Snapshot editor


This editor essentially provides a means for you to configure Snapshots that have already been generated (see Generate a Snapshot). A snapshot:

  • is a dated and labelled metrics picture of an Application
  • governs the generation of data that can be exploited in the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard/CAST Engineering Dashboard
  • is derived from data created during the analysis process and the filters defined in your Modules
  • is used extensively in the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard/CAST Engineering Dashboard

The editor can be accessed from:

Main Field Headings
Name Displays the Snapshot Name - this is defined when you generate the Snapshot (if the Name states "Computed on: " then the CAST Management Studio will have automatically defined the Name during the creation process).

You can edit this Name if required using the Update button.

Notes

  • The Name defined here will also be displayed in the CAST Engineering Dashboard.
Capture Date Displays the date and time the Snapshot was generated - this is defined when you generate the Snapshot. You can edit the field by clicking the Update option to launch a wizard containing a calendar to help you choose the date/time:

Note that you can also choose the Hours (24 hour clock applies) and Minutes using the Time field underneath the date selector. When complete, the Capture Date will be displayed as follows: DD/MM/YY HH:MM

Version This field displays the Version name defined in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool. You can edit it if required using the Update button.

New Version Enter the Version's new name. The update is confined to the current snapshot only and does not modify the Version in the Application editor. Updating is immediate and results can be seen in the CAST Engineering Dashboard instantly:

Apply version to child modules This option will apply the new name to all modules that are children of the Application for which the snapshot was generated. By default this is selected. Deactivating the option and renaming a Version will cause Modules to retain the previous Version name:

Application This field displays the Application to which the Snapshot is assigned. Click the link to open the Application editor.
System This field lists the "System" to which the snapshot belongs. You can find out more about this in the Dashboard Service editor (Portfolio tab).
Modules This section lists all the Modules (see Modules tab in the Application editor) that the Snapshot is calculated on.
Dashboard Service This field is read-only and displays the Dashboard Service to which the Snapshot is assigned. Click the link to open the Dashboard Service editor.
