Data Lapse Agent

The EQuIS Live Data Lapse Agent will monitor data coming in via EQuIS Live and notify you if no new data has arrived within the expected period of time.


Monitoring Data


The Data Lapse Agent can be run as a scheduled EQuIS Information Agent (EIA), at the desired frequency, to automatically monitor series as often as needed. If no new data has arrived since the last time the EIA was run, then a notification will be generated for that series. Therefore, the EIA frequency should be scheduled based on frequency that the data is being reported.


The Data Lapse Agent can also be run in EQuIS Professional or Enterprise (using the EZView widget) to monitor series manually, without having to schedule an EIA. The report results will show series with no new data (i.e., data lapse) for twice the maximum DT_LOGGER.TRANSMIT_PERIOD_S of the series you select, or two times the Sleep Seconds in the Workflow - Report Generation tab; whichever is greater.


Note: The RECORD_COUNT column values will be 0 for all series in the notification, or report results, if a data lapse is present. If there is no lapsed data, there will not be a notification or report results.


The report has the following input parameters:

Monitor these series – Shows a list of series that you can select to be monitored. Series will only be visible if the DT_LOGGER.TRANSMIT_PERIOD_S field is populated (i.e., not null). The DT_LOGGER.TRANSMIT_PERIOD_S field is the number of seconds that elapse between data collection events for this data logger.

Notification defeat interval – Defines length of time (in minutes) in which there will be no further notifications sent out for the same notice.
