User Story

As a PRTG User, I want be able to pick two or more time periods and see them in a single graph

Details of User Story

Often I need to compare metrics for the current period against metrics from a week, a month, and even a year ago. I would like to have an option in which I could overlay another, or optimally multiple time periods in a single graph. This would allow an easy method to determine growth and operational differences to report back to management or to track the need to purchase new hardware and services. This could be achieved by showing the same data based on a time offset that is user controllable.

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 - A method of choosing the alternate time period(s)
  • Criterion #2 - the ability to display each of time periods in all of the graph types
