    System Requirements:


    Java 1.6 installed on the machine running the jar 


    A niscache folder (does not need to be on the robot itself)


    What it does:


    Decodes the niscache files and places the information into human-readable CSV format.


    How to use it:



    1. Get a niscache folder from a robot

    2. Unzip the provided files to your preferred folder

    3. Copy the niscache folder from step 1 onto the same system

    4. From the command line, navigate to the location where you unzipped the jar files, and run the following command:

    java -jar NisCacheFileLister.jar drive:\path\to\niscache\folder



    java -jar NisCacheFileLister.jar C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\niscache



    5. In the same folder as the jar file, three output files will be created:

    Seems like a good place to remind people that the current niscache implimentation imposes an IO bottlneck on all robots and probes that create large numbers of used or unused metrics or config items.  Interface_traffic for instance is a big culperate.  Some tuning can be done to help mitigate the effects of the filesystem hotspot, and there is an idea posted to get the limitiation addressed.
