Update: Measurements/Counters – Saving selections
SolidBlue has been updated. In the latest update it is now possible to save different selections in the trend recordings for measurements and counters. This is explained below using the measured values.
Measuremenst-selections can now be saved. As soon as the first selection has been saved, this view can be reloaded under “Saved selections” (see Figure 1: Overview). Simply select the desired view under Saved selections and press the “Load Selection” button. All trend selections and period settings are restored.
In the first step, you simply put your view together from a wide variety of measurements as usual. In the next step, the created configuration can be saved with the “Save selection as” button and specifying a name. If you want to make changes to an existing and already saved view, the current view can be overwritten with the “Save selection” button.
You simply select the devices and measurements that you want to display regularly and can then save these selections. If the panel “Saved selections” isn’t there or nothing is selected in it, the “Save selection” and “Save selection as” buttons behave the same and you can just save a new selection. If a selection is made in the “Saved selections” panel, it can be overwritten with the “Save selection” button. The previous selection is saved with the new configurations. A new selection is then saved with the “Save selection as” button and added to the “Saved selections” panel.
Special feature for time period selections
When saving a new selection (Figure 3), a name can be assigned, although duplicate names in the individual menu items (measurements/counters) are not possible. The “Date relative” slider can be used to specify how the selected period should be saved. If the switch is set to On, a relative period of time is saved starting from the date of saving. For example, if you save a selection on May 14th with a time period from May 7th 12:00 AM to May 14th 11:59 PM with the “Date relative” slider set to On, if you load the selection on May 27th, the Period from May 20th 12:00 AM to May 27th 11:59 PM is preassigned. If, on the other hand, the slider is set to Off, a fixed period of time is saved and the period May 7th 12:00 AM to May 14th 11:59 PM will always load.
Any number of selections can be saved so that you can quickly access the information on your devices. You can now call up before and after comparisons, target-actual comparisons and comparisons between different devices/systems more quickly and draw your conclusions.
