Editing and Managing Snapshots

Snapshots are static copies of data in InterSystems TotalView™ For Asset Management, for future review. Once you have defined snapshots, you can run them, either on a schedule or manually. This page describes how to edit and manage them; another page describes the basics of defining them.

Viewing the Snapshots Dashboard

To view the Snapshots Dashboard, click the Snapshot icon in the application menu.

This page enables you to see all the snapshots. For each snapshot, the page displays the following information.

  • Status—Status of the snapshot, which can be Idle, Running, or Error.

  • Snapshot Name—Name of the snapshot.

  • Snapshot Description—Description of the snapshot.

  • Table Name—Name of the table in which the current version of this snapshot is stored.

  • Life Cycle—Displays the life cycle state of the snapshot, which can be Active (the initial state), Disabled, or Deleted.

    Only Active snapshots can be scheduled.

Click any snapshot in order to view it or make changes.

To filter the display, use the options above the column headers.

Editing a Snapshot

To edit a snapshot:

  1. Click the Snapshot icon in the application menu.

  2. Click the snapshot you want to edit.

    The snapshot definition is displayed.

  3. Click Edit.

  4. Make changes in the same way as when you create a snapshot.

    If you change the SQL query used in the snapshot, click Parse Query so that the system can update the structure of the associated table, if needed. If the snapshot definition now defines a different set of columns, the system automatically generates a new table that has the required columns. The older table is left alone. The system displays an informational message about this change.

  5. Click Save.

    Or click Delete Draft to cancel your edits.

Retagging a Snapshot Run

If you have run a snapshot, you can change that tag that is associated with any particular run of that snapshot. To do so:

  1. Click the Snapshot icon in the application menu.

  2. Click the snapshot.

    The snapshot definition is displayed.

  3. Click Snapshot History.

  4. In the row for the run that you want to retag, click the Edit icon in the Tag Name column.

  5. Type a new tag and press Enter.
