The calculation method determines which value will be used in Profile:

Mean The mean average of all the values in the previous collection period
e.g. For Hourly Data, Mean will calculate the mean average of the values from all the minutes collected in the previous hour
First The first value collected within the previous collection period
e.g. for Hourly Data, First will use the first value collected in the previous hour
Last The last value collected within the previous collection period
e.g. for Hourly Data, Last will use the last value collected in the previous hour
Maximum The highest value collected within the previous collection period
e.g. for Hourly Data, Maximum will use the highest value collected in the previous hour
Minimum The lowest value collected within the previous collection period
e.g. for Hourly Data, Minimum will use the lowest value collected in the previous hour

6. Click on the next data collection section in the sidebar and repeat steps 3–5

7. Repeat step 6 for all of the applicable data collection sections in the sidebar

Data won’t be collected until all the mandatory information for a collection section has been completed.

Icons denote the status of each data collection section as follows:

icon-rtu-setup-complete Mandatory information complete
icon-rtu-setup-incomplete Mandatory information incomplete
Section can’t be accessed because the specified poll rate is greater than the time interval of the section
icon-rtu-setup-disabled Section disabled because no fields have been specified
