Question

What is the retention period for data in TSDB? How can I fetch data from TSDB if I want to observe a trend over a particular period of time?

@Shraddha - the retention period of data in your account is determined by the package your company is signed up for - our Enterprise plans have two years of data retention, and our Pro plans have one year.

In terms of seeing that historical data, you can either adjust the time range on a device graph, or on a dashboard graph, or possibly pull it from the API.

Hope that helps!

Best,

Kerry

I am able to grab a time series of data using the API, but I'd love to be able to make a virtual datapoint using historical data to put into a widget.  We have calculations we perform to pull data from our current monitoring suite for determining "right-sizing" of VMs.  These calculations require at least a 24 hour set of CPU/DISK/MEM counters to be able to grab min/max for the calculations.  I can grab this using a Powershell script and generate the report as we currently do, but I'd love to make it a live thing if possible.  Access to 1 week/2 weeks of counter data from within the LM interface would be amazing (The current system aggregates after 2 weeks of individual datapoint storage for us to use).  I second this call for time series datapoints
