Factory Sensor round up %




I currently have a Factory Sensor gathering info from a few error log counter sensors which sums up all the entries as a numeral and divides it by 30 (wanting to get a breakdown of per minute error count for the past 30 minutes). The current formula works, sort of, but it does cause the data to be perceived as % sometimes if the total count is not divisible by 30.

Simple example: (Channel(198059,2))/(max(30))

Is there a way to round up the number, be it up or down?

Regards, Karasu

Hello Karasu,

I'm afraid that a round function does not exist in the sensor factory sensor, so this would require some external script handling to do the math on this.

Kind regards,
