I want to compare data of a factory sensor with its own data of last week live, is it possible?



I have a factory sensor which is combination of two channels. I want to create a live graph on dashboard to compare this sensor with its own last week same day value. The graph should contain two channels for IN & out for today's traffic and also two channels for the same sensor but the data should be for last week. This help to identify the traffic trend and help to catch network problem.

I'm afraid this is not possible. Sorry.
You might have a look at the Unusual Detection for this purpose.
Best regards

Hi, Is it possible to do it now?

Hi there,

No, this is still not possible and it's unlikely to be featured in PRTG. There is currently no option that allows you to create a graph that relies on a sensors data from last week.

Konstantin's approach to look at the Unusual Detection is still valid.

Best regards,
