Create a Simulink.sdi.DatasetRef object for a run



sdiDSRef = getDatasetRef(runObj) creates a Simulink.sdi.DatasetRef object, sdiDSRef, that references the data in the Simulink.sdi.Run object runObj. Use a DatasetRef object to process your data when the data is too large to fit into memory.

This example shows how to work with the Simulink.sdi.DatasetRef object by comparing two runs of the ex_sldemo_absbrake system with different desired slip ratios.

% Simulate model ex_sldemo_absbrake to create a run of logged signals

% Get the runID
runIDs = Simulink.sdi.getAllRunIDs;
runID = runIDs(end);

% Get the run object
brakeRun = Simulink.sdi.getRun(runID);

% Make a Simulink.sdi.DatasetRef object
run_DSRef = brakeRun.getDatasetRef;

% Get the names of the elements in the object
names = run_DSRef.getElementNames
names = 2x1 cell
    {'slp' }

% Get yout bus
[yout, name, index] = run_DSRef.getElement(1);

% View signals in outputs
outputs = yout.Values
outputs = struct with fields:
    Ww: [1x1 timeseries]
    Vs: [1x1 timeseries]
    Sd: [1x1 timeseries]

% Get slp signal
slp = run_DSRef.getSignal('slp');

% Plot signal
slp.Checked = 'true';
% Create another run for a different Desired relative slip
set_param('ex_sldemo_absbrake/Desired relative slip', 'Value', '0.25')
DSR_Runs = Simulink.sdi.DatasetRef;

% Compare the results from the two runs
[matches, mismatches, diffResult] =;

% Open the Simulation Data Inspector to view signals

Input Arguments

collapse all

Run with data you want to process that does not fit into memory, specified as a Simulink.sdi.Run object.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Reference to run data that you can use to process data that does not fit into memory, returned as a Simulink.sdi.DatasetRef object.
