Lorawan not Showing a true representation on site!

One of my sites is comprised of a Ve direct Lorawan module & 100/50 SmartSolar mppt,to monitor the solar output and battery state of the remote location.ive installed my own gateway to communicate with the remote site which is all online,and RSSI of -79db according to the VRM.however when I compare the on-site data locally on the App of the mppt to the VRM, they paint two very different pictures of the solar production being recorded for the same 4 day period!..anyone else had this issue?......

The LoRaWAN only sends once in a hour the data (Solar Power, Battery Voltage, Battery Current, Battery Power, Error code, Charge state (Off, Bulk, Absorption, Equalize, Float)) at this exact moment.

Yes I get that thanks......@Matthias Lange

I Was on site working For Over 2 hours on one of the above days,Where the mppt was in bulk with full sun,and load on the batteries!....so the 2 x hourly transmissions During that period didn’t reflect the true state!
