Parent Topic: Methods for Initiating Device Acquisitions
To view new trend values and sensor measurements between scheduled periodic acquisitions, you can manually request that a device perform a periodic acquisition. These requests are known as force triggers. Force triggers are useful when you want to quickly observe the state of equipment in response to an alarm or other report of an issue. You can perform a force trigger from the Action menu on the trend viewer toolbar on the Data Viewer page or on the Devices or Device Dashboard page.
