I keep state data indefinitely and frequently want to have a look at a specific timeperiod (for example to check what the power savings are if I turn off my coffee machine in the afternoon for 2h). To achieve that I am having a view that is littered with graphs which I mostly use once and then at some point remove again.
It would be great to have a metrics explorer that lets you choose one or more states and a timeframe. The history page is not well suited for that since it requires a restart to change the metrics being displayed but it is the only option to get a date picker.
How are others achieving that?
