CSV Engine Data Retention Period

In the CSV Engine you can specify the number of Observations that you wish to keep in your CSV file.

It would also be useful to able to specify a user specified data retention period (e.g. 24 hours) so that older entries get dropped off. This would then make it easy to display graphs for the last 24 hours for example. :)

CSV Engine Item Selection

A minor usability feature request: When you select an item (ID: field), it lists all devices and variables and then list is displayed at the bottom of the variable list. This means (in my case) there is an awful lot of scrolling to do before getting to the devices. It would be useful to be able to select from a device list or variable list.

As I said, very minor. :wink:

This is something that I've wanted to do for some time. Thanks for the suggestion.

I think this would be pretty trivial to implement. When adding a new CSV source, the workflow would then become:

  1. add title.
  2. choose whether a source is a device or a variable.
  3. choose from list of only devices or variables based on the answer to number 2.
  4. choose device state or variable value.
Thanks for the suggestion.
