Does anyone use it? Which values can be monitored with DeviceLink while flying online and which one only offline?

According to the DeviceLink.txt which can be found in the install dir of the installation.

Usage only offline and rest you can read yourself.

DeviceLink.txt

The DeviceLink interface is meant to provide the third-party software with the
current condition of the player's aircraft as well as allow an unified method of
connecting alternative operating controls.

DeviceLink utilizes the UDP protocol to transfer the data. In this network, IL2
plays a part of the server. The external application sends a query packet, in
reply, IL2 sends back one (or several) packets containing the query result.
Proposing using the protocol within a single computer, ar a local network, no
data encoding is used and data integrity CRC-checks are not taken. Packets do
contain only symbolic information, the allowed range is (0x21-0x7e). A query
packet is preceded with an 'R' symbol, the resulting packed is preceded with an
'A'; followed by one or several "key"/"value" pairs. The "key" is the number
identifying a parameter. The "value" may be omitted or consist of a number of
copies. The semantics of the "value" depends on the parameter itself. The "keys"
are preceded with a '/', the "values" are preceded with a '\'. If a "value" is
to contain one of these symbols, it is preceded with a '\'. There are two types
of "keys" - (get) requiring to return the value of the given parameter, and
(set) setting the given parameter. The (get) keys are even while the latter ones
are odd. "Get-keys" may contain values for the specified parameter, the answer
packet returns the "value" with the "get-key". "Set-keys" may contain values for
the parameter, but with these the reply contains none.

Ex.:

key 40 - altimeter
key 81 - power
Query packet - R/40/81\1.6e-1
Return the aircraft altitude, and set the power to 1.6e-1.
Reply (answer) packet - A/40\534.3
Returns the current altitude 534.3 meters MSL.

The DeviceLink interface is activated if the [DeviceLink] section is found in the
conf.ini file. Within this section, "port" specifies the number of UDP port for
data transfer.
Using "host" parameter one can specify the address of the network interface in
use.
The "IPS" parameter restricts the allowed client IP addresses. If the "IPS"
parameter is not found in the section, any IP address is allowed to connect.

Ex.:

[DeviceLink]
port=10000
IPS=10.1.1.3 10.1.1.8

Port number is 10000, allowed clients are 10.1.1.3 and 10.1.1.8.

So you can't read instruments online, but you can control input devices (eg throttle) online ???
