Default Using semiconductor curvetracer for tubes...

Howdy!
I've got this Tektronix 576 curvetracer just collecting dust so I figured I could extend it's usefulnes if I were able to use it for testing tubes as well...

Will I be re-inventing the wheel again, ie is there any useful information out there? Has anyone done this already?
Any help is useful....

What data would it be most useful gathering?
What would a useful setup look like?
Of course I also got external power supplies and dmm's...

//Greg.

Here's a thread on Prodigy Pro about the 575 curve tracer,
but mentions a book with conversion info.
