The following subcommands can be used with the collector command within dbx to control the collection of experiment data by the Collector. The subcommands are ignored with a warning if an experiment is active.
Disable data collection. If a process is running and collecting data, it terminates the experiment and disables data collection. If a process is running and data collection is disabled, it is ignored with a warning. If no process is running, it disables data collection for subsequent runs.
Enable data collection. If a process is running but data collection is disabled, it enables data collection and starts a new experiment. If a process is running and data collection is enabled, it is ignored with a warning. If no process is running, it enables data collection for subsequent runs.
You can enable and disable data collection as many times as you like during the execution of any process. Each time you enable data collection, a new experiment is created.
Suspends the collection of data but leaves the experiment open. Sample points are not recorded while the Collector is paused. A sample is generated prior to a pause, and another sample is generated immediately following a resume. This subcommand is ignored if data collection is already paused.
