Gauge scale



Hi all,

can I set in the gauge graphic the max limit? As example: I'm using the gauge to show the ping in msec, I want to setup the gauge with a green area from 0 to 100, yellow area from 100 to 200, red area from 200 to 300.

Atm instead the scale is automatic so if a ping reach 700 I see a gauge with a big red area and a very small green/yellow area. The scale of the time-graph is perfect: I've set it manually and works perfectly.

Hi Andrea,

You can enable the so called limits by clicking the small gear within the channel panel. Set "Enable Limits" and you can define upper and lower warning/error limits :)
Set the upper warning limit to 99 and the upper error limit to 199 and you're good to go :)

Kind regards,

Hi Stephan,

I had already set up the limits for the sensor but the problem is that if I've got an high value the graphical scale of the gauge change relating to the high value.

As example: if I've got a warning limit of 200, error limit of 500, the gauge scale go from 0 to 500 (and is perfect). If the sensor register a spike of 1000 the gauge scale change to 0-1000.

Is there a solution to keep the range fixed?

Ah, that's what you meant - sorry, that range can't be fixed :(
