Time series data

← Return to Glossary

Time series data is a sequence of named data points which typically contains consecutive measurements over a period of time. Every data point in time series data has an associated timestamp, which records the date and time of the measurement.

In P2 Server, each of these named data points are referred to as tags.

Time series data is used in pages and calculations, but is also often represented in a trend, which makes it easier to find and identify patterns over time for analysis and forecasting.

Time series data is obtained from sources such as data historians, and requires a tag datasource.
