Using Displays to Replay Databases

A new or existing Display can be used to view Database Collection or Summary data. From the Database tab of the Display Properties dialog box you can use the following steps to set up your Database replay.

With a Display running in the workspace click the  icon on the Toolbar to open the Display properties dialog box.

Select the Database tab then complete the following fields as required:

Database Details
Node
Select the node that the database is stored on.

Name
Enter the name of the database to be replayed.

Location
Enter the directory path , or for HPE NonStop the volume/subvolume.

Period
Two drop down list boxes allow you to select a start and stop time for the database replay. You can select either a pre-defined data replay period, or you can choose 'Specific time' and then set your own replay period in the adjacent time fields (these will appear after selecting "Specific Time"). Alternatively, you can also select 'Relative to current time...'

Relative to Current time
This selection allows you to specify the start and/or end time of the replay relative to the current time. For example, if the current time is 9.13am and you select to start "2 hours ago" then this actually means 7am. However, if you specified "120 minutes ago" this would mean 7.13am. Similarly for other time units.

Note that the calculations are done in the database server’s time zone.

Daily time Window
Specifies the period of the day that the collected data is to be replayed.

Use Collection Interval
When this box is checked the settings in the Interval field will be disabled. The database server will then use the interval that the data was collected on instead. This permits a database replay to continue replaying data as the active Database Collection receives new data.

Interval
Specifies the time interval in which the collected data is refreshed. The first field allows the input of the time period whilst the second field allows selection of the time interval, i.e. seconds through to days.

Select another tab or click on OK to save.
