Now it is time to generate some data that matches our selected database with the Traffic Generator (aka CAN Bus Loader). Since the database contains messages with CAN identifiers from 0 to 6 we configure the Traffic Generator to generate messages with the same range of ids. Open the Traffic Generator, which can be found under the Messages menu in the main window, and select the Id tab. In the CAN Identifier frame, set lowest to 0 and highest to 6. Make sure Use extended (29-bit) identifiers is unchecked since our database uses standard identifiers.
Go to the Data tab and select Random data and make sure Random length is unchecked. While we are here, we also go to the Options tab and check the Start automatically on “Start Run” checkbox. This is a convenience feature that will start and stop the traffic generator when the Start Run and Stop buttons in the main window are pressed.
