The articles suggested doesn't say how to extract just channel total and average for certain sensors which I would also like. Is this possible? I have tried using /api/historicdata_totals.xml but I cannot figure out how to get data for the 'total' channel only. Can it be done?

Thanks in advance.

I'm afraid the average and total values would have to be calculated then from the data requested from the API. Unless you set the average to be the same as the entire period for the historic data request.
