Why is vrm charts smoothed?

edit post to clarify.

1. VRM shows useless presentation of data.

2. Short peak data is not even in the raw excel data.

for problem 1. See the picture of SOC over a month Periode.

when looking at this you think the all charges goes to 99-100%?

but they do... where ever you zoom in, will show the same as picture 2.

Beside that is a problem that the system really not catching peak loads for analyzing.


question is for Victron... as its not a support question, but in bug categori..


here is marked in the view what have zoom, compare to non zoom view.
as you can see, the presentation of soc in the one month overview is useless.

same problem for all other data. Load, kwatt, peaks etc. Its really useless for actual analyzing work.

@Rune Eilertsen, this could be because of the reporting interval from you GX device.

Menu > Settings > VRM online portal , then find "log interval"

Here are same problem when analyzing kwatt load history.

overview shows like 8 kwatt peak...

zoomed view shows around 36kW!!

(and the rel truth, its mostly even a lot more for short time peak.

it is very problematic when use this as a decision and monitor tool for whathoing on with a machine.... strange nobody have mention it before.. its a problem for long time.

see the overview and oomed view. Again,, totally different presentation of the same data..
for each time zoom in, the peak get higher value......

@mvader (Victron Energy) has this been updated? Being able to see peaks and troughs accurately in any view would be super handy

There has been an update to VRM to enable Max/Min visibility in the settings cog for each widget;
