Is it possible to go back in time and see historical trace data?
CA-Insight stores trace data into its Data Collector memory. You can choose to keep the trace data in memory for later viewing, but user started traces can not be directly stored into datasets, although it is possible to do this. For those who own Detector, they can use the Detector trace facility instead, since Detector writes trace data directly to data sets which can be stored off for as long as needed. Check Chapter 10, the section labelled "Save Trace Data" in the CA Insight DPM User Guide.
