Disabled Filled Channel Per Graph

Votes:

We have custom graphs that display data from multiple locations, but none of the data is a higher priority than the other. With channel 1 being filled it really makes a mess of the graph in this particular situation.

Is there a way to disabled filled graph mode? If not, could you add an option under sensor display for "Show channels independently (no fill)".

Along those same lines, is there a way to have all channels on a custom graph display their Max and Min values?

Thanks

Dear Joe,

I'm afraid it's only possible to set the graph style (filled or lines) globally (under "Setup"->"System Administration"->"Server & Website"->"Graph Type"), not for individual sensors. Please see manual section System Administration—System and Website.

Additonally, you can switch between Show channels independently (default) and Stack channels on top of each other in the settings of each individual sensor. Please see manual section Sensor Settings.

Best Regards.

I found a way around it that works fine, there's just no min max on the chart.

I made the Downtime channel the primary channel and then set it to not display in the graph, this made all of my channels on the graph lines like I wanted.

Thanks

Joe's workaround does work (it's what I do), but for me if the PRTG server is rebooted it resets the primary channel back.

I've found this on v8.1 and v8.2

This is due to the fact that the downtime channel is not supposed to be the primary channel. Tihs can cause internal problems in PRTG.

Is there a plan for the future to implement this as a native feature of PRTG? Especially when comparing values (load of line 1, 2 and 3 of an UPS) within a single "Formelsensor" this would be great!

I'm afraid this is currently not planned.
