Hello,

I understand the technical difference between a time weighted vs event weight calculation, but what it's unclear to me is when I should use one or the other. I'm using Datalink to calculate an average over a period of time. The values I get are very different if I choose one or the other calculation mode.

Time weighted calculation. Average = 1950

Event weighted calculation. Average = 4601

My end result is going to be very different depending of the calculation mode I decide to choose. So, is there any rule of thumb to know when I should use time or event weighted?

Thanks,

Oscar
