Specifying a File Length for Data Collection

Last Modified: August 30, 2021

Specify file lengths for data that you want your monitoring devices to collect when asset conditions set a higher severity alarm.

Before you begin, configure a trend alarm rule. InsightCM uses the value you specify for the file length to determine the size of the data collection when asset conditions set an alarm and cross a higher severity threshold.

This option will override the collection settings determined by the operating state.

Complete the following steps to specify a file length for the data collected for an alarm.
  1. Click the Navigation menu and go to Alarms»Trend Rules.
  2. Find and select the trend rule for which you want to configure a custom file length.
  3. Click Edit to bring up the Trend Alarm Rule dialog.
  4. At the bottom of the dialog, uncheck the Use default collection length checkbox to activate the File Length text field.
  5. Use the File Length text field to specify how many seconds of data InsightCM will collect when conditions set a higher severity alarm.
  6. Click OK.
The alarm rule you have just modified now collects trend data files for the length of time you specified for File Length.
