how can I know if my data discrete or continues?

Hi

I have a process data set,  it is a period of decision making of each task comes into a system. I need to know whether this data continues or discrete to select the appropriate probability distribution for it?

Possible partial answer:
If the information about a period is stored using a start and end time-  you can check your data set for any elements that do NOT have an end time.  If you find any, you know your data set continues.  
A positive result will allow you to confirm with certainty that your data continues.  Unfortuntely the negative result proves nothing.
