Is there any way to show 24h graphs that always begin at 00:00?



Basically, what I'd like to view are graphs that always begin at 00:00, making it easier to compare saved/exported graphs (as they all are starting at the same time of day), or graphs that always being at 00:00 to make it easier to observe what's going on throughout the current workday. This would also mean having access to i.e. weekly graphs that are from Mon 00:00 to Sun 24:00. Or monthly graphs running from day 1 to the last day of the month.

The values you can set in the PRTG admin settings are quite arbitrary (i.e. 4 hours 240 values, 1 day 1 min avg, etc), and are directly related to PRTG's internal processing and handling of data. But these values don’t necessarily make much sense in the practical manner of presenting the data to humans and our own time scales (days, week, months, etc.).

I know that you can use i.e. "sdate=2020-05-05-00-00-00&edate=2020-05-05-24-00-00" in the URL of the graphs, but I'm looking for a way to do this directly in PRTG's web UI (or in the maps).

Is there any way to use dynamic URLs to show these types of graphs based on today's date, or even the current week (beginning at previous Monday 00:00?).

If not, I would really like to see this as a feature. I've been holding off for a few years, sort of hoping that you would incorporate this in the web interface without having to ask for it. But it seems like this isn’t happening :-) so I'm requesting this as a feature request. I'm quite sure a large portion of users would like to see this as well. A date marker (i.e. a red line) at 24:00 would be lovely as well.

Hi there,

Since I'm afraid to tell you that it is still working as you described, please open a feature request for it.

Kind regards
