@ibrahim.alsyed abd @Brendan Buckbee .
The vessel volume calculations are available now both as no-code in Charts and as Python in the Industrial Data Science Library. Under the category “Equipment” you have calculations for Spherical, Torispherical and Ellipsoidal in both horizontal and vertical orientation. See an example below with the geometry as constants and the tank level as input:
Here is the link to the Python code and more detailed documentation: https://indsl.docs.cognite.com/equipment.html#vessels
Looking forward to you feedback!

I haven’t seen a request for this, but perhaps I’ve missed it. And, perhaps there is already a way to do this - I’m fairly new to Charts.
We have customers who want to have the ability to put up a chart and not touch it and see it update and scroll as time passes. Grafana has some nice features to allow a user to set the update frequency - this is to request is to bring this kind of functionality to Charts.
Thank you for the product idea, and if I understand you correctly, you would like there to be a way to set the chart to automatically update with new values as new values come in?
I will change this post to a product idea and you can track it's progress, and see how others engage with the idea and up vote it.
Best regards, Knut Vidvei
Yes, and to scroll the chart to keep it with the current date/time in view on the right.
Right, I understand.
Then I assume you want to keep it at the last X days/hours/min. What are the typical time frames you look at? And how often would you expect the data to refresh?
Ideally, it would work like Grafana does. You set a refresh interval from off to 5 sec to 1 day. And, you set the time frame from last 5 min to last 5 years.
