  • LIVE_MODE_ENABLED - (bool) Default: true
  • LIVE_MODE_PERIOD_MS - (long) period (in ms) that live mode will run for. Default: 60000
  • LIVE_MODE_INTERVAL_MS - (long) the interval (in ms) between snapshots. Default: 3500
  • LIVE_MODE_MAX_CONCURRENT_USERS - (long) the maximum number of concurrent sessions. Default 2


Enter live mode by clicking the 'play' button in the top right hand corner of the Kpow UI.

Exit live mode by clicking the spinning 'stop' button.

Live mode runs for a configurable period of time after which the user is presented with an option to continue or exit back to normal operation.
