    Calculated series: Show a trend line

    The trend lines are only intended as approximate predictions of future data.

    Check this box if you want to display the sum of all data series in the form of stacked bars or lines.

    Calculated Series: Show the 95th percentile line

    Check this box to show the 95th percentile line. This is a well-known statistical standard used to discard maximum spikes, based on 5 minute data samples. The calculation gathers these values every 5 minutes for however long you select, throwing away the top 5% so as to yield the 95th percentile value.
