There are several dataset types:
- Variable-based time series charts. These charts show changes of a value over time. This type of chart is updated whenever the value changes, and it can also load historical values from the server database or statistics.
- Event-based time series charts. The chart is updated when a certain event occurs, and its vertical axis shows this event's property. For example, if a Temperature Alert is activated when the temperature exceeds the certain limit, an event-based chart will show all alert temperature measurements.
- Custom charts. These are statistical charts constructed from any tabular data. The concept is very similar to any spreadsheet which bases diagrams upon a cell block/range selection.
- Trends. These are data series based on other time series. Supported trends include linear/power regression, moving average, percentile, and more.
Chart and Diagram Features
Chart components are extremely flexible. Customization capabilities are virtually unlimited:
- Customizable colors, strokes, renderers (line, spline, step, bar, etc.), headers, legends, tooltips, gridlines, crosshairs, range/domain markers, value marks, annotations, and more
- Several data series and axes on one chart
- Configurable time units and ranges for time-based charts
- Combined charts allowing several charts to share a single axis
- Thousands of fine-tuning options
- Real-time mouse zooming, panning, and guideline creation
- Context menu for fine-tuning, printing and exporting
