Description
Having some graphs for all-time, last year and maybe last month or so would be cool. Thanks!

So for the historical bwauth measuring graphs - I think i will generate historical data for them... What i do currently is place data into a sqlite database, and then every hour export the most recent 90 days worth of data in a csv for javascript graph generation. I think I will backfill the database... so I ought to be able to generate some one-off graphs like the ones you created showing historical data.
I'm wondering if/what is the best approach to let my consensus-health graphs get configurable and usable in metrics.tpo

That would be neat!

Fine question! There's no easy answer, because so far we don't use externally provided .csv files for graphs on Tor Metrics. But I could imagine doing this in the future, if the data reaches back to more than the past 90 days (ideally a few years back when bandwidth authorities became a thing). We could simply fetch the .csv files as part of the cronjob that generates .csv files. Though I'd say, for now, let's start with the graphs on consensus-health.tpo and see if they're as useful as we hope. If they are, let's have this discussion again!

I have created a first draft of the historical graphs here, covering 90, 180, 365, and 720 days: https://ritter.vg/misc/bwauth-historical/graphs-historical.html
If these graphs are useful enough (for now) this can be the final draft until.... I expect that I will be making interactive graphs that enable historical analysis also, so feedback on how these graphs look will guide into that.

Adding a verb to the summary to make this ticket "actionable". Speaking of, what remains to be done here?

I don't think anything needs to be done, unless Sebastian or Karsten or anyone has comments about the graphs (either the look or questions about the data.) Although it's been a while since I generated them so I will need to relearn what I did ;)

Will be completed in 2018.
I put a sample graph on #21882, because there were lots of good thoughts on making such a graph. Please take a look there. Once we have a graph we're happy with, I'll make one for a few months of data (which takes a while).
