Each time the data changes (from a new capture or loading a previous capture), Each defined signal parses the data into an internal state table to be used by all search, export, print and display routines. Signals that use plug-ins, stream the data through the plug-in before storage.
Multiple signals can use the same plug-in. Therefore, each signal sends its configuration to the plug-in before each parse run. The configuration items are defined by the parser and independently selected by the user for each signal.
