# New question with smooth node – General

Ok, I’m still trying.

The other day I asked about how to do something and I was pointed towards the smooth node.

I redacted a question I posted on how to reset it. (Didn’t read all the docs)
But that raised a problem as I see it.

I want it to show the MINIMUM value.

That’s easy enough if/when a series of data is sent through it.

But what happens when it is reset?

minimum is a problem.

I send the reset message (msg.reset = true) and set msg.payload = 0 which is fine for the MAX and AVG (sorry: mean) values.

But what about MINIMUM – or reset in general?

Sending a 0 it sort of skews the MAX and MEAN values too.
