  • Optimistic. Use the steepest visible slope value.

  • Pessimistic. Use the lowest, non-zero, visible slope value.

  • Most Often. Use the visible non-zero slope value that occurs most often.  If no slope value occurs more frequently than any other, use the average.

 None

Aggregation Type

Indicates how to aggregate the historical data.  The options are:
