open when you start the simulation. If you clear this box, you can open the plot window by double-clicking the block icon.
The interval shown on the X axis at the beginning of the simulation. The interval might change from this initial setting due to zooming, autoscaling, or the If X value is beyond limit setting.
Determines how the plot changes if one or more X values are not within the limits shown on the X axis. For details, see Vary Axis Limits Automatically.
The interval shown on the Y axis at the beginning of the simulation. The interval might change from this initial setting due to zooming, autoscaling, or the If Y value is beyond limit setting.
Determines how the plot changes if one or more entity counts are not within the limits shown on the Y axis. For details, see Vary Axis Limits Automatically.
Toggles the grid on and off.

Displays the number of plotted points using an annotation in the plot window.

cache all data for future viewing,
cache a portion of the most recent data, and
avoid caching undisplayed data.
The number of data points the block caches, using the most recent
data. You see this field only if you set Store data when scope is closed to
