Getting Data In

Heavy Forwarder: Queue events


Can a heavy forwarder be configured to queue event data and hold it until a specified time? Can some data be queued and other data be forwarded immediately?
To reduce network traffic throughout the day I want to queue some data at the heavy forwarder and deliver it on off hours, like 3am.

Nope, it cannot. You could use external scheduling mechanisms like cron to have the forwarder stop or start at certain times, but the forwarder itself has no functionality like this.
