TV graphically examines ETS and Mnesia tables.


The TV application has been superseded by the Observer application. TV will be removed in R16.

TV enables the user to examine ETS and Mnesia tables. Once a certain table has been opened in the tool, the content may be viewed at various levels of detail. The content viewed may also be sorted, using any element as key. The table may be polled anytime; either regularly at specified intervals, or manually. New and deleted objects, as well as those altered, are marked with characteristic colors.
