Retrieving the sweep time when using a segment sweep

Question asked by analyzer100 on Jul 9, 2015
On the E5071C, when doing a LIN or LOG sweep, and sweep time set to Auto, if I send the following command:

:SENS:SWE:TIME?

It returns the current time it takes to make a full sweep.

If however I have a SEGMENT sweep selected, with Auto sweep times selected for each segment, it always returns a number much smaller than the sweep actually is.

Is there a way to programatically retrieve the actual sweep time?
