Behavior SLO Display - 1hours

We can create SLOs with metrics (e.g. error budget) which are defined as 1 week, 1 day, or 1 hour.
So, if we choose to configure 1 hour, the error budget will be recredited every hour.
This allows us to obtain a quick view of the state of the service over 1 hour (almost real time in the end).

However, if we display this SLO over a higher time period, say 1 day, or 1 week.
What do the displayed values correspond to? The current 1h values, whatever happens?
Or an averaged value of each hour across the entire selected time period?

Hi @gbaudart 

When you view this SLO over a longer time period, such as 1 day or 1 week, the displayed values typically represent aggregated data over the selected time frame.

Thanks @radek_jasinski 
That's what I thought but I wasn't sure.
So if I want to build SLOs that are close to a real-time "weather" vision, with error budgets, the best is to create this SLO over 1 hour?
And if C-level management wants from time to time a vision over a higher period, they can position themselves over a 1 week, or more, with values which will be aggregated.
Does my reasoning seem correct to you?
