Selecting a Point In Time or a Time Range
Depending on what page the Time Line appears, you can select a point in time or a time range.
There are two ways to look at information about your cluster—its current status and health, or its status and health at some point (or during some interval) in the past. When you are looking at a point in the past, some functions may not be available. For example, on a Service Status page, the Actions menu (where you can take actions like stopping, starting, or restarting services or roles) is accessible only when you are looking at Current status.
