### Max/Min Internet Up/Down - not sure what to do

Hi, I have a rather detailed internet monitor.
It captures up and down and displays it with a line graph.
It also displays the numerical values in real time.

What I think should be rather obvious, is to capture the maximum and minimum numerically, and hold that value until it is exceeded or receded.

The Measures would be calc Measures, if my reckoning is correct, but I am just a flop at maths.

Any recommendations or examples are welcome.

### Re: Max/Min Internet Up/Down - not sure what to do

In general, maximum and minimum values can be obtained by comparing current value and stored Min. and Max. values, like this;

Code: Select all

``````[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
BackgroundMode=2
SolidColor=192,192,192,192

[Variables]
MaxValue=0
MinValue=1000

[someMeasure]
Measure=Calc
Formula=Random
LowBound=0
HighBound=1000
DynamicVariables=1

[measureMax]
Measure=Calc
Formula=[someMeasure]-#MaxValue#
IfConditionMode=1
IfCondition=#CURRENTSECTION#>0
IfTrueAction=[!SetVariable MaxValue [someMeasure]]
DynamicVariables=1

[measureMin]
Measure=Calc
Formula=[someMeasure]-#MinValue#
IfConditionMode=1
IfCondition=#CURRENTSECTION#<0
IfTrueAction=[!SetVariable MinValue [someMeasure]]
DynamicVariables=1

[meterCurrentValue]
Meter=String
MeasureName=someMeasure
X=5
Y=5
W=150
H=20
Text=Current value: %1
DynamicVariables=1

[meterMaxValue]
Meter=String
X=5
Y=25
W=150
H=20
Text=Max value: #MaxValue#
DynamicVariables=1

[meterMinValue]
Meter=String
X=5
Y=45
W=150
H=20
Text=Min value: #MinValue#
DynamicVariables=1
``````
Of course, using Max() and Min() built-in functions is possibly more smart. I am afraid that if this is not what you want...

### Re: Max/Min Internet Up/Down - not sure what to do

Thanks mak_kawa

The solution I found given your example is this:

Code: Select all

``````[Variables]
m=>
n=>

[MeasureUpMax]
Measure=Calc
Formula=MeasureUpMax > MeasureOUT2 ? MeasureUpMax : MeasureOUT2
DynamicVariables=1

[MeasureUpMin]
Measure=Calc
Formula=MeasureUpMin #m# MeasureOUT2 ? MeasureUpMin : MeasureOUT2
DynamicVariables=1

[MeasureDnMax]
Measure=Calc
Formula=MeasureDnMax > MeasureIN2 ? MeasureDnMax : MeasureIN2
DynamicVariables=1

[MeasureDnMin]
Measure=Calc
Formula=MeasureDnMin #n# MeasureIN2 ? MeasureDnMin : MeasureIN2
DynamicVariables=1

[SwitchUp]
Measure=Calc
Formula=0 < MeasureNetOut ? 1 : 0
IfAboveValue=0
IfAboveAction=!SetVariable m <

[SwitchDn]
Measure=Calc
Formula=0 < MeasureNetIn ? 1 : 0
IfAboveValue=0
IfAboveAction=!SetVariable n <
``````

Grr.
It's still not right.

Min values seem to change for a bit then they get stuck on zero.

Stuck now...

peculiar behaviour ensues...

toying around again - things seem to go rightly for a bit then they sort of freeze - max at a random number and low at zero...

But the minimum always is 0, no? I mean that when refreshing the skin, both the [MeasureIN2] and [MeasureOUT2] measures are equal to zero, so there will be no other minimum value than 0.
Getting the maximum is much logical and beside the posted methods another one would be this:

Code: Select all

``````[MeasureUpMax]
Measure=Calc
Formula=( Max ( MeasureUpMax, MeasureOUT2 ))
;DynamicVariables=1

[MeasureDnMax]
Measure=Calc
Formula=( Max ( MeasureDnMax, MeasureIN2 ))
;DynamicVariables=1``````
No need to set the dynamic variables, so I commented out the appropriate options. Mor3bane

### Re: Max/Min Internet Up/Down - not sure what to do

Well the idea behind the switching less than / greater than operator was proposed by kenz0 here https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=4555#p30987

It seems to work if you did not try my skin out - everything functions rather well - however after some time the values for the min values just freeze, then at random the max values also fail to register - i have no idea why - i am not sure if it is programmatic or intrinsic to rainmeter base code.

I will try your suggestion balala, since the max values seem to fail either way - that is if the <> idea is flawed or my base formulae are.

Getting the min value to update after a rise and fall in constant usage would be awesome - so that if the min does reach zero - it picks up again after rising then falling-not-to-zero-again forever.

Yes, but there only the maximum value is calculated. As I said, I don't think there is a way to get the minimum value, because it always will be zero.

Please post the whole code of your skin. Simply copy it entirely and paste it here. I'd like to check it.

Good idea, will try to make it to properly work and later will be back with a possibility, if I find any. Mor3bane
