To view new trend values and sensor measurements between scheduled periodic acquisitions, you can manually request that a device perform an acquisition. These requests are known as force triggers. Force triggers are useful when you want to view current asset data without waiting for the next scheduled acquisition.
Devices perform force-triggered acquisitions according to the sampling rate, duration, and other periodic-acquisition settings configured in the web application.
No. Force-triggered acquisitions do not affect the timing of scheduled periodic acquisitions that devices perform.
