Ring gauge widgets allow you to visualize the state of up to 4 variables at the same time, graphically compare them to one another, or show how close the variables are to their corresponding limits.

Create a Ring Gauge Widget
Step 1. While in a Dashboard, click on the top-right "+" button
Step 2. Select the ring gauge widget option
Step 3: Add up to 4 variables to be displayed and fill the following parameters:
Select the Aggregation Method to compute maximum, minimum, count, average or sum based on each variable's data or simply display the variable's last value.
Choose a Time span for each variable. Option "Set by dashboard" corresponds to the Dashboard's general date time picker span.
Select the Range value to set the limits of the arc for the variable within the Ring gauge. Negative values are accepted.
Select the variable Color in the color picker next to the variable or add a color logic based on the variable's value.
IMPORTANT NOTE: if your dashboard is dynamic and so is the Ring Gauge widget, you will need to enter the variable label that the dashboard is going to look for within the selected device.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: the variables are placed clockwise around the Ring starting at the 12 o'clock position. Also, the positive direction for values is clockwise.
Step 4: Make sure to name your Ring gauge widget, and configure the decimal places and date format if necessary.
