Creating a Snapshot

A Snapshot represents a series of tests run at a point in time for the pages and test profiles of your site.

Automated Snapshots

Calibre will automatically create snapshots (a series of tests) at allocated intervals. When you create a new Site, it will default to being tested every 6 hours.

You can change the scheduler to your needs when adding a new Site or later on on the Site → Settings → Agent Settings page.

The options are:

  • Off: the scheduler will not run for this site. This is useful if you’re creating regular snapshots following deployments or as part of a continuous integration suite.
  • Daily, at a given hour: Snapshots will be created at a nominated hour, every day.
  • Hourly: Snapshots will be created every hour of the day.
  • Every X Hours: Snapshots will be created every ’x’ number of hours.

Manual Snapshots

There might be times when you want to create a snapshot manually or automatically as part of your continuous integration system.

To manually create a snapshot for your site, visit the snapshots page, then press the “Take a Snapshot” button.
