Daily increment



I'd like to create a sensor, which displays the daily increment of a file (or database).

How can I accomplish this?

Factory Sensor?

Many thanks in advance for some advise.

Not sure if I fully understand your question - do you want to see something additional?

The graphs should show you what you want to see...
