The number of simulation days between snapshots


snapshot_interval = <n>


This simulation property determines the number of days between periodic snapshots.

If n > 0, the first snapshot will occur after simulation day n, and then after each subsequent n days.

The default value is 0, which produces no periodic snapshots.

The number of periodic snapshots that are kept is determined by the number of other snapshots that are requested, and the value of the snapshots property.



A numeric value interpreted as a number of days between snapshots, or 0 for no periodic snapshots.


The following code will produce a snapshot every 30 days. The last two will be kept.

simulation {
            snapshot_interval = 30
    snapshots = 2
