Trigger event based on flow time

Post by lcheng » Thu May 19, 2016 12:34 am

I want to trigger an event based on the cumulated flow time (or the cumulated time when flowregulator.enabled = true) of a flow node. I tried to use the Timer and set the interval type of "TimeInState", but it doesn't work. Any ideas? :shock:

Use the Monitor element to monitor when the value of a state crosses a threshold.

Thanks for your post, that does work for tracking the "enabled" time of a flownode. Is there a way to track the cumulated "running time" of a flow node? I want to exclude the "idle" time from the total "enabled" time of the node and only count when there is flow running through.
