        Looking for an easy to use (low learning curve) graphing program that will display 1-3 inputs. I would like to have the cursor hovering ability to display data points from the inputs to compare readings. Input data would come from a mysql db or csv file located on a local server.

          Would Highcharts be suitable?

            I have looked at Highcharts but when hovering the mouse over a data point on the graph, only that data point value and time stamp were displayed. I needed to move my mouse to each input graph line to see the data point value for that input.

            My desire is to have 1-3 inputs displayed on a graph. Hovering my mouse would show a data point balloon listing values (temp) for all 1-3 inputs at that particular time for comparison. Maybe this is a function of Highcharts but I couldn’t find any information regarding this feature.

              Depending on your data source, you might really like Grafana – my go-to favourite. I used InfluxDB time series DB in the backend and it plugs in seamlessly.

                I’ve been using flot, which uses jquery, as my website was already using jquery. Data comes from mysql / php
