For forced regeneration you can use iCarsoft MBII. It required annoying driving cycle since. Annoying becouse you need to keep it on low gear, when every 10 seconds the computer switches paddle controls to automatic.
Than chances are that with ScanGauge monitoring you will simply see when regeneration happens and make extra loop if needed for full completion.
Once again, on my 2014 E250 regeneration had no symptoms at all and computer was still doing ECO stops (what I think is stupid)

They asked me too to collect data on my 07 w211 E320 om642. Dpf monitoring is not ready for my car but perhaps they need more data? I'm willing to drive for I believe 30min with their data loger plugged in.

For 2014 e250 which you have, I believe their website lists 4 x gauge commands. I have the 2016 e250, with to my understanding pretty much the same OM651 engine, but maybe different ECU. They were the ones that suggested sending me a couple data loggers to capture the data from the 2016 e250. I am happy to oblige if it gets me (and everyone) additional xguage command support :-).
Ok here is an update re ScanGauge II and 2016 E250 with 2.1l OM651 engine. I was waiting until my next business trip to the US to get my ScanGauge, and this was last week, so I had my ScanGauge II sent to my hotel and then just carried it back with me on my return to Canada. I have installed it and happy with it so far. Below is a pic of my current setup, followed by a pic of the sheet they sent me with X-Gauges that they pre-programmed for me (all except the highlighted ones, given the max number of x-guages that can be programmed). Again, the Scanguage folks were great to deal with, and gave me a discount given that I had went through the effort of collecting data for them on the data loggers they sent me previously. Also, I did ask them to update their website specific to the E250 bluetec data I captured, and they have done so.. click here for x-guages.

I am still playing with different gauges, but would like some advice on the best way to monitor DPF "health". RGN on or off is obvious, but curious what STL (DPF soot load %) and DPF (DPF fill level%) will trigger a regen. Checking the ScanGuage Website, it is not clear to me the difference between STL and DPF guages? I will check with ScanGauge support guys, but just curious of any input from the forum here. Also are STL and DPF actual values coming from the ECU or is this something that ScanGuage calculates or estimates?

For what it is worth, TRG (total regens) although not shown on the pic above, is 80 on my car which has about 94,000km, and I have had it since 82,000km. I assume this is accurate data from the ECU and represents 1175 km or so between regens. Is this typical or expected? Good or bad? My driving habits since having this car are almost zero short drives or starts, and most drives at least 30 min or more with a good run at least weekly.

I did not see STL X-Gauge when I was programming my ScanGauge, so good to know I have another tool.
I don't drive the car very much and to date drove 3 regeneration cycles with the gauge.
When I plug it, it did show 160% on DPF. I contact ScanGauge and they say it is normal and can go to 200%.
The regeneration did happen short time after and on following cycles. once the DPF shows 100%, the regeneration starts immediately
Once DW stop the car at early stage of regeneration and on following day, seeing that I took it for spin around the area.
Regeneration restarted once the engine warmed up to 60C and it took less than 10 miles in city driving to come down to 0
So far regeneration come every fill up, or 600 miles, but that that is mostly city driving.
In my footnotes you see 2 cars. The white had DPF deleted and mpg seems similar.
Black car shows better mpg, but it did see more of Nevada highways, where mpg skyrockets, when white car drove more on California freeways, where left lane hugers take good toll on mpg.
