Dynamic time delay between wright and read

Hi All

I'm working on a instrument control session with my DSO-X4043A Oscilloscope and LabView.

I have made a VI that sets up a VPP measument and it works fine. Until I set the aqusition type to "Average" and ask it to do this over 128 measurements.
I suspect that this is due to the fact that it takes to long to do this averaging. So that I try to read before the data is ready.

I get the -1073807339 timeout error after my read command and when I check the scopes error log afterwards I get a "Instrument reports:
-221,"Settings conflict"" massage.

Since I'm running this over ethernet, I dont have the option of monitoring the amount of data ready to be read.

My question is therefore: Is there a way to determin when the scope is ready to "unload" the data?

I know I could set up a time delay, but I'm doing quite a lot of measurements. So I would like to have this VI running as fast as posible.

Help is much appreciated

Regards Rasmus
