Controlling data source polling


After making a change to a data source, you might want it to poll immediately to check your changes, or you might want to postpone the data collection on a data source for one, three, or five days while you work on a problem.


  1. Click Admin and navigate to the data source list view

  2. Select the data source for which you want to control the polling.

  3. Click the data source name link.

  4. On the data source summary page, check the information and click one of these two polling options:

    • Poll again to force the data source to collect data immediately.

    • Postpone and select the length of the polling delay from 3, 7, or 30 days.

After you finish

If you postponed the data collection on a data source and want to restart collection, click Resume on the summary page.
