Can someone explain what this AHI graph means. And There are a lot of graphs, but I don't really know the meaning of 1/2 of them. Is there a site that explains all this?
Thanks in advance

That's graph, the AHI one, is a breakdown by time. Which means at that time when the graph is marked, at the current rate you are having events, your AHI is X. It is a confusing graph and I've never paid it any attention. Time is one of the components of determining AHI and is the most variable.

As for what it all means,

Sure, the AHI graph is your AHI (which is an average) over the one hour period shown on the x-axis.

It's a good general indicator but not "the last word" in how you feel or if anything specific needs a little help.

I have never understood the "by pressure" graph and never even look at it.

A couple of other important graphs to take a look at are "Leak Rate" and "Pressure" and most importantly "Events" since this will give you a good overview.

Also, you can rearrange the order the graphs are shown in, pin them to the top if you want, and hide those that you're not interested in.

I_will_never_sleep_again,
If you haven't read enough, here is another link that will probably be the same as the other links.
