Component State Sample Paths
The component state information is saved in the data set
For each change of state in the simulation, a new
observation is added.
This data set contains three variables: TIMENOW, the simulation
time when the state change occurred;
ID, the id of the component that is changing state;
and STATE, the value of the new state.
Figure 7.9 shows an example.
Notice that the ID corresponds to either the server or
the queue as given in the dictionary in Figure 7.8.

Sample path data are not saved to WORK.SAMPLE until the
Collect Data check box in the Simulation control panel
(see Figure 1.5) is selected.
