Using the Interface

The interface provides access to the data stored, configuration of the processes, and provides user processes. The interface is connecting often to a fairly large datastore, and some actions may take longer than expected as the amount of data in a request may be large.

Fluency Cloud

Note: Google Chrome is preferred, IE may not be supported

When first logging into the system, the data is cold. The login event triggers a load of the last 24 hours to move into hot storage. For large systems, this may take a number of minutes. When data requests fall outside of the loaded window, the system will need to load that data section into active (hot) memory.


The system stores all time in GMT.
