Maximum values in graphs, please!



Apparently this is a old and painful issue dating back from before 2010 if I believe the posts here, but anyway it bugs me too that this hasn't been fixed in the mean time. Or am I mistaken?

I want to see the maximum value in graphs instead of the average for time periods. That is more meaningful data to me.

Honestly, it can't be that difficult to implement. One just adds min,max and avg values into the round robin database for each timeframe and lets the user make a choice which one(s) is(are) displayed in the graphs.

Hello there,

Honestly, it is that difficult :)

Thing is, a 3rd party component is being used here that "comes as it is" and yes, it is quite old. We're currently also looking for something new here to replace it in the future. I would recommend to post a feature request as described here.

Kind regards,
