dotted graph



I have set the measure interval of a sensor to 15 minutes. The 2 day graph now shows a graph with dots. Is it possible to get a graph with lines instead of dots?

please reduce the scanning interval of the sensor. The dotts in the graph indcate that there are not enough values to show them as a graph.
Best regards

Hi, I do have the same problem - but I do have an interval of 1min. But in the PDF Report the graph is still dotted. Any suggestion?

There are two aspects you have to consider:

  • the scanning interval of the sensors you report on
  • the interval configured for a report

Please make sure that the scanning interval of the sensors you create the report for match the interval configured in the report. If the interval of the sensors is too large, there is simply not enough data to show drawn through graphs in reports.
