What’s the easiest way to run line commands with the Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer?
Rena Ayeras

Question from the Customer:

I’m using the Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer - Standard Edition to monitor a Blu-ray recorder with an external USB-HDD. I’d like to run the device using command line.  This is all very new to me – can you send me an example of batch script? I’ll be using a MacBook.

Response from Technical Support:

Thanks for your question! The Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer is a world-class USB bus monitor that provides real-time interactive capture and analysis of USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 traffic. We’ll be glad to help you get started.


Here is an example of commands that you can run from a file (which we’ll call dctest.txt). To use this batch script, all you have to do is:

  1. Create dctest.txt on your MacBook with the following commands:

    con 0





    export output.csv {}

    exit 1

  2. On your MacBook, open a terminal and enter Data\ Center.app/bin/datacenter -b dctest.txt
  3. The Data Center Software will start up, run the script and then close.

For more information, please refer to the sections Command Line Options/Batch Mode and Command Line Window in the Data Center Software User Manual.  Here’s an example of what the Command Line Window looks like:
