In CCS, you can set a limit on the duration for which a collection-evaluation-reporting (CER) job runs. For a typical CER job, the major part of the duration is consumed by the collection activity. Therefore very often a CER job times out while the collection activity is still in progress. In such a case, the data collected from assets on which the data collection was complete, is not used for evaluation and report generation and the CER job is run again on the complete set of scoped assets.
