Do you call it digital scope or digital sampling oscilloscope?

There are two kinds of digital oscillosocpes: sampling and real-time. Real-time scopes attempt to capture a signal one sampme at a time and reconstruct it one sample after another. Thus, real-time scopes can work on any waveform. Sampling scopes sample at a slow rate but have very high bandwidth. Signals must be repetitive because the scope samples at different points on each cyle then reconstructs the waveform.

Equivant time or random interleaved sampling only works on repetitive waveforms producing a high effective sampling rate.

Real time sampling works with transient(single shot) as well as repetitive signals.
