We just want to stop the "clock" on the CAS so that it stops its aggregating tasks. Therefore when you login it would just show data up to the time it was "stopped" . This is what is done on say a DCRUM demo system for example. It involves stopping certain scheduled tasks on the CAS but I not seen any info for when this is a CAS cluster...
True, but I think that wont stop the clock ticking on the CAS as it were e.g if I had stopped the data feed say two days ago, then I would have two days on the CAS with no data... Eventually after 10 days of no data, all my 5 minute data would be gone and replaced with 10 days of no data?
As Tomasz stated the clock ticks only when samples are processed. So if no samples are processed the CAS clock stops. Daily maintenance tasks are also scheduled with sample-based time so they will not be triggered.
Thanks for your answers but it appears that's not what I am seeing on the CAS in question . I did disable the AMD data feed to CAS 3 hours ago, and now the CAS says there is a delay of 3 hours in the processing time with the red octagon icon. I totally agree in that it is now only showing data up to say 3 hours ago but the clock appears to be ticking still on the CAS...
Most scheduled tasks are based of 'SAMPLES' time (so only will run as new data is processed).
are a couple that run on 'SERVER' time (so will run based on the
clock), two of these will expire/aggregate old data, and need to be
stopped - or re-configed to run on SAMPLES time, which won't change
without new data coming in.
One unorthodox way of freezing the time of that particular CAS is removing the license from it... This way you'll always see the CAS showing the time on the day the license expired/stopped working.
