You can configure a timeframe using the Set Timeframe option in order to retrieve a specific dataset. There is a limit to a maximum of the most recent 10,000 rows based on the start and end time submitted. If no data is found for the configured timeframe, a message will display indicating no data exists for the timeframe specified.

The set timeframe panel allows you to specify a timeframe and how much data will be displayed. The Start Time and Stop Time options are disabled when the "Limit history to this timeframe" checkbox is unchecked. The checkbox must be clicked in order to specify a timeframe. When the checkbox is clicked, the calendar selectors become visible and the Start Time and End Time text boxes are enabled for input. The OK button must be clicked in order to change the results displayed.If you want to revert back to the "default" dataset, then Uncheck the Limit History checkbox.
