Device data management

Device data management

The device page provides tools for visualizing, filtering, editing, and exporting variables, facilitating the management of data received by your device. You can access these tools by navigating to the Device module, selecting a device, and clicking on the 'Data' tab. 

Amount of data records

The amount of data stored in each device is displayed at the top of the page. When the number of data records exceeds 1,000 registers, TagoIO will start to display a truncated value. This represents an estimated number of data registers, not an exact one.

By accessing the Device module, you will find a list of your devices and the amount of data each contains. These numbers are also truncated when greater than 1,000 registers. The values might include letters representing the number of decimal places, where "K" stands for thousand, "M" for million, "B" for billion, and "T" for trillion.

Data stored on your devices consumes your Data Storage service. You can visualize how much of the limit is left or upgrade it by going to the Billing Page in your Admin.

Managing variable data

The 'Data' tab on your device page lists all stored variables, including their names, values, group, metadata, and time. Here, you can inspect each variable individually and export. For Mutable  devices, you can even edit or delete them.

Filtering Variables

Filter options within the 'Data' tab enable you to refine your variable search based on specific criteria.

The table visualization can be customized by adjusting column visibility or changing the time format, this option is accessible through the cog icon in the table's lower-left corner.

Editing and deleting variables individually

For mutable devices, individual variables can be edited or deleted directly from this tab. Editing is as simple as hovering over the desired information and clicking the pencil icon. To delete, select the variables and click 'Delete selected'. Once done, this action is irreversible.

For immutable devices, it is not possible to edit data individually; data can only be deleted through the data chunks. Read more about it here: Chunk Management.

Exporting variables

The ‘Export Data’ button, located in the top right corner of the ‘Data’ tab, allows for variable data export in various formats. Further details on exporting data for specific device types can be found under: Data Export.

Emptying your Device Data

While it's feasible to remove variables one by one, there's a more efficient method to wipe all data simultaneously.

Navigate to the Device module and choose the device you wish to clear. Then, proceed to the 'More' tab and select the 'Empty Bucket' option.
