Data granularity shown by default
NTA Flow Storage database supports saving flow data without compression and with one-minute granularity. However, charts display data in such detail only for time periods up to five hours.
Data are summarized in the following way:
- For time periods up to five hours, charts display data with one-minute granularity. Data are not summarized.
- For time periods of five hours up to 48 hours, charts display data with 15-minute granularity.
- For time periods of 48 hours up to seven days, charts display data with one-hour granularity.
- For time periods longer than seven days, charts display data with six-hour granularity.

To see flow data with one-minute granularity, set the time period displayed by the view to up to five hours, focusing on the period you are interested in most.
