    Loupe Desktop - Repositories
    In This Topic


    On the left side of the main Loupe Desktop window is the Repository Explorer.  Each repository is a collection of application sessions and organizational structure.  Loupe has three types of repositories:

    1. Local Sessions:  The automatically maintained repository of session logs for applications run on the local computer.  Sessions in this repository are subject to automatic pruning (typically after 90 days or 150 MB of data). 
    2. Server Repository: The repository for session logs and folder structure unique to a particular server associated with your user account.  No automatic pruning is done in this repository.  You can delete this repository, removing the relationship with the Loupe Server and the locally cached data.
    3. Packages:  A package is a portable repository that works like a user repository (it can have folders and hold any number of sessions) but is stored as a single file that can be moved between users and computers to share information.  You can email packages, attach them to defect or customer service tickets, and generally work with them like you would any document file.

    When you click on a repository node in the tree view or any folder the start page is replaced with the repository view, showing information on all sessions contained in the selected node and any folder it contains.

    Any session you view is part of a repository - either a local session, your server repository, or a package that you've opened.  Regardless of how many folders include a session in a single repository there is only one copy of it.
