  At the light source BESSY II new digital bunch-by-bunch feedback systems have been put into operation in January 2013, replacing the existing analog as well as the obsolete digital systems. From the first days of operation the new system successfully suppresses transverse and longitudinal beam instabilities in wide range of machine parameters. The system offers also many new diagnostics opportunities, these include the analysis of instability modes, measurement of the feedback loop gain, and determination of the transfer function. A method to systematically optimise the output amplifier response function with the help of shaper coefficients for the optimal bunch separation has been developed. In addition the analysis of the input data stream allows a passive determination of machine properties like betatron and synchrotron frequencies as well as the longitudinal phases for every bunch. The integration of external triggers permits the analysis of postmortem data, the characterisation of beam-loss events, and monitoring of the injection process. In this contribution first operational experience, the developed data analysis techniques and experimental data will be presented.
