Sometimes its useful to be able to replay data from a particular time window. This could be to backfill historical data, to replay into a different environment for development purposes, or to collect more fine grained data for a time window for troubleshooting purposes.
The PowerConnect Cloud agent has replay capability as part of its feature set.
