How can I edit data file to remove rogue values?



Router sometimes gives a nonsense result (e.g. 60MBps for a slow ADSL link) and that suppresses the graphs - I'd like to be able to remove/replace the odd readings.

the removal of such single peak-values is not possible. What you could do however is to use the Spike Filter in the sensors Channel-tab where you have these 'wrong' peaks. Of course it might also be good to investigate the reason of these peaks (overflows in 32bit SNMP-Counters or WMI-Counters, etc.), if they happen quite frequently.

Best Regards.
