I notice that many of the Agilent (HP, Keysight) spectrum analyzer models have a Max Hold and Min Hold trace detector.

What examples of measurements are useful using the "*Min Hold*" function?

Also, when measuring phase noise - which type of detection should be use: Max Hold, Min Hold or Trace Averaging?
