After upgrade 60C to 5.0.2 and reset to factory default, I can' t see Traffic History Widget anymore, how to enable Traffic History Widget in 5.0.2?

Traffic history is in the Dashboard.

Just re-add the widget. Edit: Scratch that. Just updated the firmware to v5.0.2 (on my little guy) and see the traffic history is missing from the list of available widgets.

Not perfect and likely not the proper way to add the traffic history, but managed to add the traffic history widget to the admin dashboard....
config system admin edit " admin" config dashboard edit 66 set widget-type tr-history set tab-id 1 set column 1 set interface " wan1" next end next end

Yes, replaced by a new " Traffic History" widget which is log based. Re-posted answer below:
Models with an SSD disk now support the new " Traffic History" widget which is log-based. This widget allows drill-down to see top sources/destinations/applications and individual sessions at a given point in the graph -- it' s significantly more flexible than the previous traffic history widget. The old widget is still supported but cannot be added from the GUI. You can enable it manually in the following place:
   config system admin  
      edit <user>  
        config dashboard  
           edit <widget_id>  
              set widget-type tr-history

Any number will do, providing it' s not already in use -- otherwise you' ll be just replacing an existing entry.
