Throttling a Source

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Sometimes, you may want to slow a data feed for testing purposes. In these cases, you can throttle your source--slow it to one row per second.

To throttle a source:

Open the source from the Sources page.

Click the throttle button in the bottom right of the window.

sl_throttle_button

The button changes to read "Throttled to 1 Row/Second":

sl_unthrottle

To revert the source to normal (unthrottled) speed, click the button again.

Managing Throttling on the Sources Page

You can use the Throttle All and Unthrottle All buttons on the Sources page to change throttling for all sources at once.

To change throttling for individual sources once you have added them, click the rocket icon in the upper right hand corner of the source:

sl_throttle_source
