so what are the commands to do it. Thanks

I looked at that link before, but it doesn't specify that you can look at metrics say from 2 days ago or maybe a week. It just shows you can change the update time but not view older info.

I'm afraid it's realtime.

checkout my EE Article for other free ideas, which can record your metrics, eg. Veeam One for Free.
