Please use the historic date functionality. But in PRTG7 showing historic data with the original scanning interval is only possible on a daily basis.

Besides that using a 1sec scanning interval is not recommended. In most cases it will not give you more accuracy! Most devices do not update their internal counter so fast. It is causing unnecessary load on the network and the device!

Rose Miller, then you must have sensors with also 1 second interval. This will fill-up the database / disk space verify quickly

Is this for testing or for monitoring?
