Can I use cumulative sum aggregation on some metrics?



I have a custom sensor with 3 channels: avg_time, max_time, count. In live data, those metrics are obviously correct. However, in historic data, the metrics are averaged through the period of time, and that's not very helpful. I can use the maximum value mode for the max_time channel, and that's good. Ideally, I'd like to sum all data for the count channel.

Thank you very much for your contact.

I'm not sure if I undersood your issue correctly. You can set the Average Interval in your Historic Data report to No Interval (Display Raw Data). You can also export this report as a CSV file and perform the desired operation outside of PRTG.
Please note that PRTG can display Raw Data only for up to 40 days, if the set interval exceeds 40 days PRTG will by default calculate averages again. More about Historic Data Reports you can find here.

Kind regards,
