Controlling the Database Replay
When a Database Replay Display is open, the Control Bar can be used to control the replay of data from the database.
In the Web Application, data can be viewed for each collection interval by using the database buttons and slide control located at the top of the screen.
The Database Control Bar in the Windows Client can be turned on and off from the View menu and individual buttons can be activated or deactivated through the Preferences dialog box of the options menu.
