Convolution
For chart views containing analog data, this property works in conjunction with the Interval to perform logic on the sampled data. The result of this logic is displayed on the chart. Convolution is only available when Interval is not set to Auto. For example, if Interval is set to 1 hour and Convolution is set to Average, the chart view displays the average of the samples taken each hour.

Save
