A profile analysis is useful for identifying data trends for a data source over a specific time period. You can see statistical information (maximum, minimum, and average) usage over days, weeks, months, or at other key times such as weekdays and weekends.
Select Analysis | Advanced Scripts. The Advanced Scripts workspace appears.
From the Analysis menu, select Generate | Profile. The Profile Analysis window appears.
In the Data source field, click the 'search' icon (). The Select Data window appears.
Select the data source whose interval data you want to include in the analysis.
Click the 'plus' icon () to open folders and view their contents.
- If you are unable to locate the appropriate device, click More to reveal search options:
Select the desired data subset from the Look In: drop-down options, and input the known text in the Text: box. If uncertain of the precise text, or if desirable to select from a series of similar IDs, use the asterisk (*) wildcard in place of a character string or word. Then click the icon to search the database for the string.
In the Date range section, select a date range that the analysis should encompass.
To set a predefined date range, select the appropriate time frame in the Range field.
To set a specific date range, in the Start and End date fields, type the date or use the drop-down arrow to select the date from a calendar.
Click OK. The Select Data window closes.
In the Group by field, select a grouping option from the drop-down list.
If you have run an analysis previously and would like to add the current analysis to it, select the Append to script check box. (If Append to script is not selected, the results of the previous analysis are overwritten.)
After making your selections, click OK.
