Taking a snapshot creates a new snapshot entry in the dSource‚Äôs Timeflow.  The plugin-managed dSource allows you to select the parameters before taking the snapshot. These parameters are provided as an input to pre-snapshot and post snapshot functions. On the other hand, in the default snapshot, the parameters are pre-defined in the dSource environment.
