Thank you, Eric. The latest release, for both architectures, has been downloaded.

I shall now "have a play".  :angel:

I can happily say that Version 0.3 is looking very good.

I have been running it with a setting to harvest the data once per minute and plot sixty minutes to a graph. Horizontal scrolling works quite nicely, I wonder what the limit to the scroll would be?

Four screen-shots are attached below (for the benefit of those whose orientation is directed towards a different OS).

One current request. Would it be possible to have an interstitial mark at the midpoint between each "named" point on the y-axis of each graph, please? I.e. for the SNR margin graph, at 1, 3, 5, 7, etc, dB, for the Connection speed graph, at 1000, 3000, 5000, etc, kbps and for the Bitloading graph, at 1, 3, 5, 7, etc, bits?

Many thanks for the feedback.

I don't know what the limit on scrolling is (if there is one), but I will try to find out. For the SNR margin and connection speed graphs I've used a ready-made graphing component which is provided with Lazarus, and the historical data is stored automatically by this component, so the limit will be the amount of storage space allocated. For these graphs, the amount of data stored isn't very much, so I don't envisage a problem.

The bitloading graph is different. Quite a lot of data is produced with each sample, and the off-the-shelf graphing component tends to choke up on the amount of historical data which it stores, unnecessarily in this case. So I've written my own graphing component for this graph, and no historical data is stored. I'll be providing a snapshot facility  to allow users to store historical data as external files.

I should be able to add the interstitial marks - this looks like a good idea.

I have it running again now on my backup PC. It does seem to give an error if the wrong command is selected to get the data, something about a list index out of range. I'll have a go at capturing the error again later.

Thanks Stuart. I've got to add some error trapping to deal with that sort of situation.

Thanks, that enables me to pinpoint where the issue is.


Now corrected for next version (soon).

Just found this Eric, I will test at a later date as I have some big issues to sort out with my remote backup system and time is running out fast.
