Examples of common TIME command requests

The following examples of the TIME command demonstrate how to request historical data for various time intervals.


For these examples, assume that today's date is April 15, 2018.

Time interval request

Command string


Retrieve data from one week ago

TIME 08APR2018 09:25

Displays data from the previous week at the end of the interval that contains 9:25 (that is, the interval between 9:15 and 9:30)

Display data from the next interval


Requests the next interval (the default) from the date and time last specified. Using the previous example, data from April 8, during the interval from 9:30 to 9:45, is displayed.

Display data for a specific time period

TIME 15APR2018 12:00 3H

Displays data from the three-hour period ending on April 15, 2018 at 12 noon

Display data from the next day

TIME 16APR2018 = =

Displays data from the next day during the same time period. The equal signs request the last specified time and duration. Using the previous example, these values would be 12:00 and 3H.

Display data for a specific time period

TIME 15APR2018 08:00 30M

Displays data for the 30 minutes ending at 8:00 on April 15

Display data for a specific time

TIME * 9:00

Displays data from today at 9:00. The asterisk indicates the current date.

Reestablish the current time

TIME * * *

Reestablishes the current time


If the returned window information does not look as you expected, the probable cause is that data was not available during one or more of the intervals that you requested. For example, if you entered TIME * 11:00 4I, you would expect the following line:


If you receive the following line instead, data was not recorded between 10:45 and 11:00, so the time field says 10:45.:
