Executing and Stopping a Data Collection Job

Use the Properties view to execute or stop a data collection job.

Most of the time, data collection jobs should run on a schedule; you should rarely need to start or stop a job manually.
  1. In the Perspective Resources view, select the resource associated with the job and select Resource > Properties.
  2. Select Collection Jobs.
  3. Select the job and:
    • To execute a job immediately, click Execute.
    • To stop a job, click Stop, then click Yes to confirm.
